Keeping Your Dog from Jumping Up on People

Most dogs that jump up on people do it because they were encouraged to do it when they were puppies. However, it isn’t so much fun now that your dog is fully grown. You will need to discourage your dog from jumping up and give him something else to do instead. Whenever your dog jumps up on you, turn around quickly so he falls to the ground. Don’t make a fuss. Once all four feet are on the floor, give your dog a food treat and lots of praise. Practice this and encourage other family members and visiting friends to follow this same procedure. Anticipate when your dog may jump up on someone and insist that he sits by you. If your dog is sitting, he can’t be jumping up on people. Never yell at your dog or punish him while he is learning. Contact your Crown Point, IN vet to learn more.
