Once of the challenges with Max is his amazing capacity to jump and kiss your nose, hop a fence, latch onto your hair and clean your scalp (seriously). If it is done on-command, CL has no problem with the behavior. If it's done without the "okay" from She Who Must Be Obeyed? Not good. Here's what usually happens:
Max: "I love you, I love you, I love you, you are the BEST HUMAN EVER."
Every time Max starts to jump, Master Nick turns his back and ignores him. Once Max calms down, Master Nick turns around and gives the jumpin' Jack-A-Poo positive reinforcement (aka LOVE) for the calm and gentle behavior.
