Preventing Your Dog From Jumping up on People

dog-jumping

Dogs that jump up on people do so because they were most likely encouraged to jump up while they were puppies. However, this isn’t fun now that your dog is all grown up. Deter your dog from jumping up on people and then give him something else to do that is more appropriate. Whenever your dog starts to jump up on you, turn around quickly so he falls to the floor. When all four feet are on the ground, give your dog a treat and praise him. Encourage other family members and friends to do the same. Anticipate when your dog will jump up and insist that he sit by you. If he is sitting by you, he can’t be jumping up. Reward him when he can be around people without jumping up. Do not yell at your dog or punish him while he is learning. Learn more from your Park County, CO veterinary clinic.
