I have a 4 month old lad/german shepard mix and she is doing great with most training but I can't get her from jumping. I feel I have tried everything. Im 6months pregnant and once she gets bigger (she is already 35lbs) I dont want to be knocked over by her. I also been having a problem when she meets people. We go for walks everyday and sometimes we meet a few people on the way and she just goes nuts. Lately I have noticed she has been wanting to eat dirt. She does go for the rocks and mulch but the dirt is a little weird. We were outside playing catch and she decided she wanted to stop playing and eat dirt. She gets fed ivet and I give her the recommeded amount, she never eats it all gone in one day. We have a big back yard to play in and we also go for walks so Im thinking its not bordom. Does anybody have any good training tips for these that I can try???
