Why does my dog bite the leash when I get it out? Does this mean she doesn't want to walk?

My hunch is she's actually just enthusiastically playing /reacting to you're doing an activity together and doesn't understand that she will miss out on a walk if her teeth actually sever through the leash.

I'd suggest training with a calm "no", "leave it" or "sit", and "take it" commands (at which point substitute the leash with one of her toys which she can bite).
