I've been told by Gary that the jumping is what they call a Wheaten welcome.Something to do with this being their way of greeting people.
Just wanted to comment on this.
My suggestion to you is,make sure this pup has some time to him/herself.Your off for the summer,spend time with this pup,then all of a sudden it's back to school.Then pup doesn't have you around.Sometimes this is how seperation anxiety happens.And it won't matter that you have Stanley.It will be the human contact that the pup will crave.....Hope that made sense.
It makes perfect sense! It's a good point too. I'll be sure to leave him alone enough when he's learning so that he'll get used to it. Separation anxiety is definitely something I'm going to have to work to avoid. But on the good side, when school does start, all my classes fall so that I'm never gone an entire day at once.
