Chewing on things and, thankfully, most things are appropriate to chew on!

He knows "sit" relatively well and we're working on other important things like down, loose-leash walking, and leave it.
I decided to foster a dog because I'm a dog training junkie and each dog presents a new challenge. I also wanted to judge whether or not my current dog would be okay with a new family member. Besides, it's a great way to give a dog a second chance at a new life.
**JAGGER HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!** :)
Jagger is a pretty active dog who would do well with an active family. He's going to need more than a walk around the block to be a good member of the household. Due to his breed combination, he's incredibly smart and needs both mental and physical activity. He would do well with a family interested in training tricks and possibly doing some competition in canine sports.
He does well with other dogs and is the type that views them all as potential playmates. He would really love another young, active dog to play with. When confronted with dogs who want nothing to do with him, he is not bothered and stays back.
He appears to be good with kids but I would not recommend him for a household with young children. Older kids who understand not to run around and can stand still if he jumps up would be fine but younger children might be hurt or scared by his behavior.
Jagger is a pretty solid dog though he does have a couple of behavior issues. He is mouthy and, when he gets riled up, he tends to grab at hands and clothing. Jag also tends to jump on people when he's excited (and he has major ups!). I have found that, if this behavior is ignored, it goes away quickly. He's learning to control himself and his mouth with little effort (and a lot of patience) on my part.
He is learning basic behavior with me like waiting at doors, waiting to eat, sit, down, leave it, and loose leash walking.
After a long day of physical and mental exercise, Jagger really enjoys cuddling. He's an absolute love sponge.
