Default New to the site and love the useful info on here!!!

I am the proud owner of a large male GSD. He is a very good dog and my best friend. I've had him sense he was 8 weeks old and now is a little over a year old. He weighs 118lbs and is growing by the day. He has went through extensive and expensive obedience training but still has a couple flaws I need help on working through. The worst part is anytime I let him out of his kennel all he wants to do is Jump on me. All he is doing is trying to show me love but he's just to big for that non sense. I have done everything I can think of but nothing seems to work. I understand he is hyper and wants to play but that's got to come to an end. My other question for you all is when do you all believe it is safe to give him free roam of the house. He has never had an issue with chewing on things and has never not one time went potty in the house BUT ive never left him alone so Im really not sure how he will react. He's a great dog and couldn't be happier these are just a couple things I had issues and questions about. Any info would be great. Thanks in advance.....

Here is a picture of my big boy Zeus

Im not really sure if that pic posted or how to do it. That would be helpful as well. lol

Beautiful dog,if he has never chewed anything I would start him off in the kitchen with maybe a baby gate when your gone and then give him supervised free time in the house to see how he does.

Do they make tall portable gates than anyone knows of? I have thought on trying this but it would never work. He likes to ride in my truck and can jump into the back of my full size 4x4 truck with the tail gate up. Im not sure a baby gate would hold him back. lol Thanks for the info
