My 10 month old dog cant get rid of aggression

by Sasha

I have a almost 10month old staffy/ pit cross male. He is now my 3rd dog of the same breeds but by far is the naughtiest.
Since puppy he gets exercise and goes to school every week and is super smart and obedient (with treats!) we love him alot.
Since a puppy he’s exherted dominance, e.g not listening, constantly wanting to sit on me and jumping to higher positions in the house e.g chairs/beds. We do not allow him to do this anymore.
He has been neutered about 1 month ago.
Recently it seems as if i have to put him in time out atleast more than 5 times a day. He randomly takes things and destroys them (which is not the issue) but then i tell him a firm “No” or “leave it” and repeat this and he growls and jumps to bit my arms/ clothes/ feet!!! This doesnt stop and i ignore him and try to exit the room so he is alone... then again it starts about 30mins to 1hour later. I have tried positive training, exercising him more, putting him in time out, ignoring him but he is getting bigger and stronger and it hurts!!
He is stubborn in the sense that if there is another dog he will not come back to me on recall, but in school he does. On walks his tail is always up! If he hears any noises in the house he barks and barks. He isnt possesive of toys and food but is if he has a tasty treat.
Basically his bites hurt alot, he bites everyone in the household and i cant seem to ‘train’ him out of it. Even telling him off, he will run under the table and then bark at whoever is telling him off and when we go to touch him to move him into time outhe will mouth our arms and will literally try to wrestle.
I justdont understand as this is our 3rd dog of the same breed (he is the only dog in the house)
Please help!

Nothing In Life Is Free

Nothing In Life Is Free

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.

All the best,
