I have a wonderful 8 month old labradoodle puppy (Payton) who is extremely smart and well behaved...that is until we get around new people or dogs. Payton LOVES them and gets so excited that he cannot listen to me! HELP! He jumps on people, excessively pulls at the collar/leash, and lurches forward to go see other dogs. At 65lbs, this scares them. :shock: I've tried everything including sit stay, no, off, ect. and he does great until we're in public...and then he doesn't pay attention to me. I know it sounds cruel, but I'm thinking that a week with a pinch collar would cure our problem. Does anyone have any experience with this problem? Is a pinch collar cruel? Any other ideas? HELP!
