Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / Re: New here question about a newf

Thanks for your advice. We do make him sit before alot of things. He does that well but if company comes he does not listen. I am hoping its cause he's a puppy. I took him out with the gentle halter and I was actually surprised he did as good as he did. I have never had such a stubborn dog. We are seeing little changes. It's just taking along time to get things through his thick head.

Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / New here question about a newf

He is 1 year old now, got him around 8-8/12 weeks. He was sick for a week but recovered. He is a very active dog and stubborn. I have tried alot of traing methods ,read books, videos. The main problem is when he gets happy he jumps, leaps at you and nips. He also runs toward you to run into you. My husband takes him for a walk everyday and when he turns around to start back Jonah starts leaping biting etc.
He is actually pretty good in alot of other areas. I am having trouble getting close to him. My husband is bonding with him and Jonah loves him.  I just got a gentle leader and tried it today. He was actually doing ok then it broke. The company is sending us a new one. Has anyone had success with them? Jonah is crszy about people and freaks when he sees them. Needless to say they want nothing to do with him cause he is a pain and big. Sorry this is so long. its frustrating.  rockcreek
