Jumping Dog

Is your dog a jumping dog? Are you neighbors afraid of your dog because it jumps? Are you tired of being clawed and scratched? If so, don’t worry. Most people face this problem with their dogs. I’m here to help show you how to train dogs and put an end to your dog’s jumping behavior. I love all dogs and puppies, but I won’t lie; I don’t like being jumped on. It hurts and I can’t even get through the door.



Do you have a serious jumping problem? If you do, you need to address it as soon as possible. It will only get worse over time. Your dog can turn people away or even seriously hurt someone. Ultimately, no one wants to be around a jumping dog, no matter how cute or nice he/she is.

The first thing to do is to stop people from provoking your dog to jump.

Tell your guests that you have to stop jumping dog problems. Some people encourage dogs to jump because it looks cute, and a jumping puppy looks even cuter. This is when the most damage is done, because they are brought up to do it and learn that the behavior is okay.

Whenever someone new comes into the house, tell your dog/puppy to sit. By doing so, your dog/puppy will relax and will be less likely to jump. If your dog does jump, you should gently brush them down and say the word “down.”

Another way to overcome dog jumping problems is for you or your guests to bend down to meet the dog at his level when entering. This will make them not have to come to you and give them the attention they really want.

Dogs jump when they are excited, so try to root out all the things that might be exciting him/her. Teaching your dog to control her excitement is an important part of dog obedience training. You should not get rid of all of these exciting toys and treats and people, but instead should try to teach your dog another way to show or relieve excitement. This will help a lot with your jumping dog problem.

The goal is not to have your puppy become bored and inactive, but to make them more excited and give them a different outlet than by jumping. Try to do whatever gentle ways you must, without getting your dog to become a bored and inactive puppy.

If your dog is still a jumping dog, don’t get discouraged. It can take a lot of practice to get your dog to greet people politely. Remember not to get mad or angry with your dog when they jump. Dogs in general are not annoying, so I’m not going to say a jumping dog is annoying. However, jumping can cause stress and other annoyances, and training a dog not to jump can be very frustrating. Keep practicing and the results will follow.

I hope these tips help you to make your dog a peaceful dog that doesn’t jump. Good luck with your dog(s) and their jumping problems.
