And there lies the foundation of your problem. Your pup is wired. It needs more exercise. Jumping on you and biting at your hands is a behavior that should never be allowed. But in order to fix the behavior, you need to help your pup succeed. You need to up his exercise...big time. That won't fix your problem, but it will help him focus on which ever training technique you choose.

Picture giving a child Redbull and Pixie Sticks before you send them off to bed. Sleep is the last thing that child will do.
