Our 8 month old lab mix Tom gets really excited sometimes when he's running around outside and he'll jump up at us and bite at our shoes and ankles. We are working on the jumping, and so far it is going well, but we aren't sure what to do about the biting at the feet. We are using the turn around and ignore method, which makes him stop jumping right away, but then he comes over and knaws on our feet. Any suggestions as how to get him to stop? He has already ruined a pair of boots.

It's not that kind of biting; he's not chewing. It's more like he's playing like he would play with another dog. He thinks we are playing back whenever we try to make him stop, cause we do things like shove him away. We now realize that the shoving is only intesifying his desire to play. We just don't know what we should be doing to make him stop.
