When a dog jumps on people or other pets, this can be a very dangerous situation. There are many reasons that your dog may jump. However, if you don’t know how to correct this behavior, it can quickly turn into a serious problem. This can even result in criminal charges and fines. Here, I will share with you some great tips to stop this problem before it gets out of hand.
If you have a dog that jumps on visitors, it is important to quickly break the pattern by redirecting the animal to another room. This behavior can typically be noticed when your dog jumps on someone or an object in the room. The best way to stop jumping is to quickly divert your dog’s attention. Try doing this by placing another object, another person or a toy in another room. The next time your pet jumps on someone or something, immediately take it to the object to distract him from jumping on you.
When your dog jumps on guests, greet them gently in a calm manner. Don’t become overly excited to get their attention immediately. Simply move close to the guest and place your hand gently on their chest or shoulder, to show you’re concerned with their safety. You should also introduce yourself and show them your name. This technique works great if the jump was caused by an unexpected visitor or gate keeper.
When your dog is excited and jumps on visitors, greet them again using a firm “no” command. It is also important to make sure you are in a familiar and friendly behavior before you introduce yourself and the guests. This will help you avoid the behavior in the future.
If your dog is jumping due to an unexpected gate keeper, remove them from the property immediately and try to explain the situation to the dog. Once they calm down, use your verbal cues to escort them back to the dog house. This is a useful technique if you find that they are jumping on children, another pet or on you when you are trying to train them not to jump on people.
One last tip is that if your dog keeps jumping even after you tell them “no,” start praising them when they follow your command. This way, they’ll think they did the right thing. Praise when they do things the right way makes them want to keep doing those things. If your dog gets excited when another dog or person comes onto the property, start moving closer to them until they get anxious enough to jump. If you only praise when they jump on you when you are close, then they will not understand that the excitement stops when you go far away.
Dog jumping can be quite difficult to treat. However, there are several techniques that I have found that help. When training dogs, pay attention to the behavior and ignore it if it continues. Also, make sure that you do not reward your pet for uncontrollable jumping behavior. Finally, treat your dog’s behavior with praise and treats as soon as they stop jumping on you or other things when excited.
You must have seen your dogs jump when excited at different times when visiting home. If this has become a problem for you and other family members, it is very important that you find a way to stop your dog from jumping so much. Keep in mind that dogs that jump often have been raised to jump when excited. I have found that if you start training them when they are young, they will not only be well behaved but also be less likely to jump on everyone, especially if they are in the company of another dog or person. Keep in mind that it is very important for your dog’s safety.
