Most dogs that jump up on people where encouraged to do so when they were puppies. However, this behavior is not so much fun now that your dog is fully grown. You will need to deter this behavior and give your dog something more appropriate to do. Whenever your dog starts to jump up on you, turn around quickly so he falls to the floor. Do this without a fuss so there is no attention toward the inappropriate behavior. When all four feet are on the floor, reward your dog with a food treat and lots of praise. Ask family members and guests to follow the same procedure. Soon your dog will understand that jumping up is inappropriate. Anticipate when your dog may jump up and have him sit by you till the temptation has passed. Never yell at your dog or punish him while he is learning.
