Default Jumping!!!

Okay, so Bobo loves to jump up and have people hold his forearms up whenever he sees people he loves. I'm pretty sure it's an affection thing, but a lot of people don't like jumping. I'm going to be moving in with my family in Utah this summer, and they have a seven year old. Jumping has to go. If he hurts her on accident, he's going to have to find another family. I want to stop the jumping. I have until summer. How can I do this?

Just be firm and consistent every time he tries.

You can try holding your knee up so that he jumps into your knee (not a nice feeling) and say 'No jump'. He should start to get the idea.

Or you can keep him on leash and when he starts to jump up pull down on the leash and say 'No jump'.

They're very quick to pick up on new things, the trick is to keep consistency.

What works for us is no touch, no talk, no eye contact. So if he jumps to greet you, you turn your back on him and ignore him until he settles down. Once he settles, then you greet him and praise him. As soon as he jumps again, you do the same thing.

He should figure out that jumping gets him ignored and no love. Hopefully that works for you too!

I agree with Susy. That is what we've done with our girls. The only ones they jump on is my cousin, her fiancee & our boys. They don't jump up when others or my husband or myself come in. Now I know they both will be excited to see me when I return home. Neither of my girls have ever been away from me. I'm missing them like crazy (missing hub & the boys too).

Thanks! I tried walking forward every time he jumps up today. That seemed to work a little bit. They say walking away is a bad idea because it shows them that they have control over the space around you. I'm not sure if that's true or not. They also say that stepping forward puts the dog off balance and they're no longer comfortable being in that position, so they stop jumping more. It also shows them that this space belongs to you. Idk if that technique will work for a young girl though. Idk, maybe I can break him of jumping enough that he won't fully jump ON her, just a small spring up, and not close to her. If I can get him to calm down that much, I'll be grateful.

You can teach him 4 on the floor. He gets no attention from you until all 4 paws are on the ground. It takes time.
