Love that tip thatchman. It makes so much sense.
We enrolled the Dozer in trainng classes, but we were told he is not welcome unless he is on a pinch collar. It works to some degree, but he is one of the most hard headed dogs I have ever encountered.

Don't allow your dog to greet for so long that he gets excited enough to jump. Pay very close attention and when he starts showing signs of excitement that's your cue to say "have a nice day" and then take 8-10 FAST steps in the other direction so your dog turns away from the people ad pays attention to you. Maybe this means that your dog only gets to greet for 2 seconds at first, but he'll learn that if he wants attention then he has to stay calm. If you're approaching people and you can tell that your dog is already excited, then that's not the time to do a greeting, and you just walk right by or cross the street if you need to in order to walk by with your dog remaining calm.

My apologies for the delay! I appreciate all the wonderful advice so much, thank you. She's my buddy and such a good pup, she just needs a bit of guidance and I want to help her all I can.

I have also decided to enroll her in an obedience course, I think that would help a lot as well. There isn't one available until November 19th, but she'll still only be 8 months at that point, so at least that won't be all that late to start!

Two comments...

When a dog jumps up to greet you, you walk INTO them and claim that as your SPACE. Do NOT walk away. Walking away teaches them they are the boss of that space and they will keep doing it. Even before they jump, gently walk into them and make them move.

Secondly, whoever said to use a "shock" collar is also partially wrong. You don't "shock" them, you use a gentle stimulation BEFORE they jump up to interrupt the behavior and then make them sit/stay until released. Electronic collars are very effective training tools, IF USED properly.

This is per Mary Mazzeri, K.O.'s trainer. (IACP Hall of Fame dog trainer.) About Care Dog Training - Carpentersville, Illinois

Hope that helps!

The only time Pheona jumps is when my cousin & her boyfriend comes into the house. She gets so excited to see them. Any other person comes to the door & I tell her to go to bed and she does. She can sit there the whole time the maintenance man is in the house working on stuff. Pheona was 4 weeks old when she came to live with us, then my hub deployed so my cousin and her boyfriend spent A LOT of time at my house. She bonded with them as much as she has with us, she listens when they give commands as well but she gets so excited when she sees them through the window.

Thanks for saying you wish me the best af wx wife, I appreciate it. :-)

And Knucklehead, that is great advice! I wouldn't want to use something like a shock collar on her, I would want to teach her in other ways if possible. And thank you for the link, I do think the obedience training will be the best thing for her as well.

Also, does anyone have a smaller breed around their Boxer? My parents have an Affenpinscher, and Gia does try to play with her, but it seems she bites Gia on the face which gets her rather agitated, not that I think she (my Boxer) would ever hurt her, just wondering if anyone has thoughts on that kind of situation.

We have an 11 yr old min pin.. Wyatt is learning not to bother her and is slowly learning she's the alpha dog. He will still hunt her down and look for her from time to time but he doesn't really bother her too much anymore ( it's been 3 weeks since I've moved back home with him, he's 5 months). In one of my books it says that once he is fixed he will pay her no attention. He does try to be her food since she's a grazer. Sometimes I think he just wants to play with her but forgets she is so small and will pounce on her, not to hurt her but just to play. She is also learning to ignore him and put him in him in his place. Sometimes though he will just walk past and she will snarl at him. It's quite humorous at times but mostly annoying. He also know which toys of hers to NOT play with or she gets extremely pi$$ed! We got a clicker for like $1.50 and it worked at first with him.

I want to try this with our boxer, she is a great dog but jumping up on people is a bad habit!

Nikki only seems to jump at people that don't come over often. I tell her off and when she's settled I let her say hi. Sometimes we need to keep at it.
