We purchased a Norwegian Elkhound puppy 8 months ago from a breeder. The dog is testing me to the point of putting it down or getting rid of it. The main issues are jumping up on my wife and daughters and digging. Other than that it is a pretty good dog. We tried taking him to a training school but being around other dogs kept him all spun up and was a waste of money. His last hope is getting him neutered in hopes it calms him down. He at least stopped eating his poop from what we can tell but these other two issues are deal breakers for me. Anyone have some input on how to break these habits?
