Help with jumping

Hi,

I've screwed up very badly and I need help. I was careless in how I fed Slash and Nightmare and now they snatch food ( as in bloody fingers on occasion) and will jump up to get to food and will yank it out of my hands. Not good when they are that big. How do I get this under control again? Like I said, I've screwed this up very badly and need to put it right.

THanks,

Jelpy

My furs are not in storage, nor draped across the bed. They're peering out the kennel door just waiting to be fed.

I was going to suggest turn your back but since they are snatching food, I think Slash and Nightmare have made this into a game. So for now I would feed them in their crates. I would also put them in their crates when I am eating or I would use a gate. Then I would proceed to slowly work on table manners - the dogs would have to be on downstay while I am eating. It would help to work with one dog at a time, and have the dog on a leash - that way I could sit on the leash and also step on it to enforce the downstay.
