Hi all, I have a 1 1/2 year old female pitty named Rocsi. I don't have any problems with her except for her pit fits and constant jumping. When she gets really excited she likes to run away from me, spin in circles, jump on the couch/bed and sometimes nip at my hands when I try to catch her. This usually happens when I am trying to wrangle her to put her in her room whenever I leave the house and it is extremely frustrating. I understand that I should not chase her because it turns into a game, but I do not know how to stop her from getting so excited and dodging when I REALLY need her to come. She also does this when we are outside playing. I tell everyone that if she was a sports athlete, she would be a football running back because she is SUPER elusive, and loves to keep whatever she has away from you. When she is calm, she completes her commands without any problem (come, sit, stay, lay down, shake, high five, etc). Anyway, any tips for me on how to stop this behavior and the jumping on people? (We have already had an unfortunate freak accident with a stranger because of her jumping and I do not want to have that trouble again.)
Thanks in advance.
