We got a 1 yr old mal a week ago. He was scared at first & kept barking at everyone but he's more trusting now. In fact, he seems downright ecstatic whenever he first sees me now, so much that he greets me by jumping up on me. How do I change this bad behavior?

This worked for me with an affectionate German Shepherd. As your dog prepares to jump up, bend your leg and raise your knee so that his momentum makes his chest thump into your knee while saying "down" or "no". If your dog is anything like mine, it won't take long for him to get the idea, especially if you praise him for not jumping after he catches on.
