Teaching Your Dog To Greet People Without Jumping
The process of teaching your dog to greet people calmly starts at home.
Week 2 of my Peaceable Paws Good Manners class, I ask the question, How many of your dogs jump up on people? Generally at least 80 percent of the dog owners in class raise their hands. Why do they jump up? I ask. I usually get at least one incorrect answer of Dominance! but most of my students realize their dogs jump up for attention. And because much of the time the behavior is successful, its a challenging one to extinguish.
