    If dog jumps at my back, I sometimes stick one of my feet backwards, ie bend knee at right angles, makes the jump a little less comfortable. But essentially just keep turning your back and wait until he stops, jumping takes a fair bit of effort so should tire out, or just lose interest, and the second he stops, turn and praise him. If he jumps again, he gets your butt and no attention until he stops. It's the repeating over and over that helps him learn that his actions have undesirable consequences. He wants your attention, so withhold until he behaves how you want.

    On a lighter note B&J, good results can come from setting banjo up, so to speak.
    Put yourselves in a situation where he would normally mouth you. Rub some vicks vaporub or tabasco sauce on your arms ( or wherever)

    Sounds rediculous, I know, but hey, I have seen it work rather well.

    thank you so much for all your concern and reply guys
    pleased to note that we went home with a great idea of exactly what to do..
    And we were pleasently suprised! Banjo in just one night has started sitting when we tell him to. I firmed my 'no' with all my might when he was biting me and stood tall with my arms crossed and he barks a bit but then backed off and went and played with his toys.
    I started implementing no banjo on couch or bed and he acted like he was in troubl! sulking away with his ears down.. I got lonely on the bed so me and my partner discussed that he wouldnt be allowed on the bed unless we were on there and invited him up only. still no to the couch and when we arent on the bed. Only cause he blew us away with how good he was being already. If this causes a problem with his training then we will stop, but for now we would like to try and make it work.
    After everything i had read and all the tidbits this post and your helpful summary of advice has made it all so plainly clear.
    Again thankyou so much.
    I think Banjo is going to be just fine :-D

    Great news!

    You and your partner obviously love Banjo, so you'll get through it all and end with a great dog, I'm sure.
