Question Scratching Problem

I have a 5 month old German Shepherd. I have had German Shepherd dogs before, but have never had one that scratches like the one I have now. What I mean by that is that she does not just raise her paw, she raises her paw and digs her claws into you. When you try to pull her paw down, she just raises her other paw and scratches you with her other paw. I have tried telling her no, but she continues this behavior anyway. I have never tried to teach her to lift her paw. This is just something she does on her own. If anyone has any ideas about how to correct this problem, I would greatly appreciate it. I frequently have claw marks on both of my arms as a result of this. Thank you in advance for your help.
