Barking and Chasing people?
Zeus is almost 8 months old now. Whenever I take him out for walks or anything and a person walks by, he starts to bark aggressively and tries to jump on them. Even when we take him out to do his business, if he sees someone, he will pull me, practically drag me while barking. I know he won't bite or anything, because this has happened many times with my friends and relatives when they first came over. He just ends up jumping on them and barking for a bit, then he either leaves them alone or brings over toys. But its obviously very scary to strangers when a big german shepherd is dragging its owner towards you while barking, and it really hurts when he jumps, but I can't get him to stop.
I've tried diverting his attention towards other things like snacks and toys, but it doesn't work. I've also tried to get him to sit, but he doesn't listen when he's focused on a person and just breaks free and attempts to jump. When my family and I enter the house, we've tried turning our backs and ignoring him, but he'll still jump on us every time.
Any advice on what to do?
