PostSubject: Over Excited Dog   Fri 27 Apr 2012, 4:20 pm

Has anyone got any advise re: my 11 month old staffie cross, he keeps jumping up and biting (not aggressively) my partners arms/hands and clothing when he is going through the door. He is a big dog and very powerful i'm worried hes going to hurt my partner hes ripped several coats and broke the skin on his wrist and arms, he doesn't do it to me and now the other dog (2 yrs old) is getting similiar in this department. Any advise would be great, thank you.

Hi - have you had Rocky since he was a pup?

Diesel used to do this to me - he used to nip my bum and it blooming hurt at times - however it was my fault as I was too soft with him - I kinda let him get away with a lot and won't discipline him where my OH would - and Diesel would never dare try to mouth him.

How we stopped it was when Diesel didn't do something I asked - Paul used to back me up and then make me repeat the command - then praise Diesel when he did good.

It didnt take long for Diesel to fall back into the pack - but as I say its my fault for not addressing things and letting Diesel rule me lol x

I have been here before, Megan was a rescue and used to do this all the time, to be honest if it wasnt for my daughter I think I would have sent her back to rescue ( I never ever thought I would do this) but I honestly couldnt see things changing!!! BUT within a few weeks of just completely ignoring her when she jumped up/bit me things changed. She is now the most obedient dog and listens to everything you tell her. If you look at my original posts on here I was desparate!!! So please just bear with it and I can guarantee that things will improve, especially with all the help and advice of people on here!!! x

A Big Thank You to Suzie, Jo, Adam and Diane for your advise it will be a Massive help. It sounds really sensible and obvious when you put it down to basics lol so i appreciate what your saying, we av had Rocky from a baby and would never think of letting him go (ppl wouldn't let their children go from them because of bad behaviour?) we love him so much but he has caused us a little stress and this will help. I have to hold my hand up because i'm guilty of letting him get away with 'murder' coz i love him so much i'm poor (too soft) to be strict, but i know its my downfall as hes hard on the lead too, he pulls alot and must be the weight of an average Rottweiller and hes only 10 months old. Thank you all again xx spinner smile

How are they with other dogs? we regularly meet up for walks if you ever fancy joining us.
We put posts on here and leave it open for anyone to come and join us

You could try a Gentle leader with him or a canny collar, members on here have had results with both

Hi Jo, they are both fine with other dogs. We went into jollies and the selection we were shown and tried didn't fit very well but they have a harness which we are going to try which doubles up as an in-car safety harness and is padded. I think it will take time because he is full of energy and he gets excited as he his only a baby spinner smile

Thats the Ezy dog harness I assume. I have used them for a long time and they are great.
I do recall there being a harness with a clip ring on the front as well as the back, I think it may be from dog games. Someone else may know as I have not used them but I know others have
