Hi, it's me again...the new Cardigan owner! Our five month old male pup is continuing to be a challenge in some unexpected and problematic ways. Recently, as he has gotten bigger and stronger and really good at catching tennis balls, he has also begun a VERY annoying habit of jumping up on me for attention and biting at my clothes. I know all about ignoring, arms crossed over chest, and looking up to ignore. But it is hard to that when he is after my clothes. I find myself needing to grab him from the back of his collar and pull him down....saying "OFF" and then "Good boy." But a second later he is on me again...probably figuring my defense was an invitation to play. This happens especially in the mornings when I am trying to get ready to leave for work...I think he knows that! Sad to say, I have come to dread the mornings...or whenever he starts that jumping/biting. Yes, he has had Puppy Obedience classes...but we still have lots of work to do on Stay, Down, etc. And I have a call into a local trainer to help me one on one with him in our home...but she has had to delay getting started for other personal reasons. We don't live close enough to any other trainers for me to have other options. And Petsmart (for more group or puppy classes) is about an hour away. Too far. I have just begun reading _Other End of the Leash_ - great book. Any suggestions? I fear our pup is getting some ingrained bad habits - building upon his fearless and dominant temperament - that may be next to impossible to "break." I hope I am wrong. I would be heartbroken..... P.S. Of course, right now as I type this he is lying placidly down in the living room looking up at me with "love" in his eyes.
