You Can Do This in Less Than a Minute
Are you scared of your dog jumping on the little ones and knocking them over? Does the dog have extremely sharp claws that scratch each time they jump on your bare skin? Do they get your clothes muddy or make runs in your pantie hose while you’re just trying to get out the door? If yes, then you will love this surefire way to get them to stop jumping up on you, immediately.
The way to train a dog to stop jumping is very simple. You let them jump up toward you as usual, but you catch their paws in the air. Hold the dog up in this ‘standing’ position until it is clearly uncomfortable for them. Then as you release them down, say in a firm voice, “Down!” If they don’t seem to mind you holding them up in this ‘standing’ position, then you just pinch into their paws until they are a little uncomfortable. They will let you know when they’ve had enough either by putting their snout up to their paws and your hands or by whimpering or both. Each time you let go, just use the ‘down’ command in a firm voice.
This method is so effective, that you can actually train the dog in the first one or two times. I have even trained my friend’s Pug dog on the first visit. My friends were amazed. It was so helpful because he had razor sharp claws that would scratch people’s legs up.
When you notice that he is not jumping up anymore during the first training session, try to lure him up by tapping on your chest for big dogs or your upper legs for smaller dogs. Notice the fear of jumping. But if they give in to temptation, just repeat and reaffirm that jumping will not be tolerated, anymore. Always praise them for the good work by getting them to sit and then giving a good head scratching and maybe even a kiss or two.
Most importantly, all members of the household need to adhere to the new, “No Jumping Policy.” Good luck and keep enjoying your pets.DISCLAIMER: The information on this site is not intended to replace the advice of your own veterinarian or doctor.
