With a new puppy, we are back to training our dogs not to jump. When a dog weighs 15 pounds, jumping doesn’t seem to be a big deal, but when he grows up to be 70 pounds and is jumping on everyone who comes to the house is a big deal. Mark Tipton shares a tip on how to train your dog not to jump on people…
Dog Training Tip | How to Train Your Dog Not to Jump on People
You can play the magnet game. Take the dogs leash and hook it on the inside of a door’s handle close the door with the leash coming out the bottom of the door. Connect the leash to the dog’s collar. Now your dog can stand with it head up but not jump.
Ask your dog to sit. Now start walking toward your dog, if the dog stands up you back away because the magnetic force the sit was broken. If the dog remains sitting when you get there say good and treat. It takes 21 to 28 day for the dog to form a new habit. The dog learns that sitting instead of jumping get the attention they what.
When outside as a person approaches you will have placed a mark on the leash for you to step on so the dog can’t jump. The dog should be able to stand with its head up but not be able to jump. Again the dog will learn that jumping doesn’t pay.
