How to Stop Your Dog From Jumping on Guests

December 22nd, 2011 Pets

It always begins innocently enough - you bring your new puppy home and before long he's jumping up on his hind legs whenever you walk into the room. However, someday that puppy is going to grow into a full-sized dog, and his jumping can become an annoying habit, if not downright dangerous. It can also be embarrassing when it happens to any guests you might have over.

Dogs jump on people for a few reasons - first, it could just be because they're happy to see you. It's also a means of seeking attention, especially if you've responded positively in the past to the behavior.

The solution? It all comes down to not rewarding the bad behavior. In fact, you don't want to acknowledge the dog at all when he jumps up. When you see him preparing to leap, turn your body away. Also avoid making eye contact during this time - he might soon learn that jumping leads to being ignored. Once he settles down, lavish him with praise and his favorite treats.

Another option is to give your dog something else to do - for instance, when he jumps up, immediately instruct him to sit - he may learn to sit patiently whenever someone walks in. This is a great way for you to show off how obedient your pooch is to your visitors as well!

It's important that you start this training as soon as possible - the older the dog gets, the more difficult it might be to train him out of his bad behavior. You may be able to teach an old dog new tricks, but it's a long road to do so!
