    Is Your Dog Jumping?

    No More Jumping


    If your puppy is trying to jump on everybody then you will have to be firm or be prepared to face this behavior for the entirety of the dog’s life. Puppies must be taught what they are free to do and what they are not. 


    You must be consistent with training when teaching your puppy he shouldn’t be allowed to jump on you or sit in your lap. The dog will not be able to distinguish between nice clothes and scruffy gear so if you do not want your dog to jump up sometimes you must teach him never to do so. 

     

    How to Stop Your Dog Jumping Up?


    If your dog already jumps up you can make him break the habit. It will not be easy but it is perfectly doable. When the dog is ready to jump up, you have to stand on one leg safely and the other knee should be bent in front of you; this will prevent your dog from touching you fully. The dog’s chest will strike your knee, which is quite inconvenient for him. It is also worth backing this action with a command such as “no” or “down”. If your dog continues to try jumping, hold your legs a bit stronger so you can keep the dog away, but push it a little bit with your knee. This way he will soon stop jumping because of these unpleasant effects. 


    If someone comes to the family who can not be strong enough to stop the dog jumping then do not leave the puppy unattended or you can hold or shut it in. Do not give up with training; if you are persistent the dog will learn not to jump.
