How can I get my dog to stop jumping on people??

I have a 15 month old APBT named Cholo. He loves everyone and gets so excited when people come throught the door and thinks that he needs to jump on them so that they will see him(hes 95lbs). My husband and I have tried everything we got a trainer and that did good till she left someone told us to knee him in the chest when he jumps but he doesnt care. we put his collar on him and the leash and held it but he just pulls. we tried food everything but he wont stop jumping. he is a big dog and this is not ok. And i know that its our fault, when he was a puppy and would jump we thought it was cute but now its not. How can I get him to stop jumping? Any info would be great Thank You.

I read on here somewhere, that when a dog does something that you dont' approve of, grab there jowls and hold them, look them in the eyes and say "NO ____". It was said by a trainer, but can't remember whom. I still need to work with this with my dog. She's only 50lbs, but when she jumps up on the kids 8+yrs she knocks them back a bit. Can't be having that! I can only imagine a 95lb dog.

You need to watch the Dog Whisperer with Ceasar. He always shows people how to break the dog of this. Mine likes to jump up as well, although shes only 45lbs (6 mo) so I couldn't imagine 95! lol Now if I say her name and tell her down, she'll sit. Shes just sooo excited, so I have to bend down and love on her for a while. In training classes they actually tell you to say OFF, not DOWN, they don't want you to confuse the 2. Which makes sense. Maybe try it with some treats so he knows if he does it theres a reward!

What I've seen people do with success is before you open the door for the guests have them go into a sit and stay position and open the door, if they release without your permission, close the door and try again until they do it right. It takes time but I've seen great success with this. Also if they jump on you or someone else, turn around and ignore them, don't scold them just pretend their not their until they sit, then give them praise. If they jump on you again then repeat until they sit again. Try that see if it works. I've been doing this with my dog and so far I'm seeing improvements. I hope this helped.

i've tried everything under the sun and nothing has really worked too well. BUT the spray bottle. stay strapped with the spray bottle. its a good training tool IMO. its worked very well. and its not going to detour your dog from liking going swimming or anything like that.

I've always found that the less fuss you make, the less they do it. I tell all visitors to ignore the dogs (don't talk to them, don't look at them, don't pat them) until they have calmed down. If they do jump, I tell them to turn their backs to the dogs. This settles our dogs down in about a minute. After that they're fine. It used to take longer (maybe 3-4 mins) when they were around your dog's age though.

Honestly the method I have always found the most effective with adults is the Victoria Stillwell technique of ignoring the dog when it jumps. When the dog jumps up on you, turn your back, do not let the dog achieve its goal of getting to eye level with you. When we went to the breeder's last week, she let out a 6 month old bitch who was super excited and she barrelled up to us jumping and whining. After Mike and I took a couple of turns making sure she only got our back, she got the hint. With a small pup, I just catch them in the jump, and push them into a sit and hold them there while I calmly pet them, they tend to get the hint. I have never personally had an adult jumper, as this method breaks the habit as a pup, but for adults the turn your back method is very effective.

When guests come over, you can't always expect these people to be able to handle training with you, so you should crate your pup until they come in, and then once the dog has calmed, leash it and let it meet the guests, giving corrections for bad behavior.

Ignore the pup. Your gonna need a bunch of guinea pigs to help you, have them show up and ignore the pup, meaning if he jumps, turn their backs until he stops and realizes he is being ignored and as soon as the puppy calms down, give so much praise and love they think they just did the BEST thing ever. Then do it again. If it does not work with the praise, give a treat as soon as they calm down. Eventually they realize more fun comes when they are calm.

Sometimes it works to teach an alternate behavior, like sit or down. I've been working with Terra, teaching her that she is only allowed to jump up when invited. If she does it otherwise, I make an ugly noise and turn away from her. If I want to give pets, I have her sit first. If you're consistent in enforcing the sit-first-no-jumping rule, sooner or later the dog has to learn that sitting is the only way he'll get petted.

You can probably solve this in two different ways
1. Right when he jumps up just walk into his space. He'll give you a "wtf?" look but he jumps on you, you can go into his space.
2. Clicker train. First get the basics of clicker training. When he jumps he eventually gets all four legs back down. When his feet touch the ground click and treat. While he's jumping on you don't do anything. You want to capture the behavior instead of creating it.

If he is 95 pounds then he is not a APBT i just had to put the out there as far as jumping and pulling goes get you a prong collar when he goes to jump on someone give him a quik correction when you walk him and he pulls give another one he will stop after a few corrections only took 2 or 3 to get my dogs to stop pulling and jumping on people

Ignore the dog when it jumps, turn your back and don't pay attention. When the dog is on all 4 you can pet and give attention, if it jumps ignore again.

The jaw grabbing never worked for me and would just get Sasha aggravated.

Ok enough with the out of weight range cannot be a APBT stuff please... There are many other threads on that subject... BTW, I have APBT at 85 lbs and used to be 95 lbs and guess what sometimes they are just large even though like in my case their parents were within standard. Thank You and sorry "just had to get that out"...

Second, on the jumping (the op), what I did may not work but heck give it a try if nothing else works...
Sarge was really bad about jumping on anyone so I started putting my knee up to block him and told visitors to do the same... Since turning your back isnt always possible when they are already up... Then I would turn my back and also instructed visitors to do so... Stay ignoring him until he calms (this may take some time and patience at first)...
If I knew someone was coming over I would put a leash on with his prong collar... When they knocked he went to a sit/stay position but once I let him up we went back to the first suggestion...
Lastly, he was not to be paid attention to unless he calmed and sat down no matter what... He learned pretty between the three methods that he was getting any wiggle butt love until he calmed enough...

Nikita were working on still, if I come up with something new for her (which I may have to) I will post it so you can try it...

+1! Spray bottle is the way to go. It will get them to stop humanely and most dogs remember a spray of water in the face as much as getting zapped by a shock collar. I never had to use a spray bottle on my APBT but I've seen it work on others.
