keep him on a leash at all times when he is not in the crate. sit on the couch with him on a leash at your side on the floor (NEVER LET HIM ON THE COUCH). tell the kids to COMPLETELY ignore him, no eye contact with him either.MAKE HIM SIT, even if that means you have to hold him by the collar and hold his butt down. Every time he tries to get up or cry or bark (whining is fine), give his collar a quick shake and "bark" a short, firm loud NO! If he continues to be out of control for more than 2 or 3 minutes, tell him "BOX" and put him in the crate for 5 minutes. Stick with it! He has to learn that his behavior will not get him the attention he is seeking. If he's 20 months old and already out of control, you need to establish yourself as the unchallengable boss. As he gains more control, let the children briefly (10 seconds or less) talk to and pet him. YOU MUST BE CONSISTENT!! He will learn...I promise. :)

sounds like you have a working shep. there are some breed of shep that need to be worked more than others. this dog needs lots of activity and training. it is going to need a strong owner.
