Wild barking and jumping during walks
My pup is 10 months old and I've been taking him on daily walks since he was 16 weeks. He gets really excited every time he sees a cyclist or a runner and starts jumping up on me and barking uncontrollably until the other person is out of sight. I thought this behavior might improve over time but it's actually become more extreme, to the point where he starts barking when he even sees another person walking. He's not aggressive; it seems like he just wants to play, however it's becoming really difficult to go on walks. I've been using a Sprenger pinch collar we got in an obedience course, however he doesn't seem to respond to it. Has anyone else seen similar behavior, and if so how did you approach this?
