What treats does she like. You can try to offer your finger with the step up command & have a treat or toy in your other hand, usually they will bypass the nip to get to the toy or treat but you must be consistant. If she looks like she is going to nip tell her "no be gentle". Some also use a stick & the step up command.

Re: Getting my GCC to step up

Exactly what Pedro says. Reinforce with a tasty treat and she will be stepping up in no time. This also helps build trust = )
