She just wont stop jumping on me...
I am now leaving Chevelle in her newly fenced yard, it's about 1/4 acre and she really loves it out there but she does not like that I leave her at home. When I return, which is Normally between 5 and 7 hours, she is in a blind panic, jumping all over me, whining, puppy biting, scratching down my sides and back. I know that popular training belief is to turn your back, cross your arms and ignore... but she is a 7 month old, 60 pound ball of teeth and claws and that is just not practical! Today I tried just holding her by her collar to prevent the jumping but she is Strong, and caught me right in the face with her claws. This goes on for 10-90 seconds, depending on how long I have been gone. The only thing I have found that helps is if I open the back door and immediately throw a ball and she will sometimes go into play mode and not attack me mode... but this only works if I can beat her to the door. Otherwise she is bounding through it and the jumping/biting/ freaking out commences.

Any advice? After her panic is over, she is back to being just sweet as can be...

Dex used to bombard my daughter when she got home. What worked for her was to keep a few dry treats on her or outside in a container and as soon as she entered the house she would tell him to sit and give him a treat. Then tell him to play dead or lie down for another treat. Eventually he got it and stopped jumping on her. You could probably do the same with a ball or toy if your dog is toy motivated.
