Question:

: I don't even know how to describe this behaviour. So I'm going to do the best that I can. Sometimes when I give my Jack a treat, he'll follow me around the house with it in his mouth until I sit down. When I sit down he wants to climb me like a mountain. He not trying to mount me..Just climb me..Say I'm on the couch he'll sit on the back of the couch and try to jump on my head (with his treat sill in his mouth). He won't leave you alone until you let him climb you, sometimes he'll sit on the back of the couch and try to climb on my shoulders.So I'll move and he'll follow. I try standing up until he eats his treat, but then he'll stand on my feet and jump at me. What Is my Jack doing?? I don't understand this moutain Jack thing he's doing.

: Any help you could give me

Hi Tiffany,

I'm wondering what kind of treat. If it's a rawhide bone etc (instead of small edible snack) that may be your problem.

My guess is he's just trying to get your attention. Either put the treat away if it's annoying to you or have a good time by throwing the treat for your Jack to fetch. He wants to play :)

Best,
Judy
