Preventing Your Dog From Jumping Up on People

Image result for Preventing Your Dog From Jumping Up on People

Dogs that jump up on people were most likely encouraged to do this while they were puppies. This isn’t so much fun now that your dog is fully grown. Your dog can knock people over and the threat of being jumped on can be annoying. Start by turning around quickly whenever your dog tries to jump up on you so he falls to the ground. When all four feet are on the ground, give your dog a food treat and lots of praise. Encourage all family members and friends to follow the same routine so your dog gets the message that jumping up on people is not allowed. Don’t punish or yell at your dog while he is learning so this doesn’t work anyway. Next anticipate when your dog will jump up and insist he sits at your side so he can’t jump up.
