Video Tip: Does Your Dog Jump on You When You Come Home?

 

Many owners complain that their dog jumps on them when they come home. This is a habit and you can create a new one.

Anticipate the excited behavior.

Don’t meet your dog’s excitement with more of your own. Be quiet.

Model the emotional state you’d like to see from the dog.

Tell the dog to sit. They can’t jump if they’re sitting.

Reward the dog AND move them away from you by tossing a toy or a treat across the floor.
