When my kids , myself or my partner go out he jumps up and scratches them, and has drawn blood on myself and my partner. I have tried pushing him down and saying no, i have tried the knee in the chest, nothing seems to work, we cant turn around cause he just scratches out backs.
I dread the thought of taking him to the vet!
We have only had him for a month and cant seem to work him out.
Any advice is welcome.
Thanks in advance
It might be asking too much for a 13-month-old dog to change in 30 days. I think that you need to give it a little bit more time and establish some basic training, to change previous behaivor established guidelines you'll get there I'm sure you will
