Stop Dog Jumping Now: A Short Video from the ASPCA

Try this simple, yet effective method with your jumper. Your homework--report back. Did it work?

I have employed this method with Tanner, who still has the occasional jumpy greeting. It has significantly reduced his jumping; now this behavior is 75% improved. The key, I have found, is in repetition and consistency. Ask family members and regular visitors to give the dog their back, as well. You'll get results much faster if the dog is not rewarded for jumping--EVER!

Let me know how you are doing with this. I can offer other options as well, or you can write to Judy, our ASK THE DOG TRAINER Columnist, for her suggestions. She's a great problem solver. Good luck.

This method works great. I used this method to teach my dog, Maya, not to jump on me. The only problem I have is teaching other people to not give her attention when she jumps on them! While Maya doesn't jump on me, she still jumps on other people. I politely tell them that I am trying to train her and that they should just turn around and politely ignore her, but most people say, "That's all right. I love dogs." or "That's okay. I don't mind."

This is an easy method for training dogs, but it is much harder to train people!!! :)
