Blue, though often invited up to jump (especially by men), will only jump on me. Teeny is a "high flyer" and loves to jump, but is typically good about not jumping on guests (unless she thinks they're assholes . . . I love her paws-up-in-your-face guard!). Neither will claw you while jumping. And really they only do it when invited (and again, for Blue he won't even always do it when invited for me), or when I first get home. I love the exuberant greeting

"But he loves you!" Is all my friend has to say. Grrr.

If someone allows their dog to jump on me I let it slide once and ask the owner to control their dog. The second time the dog gets a hard knee right in the sternum, with no apology. I am not your dog's jungle gym. It sounds like your manager isn't respecting your boundaries. If he wants you to avoid correcting the dog but allows the dog to continue to jumping on you by failing to control his animal, he's just being an inconsiderate asshole.
