Keeping Your Dog from Jumping Up on People


Many dogs that jump up on people were encouraged to do so while they were puppies. However, it’s not so much fun now that your dog is fully grown and can be especially annoying. You will need to deter your dog from jumping up and give him something more appropriate to do. Whenever your dog starts to jump up on you, turn around quickly so he falls to the ground. Do this as often as needed without fuss. When all feet are on the ground, reward your dog with a food treat and lots of praise. Encourage other family members and guests to follow this same routine. Soon your dog will realize that jumping up on people is not appropriate. Try to anticipate when your dog may want to jump up and insist that he sit by you till the urge passes.
