Train a dog to not jump on people
It’s very annoying when you invite guests to your house and your dog jumps all over them. It’s embarrassing.
The sad thing is that I have actually encouraged my dog to act in this way.
It was quite obvious that my guests didn’t want him jumping on them. I would pull him away. But then I would start patting him. I was actually praising him for his bad behavior.
It wasn’t my dog’s fault. It was my fault. He thought it was the right behavior to jump on people since I patted him immediately after he did it.
There are ways to train a dog to not jump on people. It’s not real easy but it can be done. It is best to start this training when your dog is a puppy. But it is not too late to teach your dog the proper behavior, even if you have an older dog.
I saw a very good video on DogStarDaily.com that demonstrates how to train a dog to not jump on people. I think you will find this video very helpful. The title is “Four Feet on the Floor: Jumping up behaviour in puppies and dogs.”
You can see the post here.
Have you ever tried to train a dog to not jump on people? Was it easy or did you have a difficult time? For me, it was difficult. Probably since he was older when I started the training. I wish you the very best.
