I am looking for some advice...we have a 11month golden named Jake. I love him to pieces and he is such a well-behaved dog EXCEPT when I take him out to play in our yard after a few minutes of playing he starts jumping on me and biting. I have used the word "no" with him, kneed him, put him in a timeout, and left him outside to calm down. It is starting to upset me because I enjoy bringing him outside and playing with him daily but now it is starting to be a chore
. Here are a few of my thoughts....
1-I am the primary caregiver for Jake. I am the one that takes him outside to play (my boyfriend doesn't take him out much) and I feel that it is overload sometimes for Jake (Jake thinks I have mommy all too myself and gets really excited) and that leads to the behavior.
-Jake doesn't do this behavior when we are in other ppl yards or anywhere but our yard. I am not sure why this is?
-Jake will do this behavior for a month and then stop for two months but then the behavior starts again.
-My boyfriend thinks I am not stern with him and that is why he does it. I think he gets too excited when he sees me and that leads to the behavior.
-I think that if my boyfriend takes him out to play during the day then he won't have so much energy when I come home from work.
-Will Jake grow out of it?
As you can see this behavior has been bothering me and I am hoping someone can shine some light onto this situation. I love taking Jake outside and exercising him and I am frustrated that we always have to cut our playtime short b/c of his behavior....PLEASE HELP!!!!
