I am around 20 year old student and live in college provided hostels. I share room with one person who hates stray dogs while having some at his home.
I started getting familiar with dogs about a 1 year ago. I know almost 15 dogs around the campus and most of them are vaccinated, sterilised and localised in their respective areas. I sometimes take some dogs on walks, without leash, 3-4 in a group.
I would be leaving my college soon.
He is a white, around 2 year old male dog. He is friendly with lots of packs and wanders around the college but is stable in 2 hostels nearby. He is very energetic; not so keen for food as he is for playing, running and walks.
He knew my old room. When I changed it, he sniffed and found out the new one too.
He recently started jumping onto me, in addition to licking my hands. I cannot handle both in public. I used to dodge his mouthing somehow, but pushing him down makes him more aggressive.
Also, when I am on a walk with him and some more dogs, he doesn't stop, like them, in the territory. He follows me to my room, even shows up randomly in the night at my doorstep.
Lastly, I want to reduce his attachment with me as my time to leave comes closer.
I will not be able to take him with me to my home/ job location. Also, I am looking for behavioural training which can help reduce his excitement when he sees me.
