she has a mouth like a croc.

For the croc mouth, get a plastic bristled brush and use that for retrieves for a little while. She'll learn pretty quickly not to chomp down. The knobby rubber bumpers also help.
the "water dog" book or DVD are both great, but you might want to consult other source and merge them.
