You need to work with training him. The loose leash walking video Fawkese1 posted is great. Also go to youtube and search "kikopups" she has great advice on how to train not to jump as well as all the basic commands.

Skinny, maybe you can briefly tell folks what your dog's routine is for a day. There may be hints of why he is so excited.
I think its pretty natural for a dog to be super happy to see you if he's been chained away from you, and jumping up is a natural way to express that happiness. You can train him to be more polite though.
There might be some simple changes you could make in his life that would reduce his level of pent up energy, that he has when he sees you. And that might make the training go easier.
Just a thought...

My dog jumps a little but I have trained her to stay on all four paws for the most part. Is your dog chained at all times? If your dog is never off the chain except to go on a walk.... well if I was the dog I would be jumping too. I would be so excited to see you (in hopes I could get off the chain) I wouldn't be able to stand it.

thankyou everyone!
Scottie's routine for the day is kind of boring, because I keep him at my Grandfathers house. He spends most of his ime on the chain but he is let off for a walk (on the leash) when I am down at Pop's house.he is a kelpie so he is bred to be a sheep dog. I know that the pent up energy and exitement is because he is soo happy to see me, but what can i do because from 6:00 to 4:00+ i am at school.
I will try everyone's suggestions...
thankyou once again...skinny

So glad you are willing to work on this!!!

I agree with everyone. It sounds like Scottie needs more exercise and mental stimulation.
Take him on longer walks and play more with him in the yard. Flirt poles are fabulous toys that can tire dogs out really quickly. Plus you can make your own for $15-$20!

For mental stimulation I would start out with some treat dispensing toys like kongs, tug-a-jug, custer cubes, etc. There are so many good ones available now. You can also clicker train, train basic commands (sit, down, stay, etc) or even play some tracking games (http://www.dogforum.com/dog-training...tracking-4508/). I play some of the beginner games here with my dogs and the LOVE it. And like said by other's Kikopups youtube videos are really good how to's for training!

With more exercise and mental stimulation I really think you will see an improvement.

You def. need to play with him more and this may not be an option for you but if your grandpa would build a fence so your dog would be off the chain I'm sure that would make a world of difference! Not to be mean, I'm not out to make enemys on the forum but dogs aren't really supposed to be on chains. I would probably give my dog to a friendly home like a family member's I could go see her at (even though it would break my heart in two) before I'd put her on a chain to live out her life. Big dogs, espec. need to be off chain. Don't be mad..... I'm just saying.... IF you can get a fence out where your grandpa lives do so.

do not be afraid to tell the truth. I will do more research about flirt poles...
