    DefaultMy lab won't stop jumping up on people!

    My almost 1 year old lab continues to jump up on me and guests when we walk in the door. We have tried from early on to turn away when he jumps and only pat him when he sits. I'm not having much luck. He is way too excited to sit down and squirms around like mad.

    Anyone have any better ideas??

    There are lotxs of techniques. All of them require consistency.

    (1) Turn your back and ignore until they settle down.
    (2) Attach leash and step on it such that dog can't jump when someone approaches.
    (3) Gate or crate away from entry and don't let out until the dog calms down.

    agree with the above. I will also add that obedience classes are really really great if you can sign up for one.

    I have the same problem with my 5mo puppy.




    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    We had a couple of days where lots of the kid's friends were at the house. I had the kids line up at the front door, ring the bell, after Bauer sat, I would let them in. If he broke his sit they went out the garage door and got back in line. If he sat, we would talk for a few seconds and then they could greet him and treat him, and then go out the back door and get back in line. We did this over and over on 2 or 3 different occasions, and it sounds a little crazy . . . but it worked. Oh, and I did get the kids pizza afterward.

    When we were in public, I would stand on the leash so he couldn't jump up. I don't know if this really "trains" a behavior, but it sure stops the jumping while your foot is on the leash.

    I have the same problem with the 3 dogs... its so annoying, specially because guests wonīt let me correct the dogs and make them calm down... (they are like "oh I donīt mind if they jump, donīt be harsh... blah blah...). they donīt jump on me... they know better, but with guests its always the same... over excited to have visits.

    Zoe had this problem. Our trainer (behaviorist) said Zoe has 2 options. To sit, or to sit.

    We practiced this constantly and it helped.

    Thanks guys I think I will just keep it up. The main problem is too that when we are out or have people over, they pat him and say hi when he's jumping so it undoes all my hard work!! I'll have to keep the leash on him so I can keep him down when those people come over.

    I'm sure we'll get there. Thanks heaps for the tips :-)
