WE HAVE A 6 MON. OLD MALE NEWFOUNDLAND. HE IS GOOD EXCEPT HE BITES OUR ANKLES, JUMPS ON US AND LIKES TO JUMP UP TO THE COUNTERS. ANYBODY HAVE ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO BREAK HIM OF THESE BAD HABITS?

Well, when your newfoundland jumps on you turn around and ignore him. Don't ever yell. Because when you yell they think that your "barking" back or they get scared. It's different with every dog. But for him jumping on the counter say "NO" in a stern voice. But again, don't yell. And since your Newfy is just 6 months old, he will probably grow out of this bad behavior.

you can hold up both hand, and say no when he jumps on you. they get the idea pretty quick. you have to be consistent just as you do with children. one time it cannot be ok and another not. dont confuse. all persons have to be involved in dicipline newfoundlands are the best!!!!
