We have a 7 month old Labrador who has just come to live with us from a rescue home. He is a great dog but has the bad habit of jumping up on the patio doors when he wants to come in. He has already torn down the screen door by jumping up at it, and is now jumping up at the doors. We have tried ignoring him as well as scolding him. How can we stop him jumping?

Watch carefully when your dog is outside and when he starts to jump up on the screen door, tell him "NO" in a firm voice. Then let him in. After a while, he should get the hint that he needs to let you know some other way (other than jumping on the door) that he wants in. My own Labrador learned to simply "knock" or scratch at the door to be let in and yours can too. (You might want to take down the screen door while your dog is in training.)

And keep in mind, there will be times you will doubt your sanity in getting a Lab, but once they're trained, they are the greatest dogs in the world!
