I have a dog that would not hurt a flea but is how should I put it "socially unacceptable". We have been banned from the dog park, politely asked not to come back to training class unless it is a one on one class. He just gets so excited when around people he jumps on them, licks them to death and no matter what I have done I cannot break him of this. There is only one time a year that he behaves and that is halloween. I will let him sit on the porch with me to pass out candy and he knows if he misbehaves he has to go inside. He sits on the porch next to me and does not move....behaving like the perfect dog. Why can I get him to behave one night of the year and all 364 days of a year he is socially unacceptable!
I would love to be able to take this dog everywhere with me but cannot with his behavior. So if anyone has any ideas I would like to hear them. I know he is capable because its been proven for three years straight there is one night a year he behaves.
