Nothing can uplift the spirits than when your beloved dog runs to you as soon as you get home. What most pet owners don’t appreciate, however, is when their dog jumps too much on them and other people. Not only can their dirty paws ruin perfectly clean clothes, but they can also scare visitors too.
To know how to stop your dog from jumping, first, you should know why they do that.
Contrary to what most people think—that dogs jump as a form of greeting—dogs actually jump on people to seek reward. This reward doesn’t necessarily mean treats. Oftentimes, your dog jumps on you to gain attention. It’s their form of saying “hey, look at me!”.
Here’s how to train your dog to stop jumping up.
Some dogs take longer to learn or unlearn, a behavior as each pup is unique in his own way. Give your best buddy enough time to practice and he’ll be the best-behaved doggie in the neighborhood in no time.
