I have an eight month old AussiePoo Austrailian sheepdog/Poodle mix. She knows "down" and "no bite" but totally ignores these commands when excited.
What can I do to stop her from jumping and nipping?

i have the same problem with my border retreiver part border collie part golden retriever who is 7 months old when anyone comes inside the house she starts jumping on them and is very obnoxious ive started to grab her coller and pull her down almost to the ground then i say to her in a very stern voice sophie no no and keep her in that position for as long as it takes the first couple of times i did it she just didnt get it so i stayed in that position with her for awhile shes so hard headed!! she still does it but not as bad and shell look at me before she does it and if im looking right at her she will back down but for the most part i dont think she realizes how big she is she already wieghs 54 pounds and i hope as she grows out of her puupy stage so will her jumping on people.

I have had this problem with my pomeranian. We have it almost solved- she is 4 yr old and we just started to work on this problem. We put her lease- short- not retractable leash- on her when we know someone is coming and hold it down so she cannot jump- she does not get released until she is completely calm and laying down. This takes time but each time she gets it a little quicker. This also helps with other situations when she gets really excited- like getting ready for her walks. I sit back down everytime she barks like crazy or jumps to go- in the beginning it would take 15 min for her to get it-now just a minute or 2- started working on this about 3 weeks ago. I have tried these things in the past and claimed they didn't work- but really it was because I lost patience and did not wait her out- Very Important to wait them out- as long as it takes!
