Parsons,male now 7 months old. He will sit, lie down, roll over, is house trained and comes back on a whistle outdoor (most of the time) A couple of issues though. 1. Overly excited when `strangers` visit, sort of jumps up and a sort of nip...not an actual bite. 2. When wife goes to bed he runs up to join her but starts to do the puppy nippy bites (again not a real bite) but never just cuddles in although he will sit and be cuddled first thing in the morning. After being in the bedroom for say 10 minutes he comes back downstairs and goes to his cage which we leave open at night now, but the room door is closed. So I suppose both points are similar in trying to stop him getting overly excited. Any ideas?
