Ask Victoria – Mary Johnson

Dear Victoria,

I have a pit bull that’s a year and 3 months. He’s a good dog, but have only one problem. When he hears the door bell he gets very hyper, and when a guest comes over he jumps them at the door. He jumps on them and is all over them. How can I stop this behavior? I’ve tried the wait command and it’s not being affective. Please help.

    Dear Victoria,
    I have three dogs, Gidget, Bandit, and Tyson. They are really sweet dogs........if you know them. They attack other dogs or they make it seem like they want to but sometimes they just want to sniff them. But they also try to attack the gardeners, the pool man, and people they don't know. We try to get them to calm down,but they won't. I am trying to get on your show, but I don't know how. HELP!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. I really admire you and your work with dogs.
