    Thanks it's always nice to hear what works for other boxers! We have been consistent with Bella with our strategy but it sure is taking a long time. Having said that at 10 months she is getting a lot better, and if she's in a jumpy mood when guests come over we tie her up to the banister in our kitchen for 5 minutes until she settles down!

    Good Luck with that! Ours respond to holding our hand flat right above their heads and saying no. But that takes practice. You know I have always heard that it's not the dogs that need training but the humans. We train our guests that come over to put their hands up and say no. And even if someone says it's o.k., we don't allow them to jump or get in people's laps. We sometimes have to explain to our dog loving guests why we don't want them doing that. Our 1 year old girl is actually pretty good about listening and not jumping on people. It's our hard headed 3 year old boy that we are still working with (70lbs). We did get him as a stray but he was only about 10 months. I am not gonna lie. Sometimes, he just gets a good ole fashioned butt whipping. Unfortunately, with a Boxer, that's the only thing that gets their attention sometimes. (Even though it breaks my heart.)

    Hi I am new to the forum and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions to stop my wonderful 8 month old from jumping up on people who come to visit us at our home. We've tried treats at the door for sitting, and Bella still wears a lightweight leash around the house so we can pull her down if she doesn't respond to verbal "off", but I fear we are relying too much on the leash. She is very good about sitting and going "down" when she's not excited, but all bets are off when people come to the door. She wants to kiss everyone on the lips, and at 50+ pounds it's getting annoying! Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
