    I will try. So he comes in all mucky paws and face so bad I have to get a flannel and some soapy water as a baby wipe just won't do in this instance (although he doesn't like them much either) as I start to wipe the flannel on his paws he tries to bite it and as a result my hand (I understand that he just sees the flannel) so I take it away and then he launches an attack jumping up all four legs off the ground he nips at my thigh and makes contact, which can be very sore, sometimes it's the calf of the leg or he tries for an arm. He is growling in a very low but nasty way. There is no way to get control of him as if I try to get his collar he can twist in his jump and go for the arm and I am so afraid he will hurt himself badly doing this. It's not possible to get his lead on either as he's in a frenzy about the flannel. I have no idea how to get him indoor ready from his digging other than to wash him.
    This is not going on all day or anything just when it's something he doesn't like and when he gets tired he bites your feet and it can lead to a jumping attack if you don't act quickly.

    So I've made plans to go out for the family dinner in 2 weeks time we will see how it goes. My other worry is when I get back what's going to happen. I will be getting back around his normal bedtime do I take him out for some excercise or just let him out for a while in the house with us? But I know I will want to go to bed fairly soon after getting back.
    When we get home late like that, we let the dogs out for a little bit and then we do our routine and head to bed. Normally they don't give me any trouble...

    it sounds more to me that he is wanting to 'play' .... I would place him on lead before you begin cleaning him so you can control the behavior. also, make him sit and praise him when he stays in place, just a nice pet with 'good boy'.... talk soft and positive tone while cleaning him and keep treats nearby for bribing him. see if that helps at all.... you can also try to get him to lay when cleaning... that might lessen the jumping too

    I will try the lead but it's difficult to hold that and clean him at the same time there isn't anything secure enough to tie him too. It's not at all playful what he does to be honest I can see how it might sound that way but it's not. He has some playful moments and they usually involve butt wiggle and this is far from that. Thank you.

    Ok.... Try standing on the lead to limit his movement. If at all possible can you try to get video of when he is like this,

    Good luck

    Don't think so I would be risking an arm or leg if I tried to video it. But I might try standing on the lead it might work. Thank goodness it's dry here at the moment though so no arguments with him ��
