Train Your Dog Not to Jump Up on People

Determine why your dog jumps - excitement, attention seeking, lack of training.

Identify Motivation

Teach your dog to sit politely for attention rather than jumping up.

Set Rules  

Say "off" when they jump, then praise and reward when they get back down. 

Use a Cue Word  

Ignore your dog until all four paws are on the floor before engaging.

Withhold Attention   

Role play greetings with family members and ask guests to help train.

Practice Makes Perfect

Keep them leashed when greeting people so you can easily control behavior.

 Keep Dog Leashed

Everyone must reinforce the rules to avoid confusing your dog.

Be Consistent
