We need help with our 6 1/2 month old puppy jumping up on others. She's good with us when we say "no jump" but visitors, forget it. Also, how can we get her to come back to us on command when she's off leash? A fart in the wind and she's gone. Thanks for your help, Candace
Cute puppy. Your post made me laugh. Our black lab is 6 months as well and if he sees so much as a leave blowing in the wind he is gone!! He also jumps up with excitment sometimes. I usually anticipate it and make sure he is sitting down before greeting visitors.Originally Posted by Candace
Or teach your puppy to run and get a toy when visitors arrive, they are so much more interested in getting the toy and praise etc they are less likely to jump. And if a dog tries to give you a toy they do usually sit and put their head up with the toy for you to take - they can't jump when they do that.
As for recall - from reading alot of other posts on here good, solid recall takes ALOT of time and patience. If you want to let your puppy off lead and train off leash recall place your puppy on a long long lead so you can draw it back in and praise/treat each time you do while saying "good come"
