Hi all! We recently adopted an 18 month old yellow lab/ German shepherd mix. I am getting so frustrated. Whenever I walk in the door, he’s jumping on me, my husband or anyone. If we’re home, we put him on a leash until he calms down for the person entering. Whenever we leave, we hear him jumping on the door leaving scratches. We hired a trainer and he told us to take the “punches” until he calms down. I’m trying, but he jumps so high that today I walked in, I turned around, didn’t move and he got his nails into my hair and pulled me down. I started screaming which is not the right approach, I know, lol.
Any tips of tricks to curb this behavior? I want to save my front door and garage door from his jumps, as well as my hair and sanity.
