he is better ,actually. last sunday we took him to a park in a very "green" area of town and walked the circuit of the park with him , it was really long and he's getting fat so he was tired quickly. but he really enjoyed it, and tried to chase the ducks at the lake the whole time. yesterday I visited him again and his jumping up/mouthing is gettin easier to handle. I can sense when he's about to do it now , and I'm taking steps to prevent it. I jog with him , but when he has a toy in his mouth , so he can't bite. and when I see him looking at me like he's about to jump up , I stop and ignore him until he calms down and then we continue. He's also learning that when in doubt , sit. that helps a lot too. He'll mouth at me and I'll yelp and stand still and he doesn't know what else to do , so he'll sit , since he knows that's one guaranteed action that'll earn him a treat. He's the prettiest dog at the shelter and lots of people are getting interested in him. but I don't think the averafge joe can handle him. He's got some issues and he's young and energetic ,he needs someone who understands that and can work with it.
