Session 115: How to Stop Jumping
We’re going to go through a protocol to help train your dog (over 7 months old) to stop jumping on you or others.
I’ll address the two key scenarios that come up regarding jumping. One scenario, where you live alone and they jump on you. And then another scenario where someone else comes up to visit and your dog jumps on them because they’re excited to see them!
I’ll provide some setup for those of you who may be new to the podcast; the goal is to help you understand the step-by-step process that talks about the relationship, basic course skills, and then we deal with policies.
Episodes two and three provide some great foundational lessons to understand the relationship between you and your dog.
This is usually a first lesson I provide with in-person training for establishing the relationship between you and your dog – not in the sense of whether or not you care about your dog, but in the fundamental connection that you have. Do they have that type of relationship with you that means they understand the role you two have together in training and obedience? If those foundations need to be established, those two episodes will help.
