Pawing, Barking, Jumping, Nipping for Attention!

My bully breed is about a year and a half now. It seems he goes through these stages were he acts out in these bratty behaviors and for a few weeks, then the next few weeks he seems to be able to settle more in the house and act appropriately. I give him plenty of physical and mental excersise, bring him to obedience and sport classes and stay consistent on training. Sometimes I feel I am doing everything right though and still he has these episodes that drive me insane!

I've hardly ever heard this dog bark, but lately when he wants attention, he will bark or paw at me. I usually ignore/turn my back (I try not to engage, say off/push him down as I feel any type of verbal/physical is giving him attention back). Sometimes he will persist if he gets really excited and jumps and sometimes mouth (but with a soft mouth) at me. It's normally happens in the evening when I come home at work. I try to bring him out for a little, flirt pole or walk and then have him go to his mat while I cook dinner, get settled, etc. But lately he still wants to go, go, go. If he gets really annoying I'll put behind our gate with a chew so he can relax...but just trying to see if there's a better way to try and train out this behavior rather than manage it?

The other thing he does more now is bother my other dog (he used to bother the crap out of him as a younger puppy, thank god it's gotten better) for the most part they play together and co-exist well. But recently he's been sniffing him a lot, pawing at him and just plain pestering.

Do you think it's just an adolescence thing? I've heard dogs go through stages where all their training needs to be reinforced?

Pens it just being the typical pup. I'd give him a firm poke correction for the barking at you and jumping etc behavior.
Just watch him around your other dog in case it turns into aggression. He sounds like he just wants to play though to me!

Thanks! Yea he definitely wants to play just in a rude way! I'll keep at it, like I said he seems to go through these learning curves where for a few weeks he's can be an angel, then he's like "nope false alarm, gotcha!" lol and he starts those annoying behaviors I described again.

I keep hearing people say by the time their 2-3 years old they usually mature and are much easier at settling in the house - I hope so

Try giving him some extra exercise and see if maybe he just has more ebergy, instead of bothering the other dog. Or some training and tricks to teach him to get his mind working, which also can tire them out. Nose work, hide and seek, those kind of mind games if more exercise is not an option.
