We adopted Tony (dog in picture) from a local shelter over a year ago. We have had very little luck improving his behavior in any category. If he's loose in the house more than 5 minutes, supervised or unsupervised, he's peeing on the walls or pooping on the floor even if he's just come and and done all of his business outside. He is 120% hyper at all times and in his mind he must be in your face or jumping on you trying to get there.
He can't go on a leash because he has slipped every collar and harness we've put on him including choke chains and probably because of past abuse he is fear aggressive to other people and animals. We weren't told of this when we adopted him and it didn't come out until he bonded with us. I am at a loss. If you offer him treats, he'll take it once or twice and then he's not interested anymore. Praise just means he needs to lick your face off. For the jumping we've looked for rain, we've kneed him, we've told him no - all things that have worked with prior dogs - and absolutely no change. He knows he's supposed to potty outside and absolutely won't go in his crate. He was about 2 years old when he was fixed - after we adopted him. I'm just not sure where to go from here.
I've read other posts that say there is SOMETHING that motivates him, but after about a year and a half the only thing I've seen him respond to is whatever his little doggy brain tells him is a good idea.
It's frustrating because this isn't my first dog. I'm 50 and have had dogs since I was a toddler. I just never have had one that didn't care if I was happy with them.
