ooh, I like your suggestion of crating him while I get ready. I will most definately be trying that.

And yes, it is incredibly frustrating. x.X I can't tell you how many arguments we've gotten into over this. She thinks crating a dog is cruel - even after I explain to her that it simply means it's 'quiet time' for him, and it helps him to relax. It's not like he has a tiny crate for him to squeeze into. He had room to stand up and turn around in it.

I feel like maybe if I can get him to focus better on me, it will help a lot.
I have trained him to sit and look at me on command, however once he starts getting over excited, this command goes out the window.
