Jumping problems

Alright everyone I have a major fave to ask of you. My knowledge of dogs jumping on people is of very little.
I am facing a major jumping problem about a dog jumping on people wether they are sitting down, walking, jogging, running, or just standing around. It doesnt matter this dog just JUMPS! I have tried pointing and say no or that ahah sound thingy. This dog just wont listen.


Alright here is the story behind this dog. Now that you know what its problem is. This dog is owned by the people who live next door of my grandmas. She has seen this dog grow from a pup. Its not even a year old yet. This dog has gone down hill fast. The owners are never home and we never see them feeding their dogs. The black and white one they have seems to be doing ok on its own. Though this white one they just got is doing bad. Tonight when they get home, I am left up to the task to go over and see if we can have this dog.

Where I am standing is if they do let us have this dog and let us take it to the vets and everything, how can I stop the jumping. I am know how to leash train, sit, lay down and stays but not keep them from jumping.
I do know that if a dog goes and walks infront of you while your walking, you just keep walking. That after being ran into a few times that they will get out of the way. Though, this dog will do it no matter what you are doing. I was lung lining my horse and the dog came into the circle and tried to jump at me. I was able to keep it away with the whip but there is hardly any stopping it ((no I did not hit the dog with the whip. I hit the ground next to it and the dog ran for the hills))

Wow sorry bad spelling my bad

With jumping dogs I either step on the back toes or knee them in the chest ( not to hard don't wanna hurt them). If you are sitting a nice pop on the head works to and a firm and aggressive NO! Get down, off whatever. They also make anti jump harnesses for occasions when you can't reach the dog to correct it.

When mine first did that it was a knee or hand to the chest to push then back. Then a hand in front of their face as if saying stop to block them from jumping again with a stern "NO". They learned fast not to jump.

I have tried that. I would sit there and know she is going to do it. So before she has a chance to get the second paw in the air for a jump I hold up one or two hands and say now. She some how moves between or around your hands and gets on you.

Use a leash for behavior corrections. Use an appropriate collar. Whenever the dog goes to jump, pop that leash. I would pop it moderately hard for this sort of thing. Saying no just isn't gonna work at this point. You gotta do something that gets the wheels in its head turning about what its doing. Make it sit after each correction. Anytime a stranger is approaching, let the dog run at em like its gonna jump on em or whatever, but before that happens, correct. Then have the dog sit to say hi properly. This behavior isn't the worst that could be happening, but its gonna take some work to fix.

collar the dog.then get an inexpensive leash.cut it to wher it drags the ground somewhat long enough that you can stop the dogs lunges.it'll drag the ground and not really hinder the dog enough to be A problem.just step on it when he approaches you.get him to sit,then just give him the good dog command.then turn walk A short distance and do it again.don't imbed it and do it over and over as A training excercise.do it once or twice then go about your business.then do it when you are again approached.make it A casual routine. and don't use more than appreciation as the reward.you don't want it to figure out that it's being taught something.
it is apparent the dog has been abused and just so badly wants attention and to please someone.these make the best,bar none dogs you'll get.
once you get around this hurdle it will excell beyond imagination.
I've seen this to many times and always with good results.
by doing it with the cut leash you don't really get into the punishment phase of the teach.this want and desire is so deeply ingrained that the dog will foul from to much redirecting.with the cut leash it won't really recognize the measure as training or discipline.it is A third source. third source is A method seldom used or hardly heard of.
I learned this and other things from an old veit-nam war dog trainer.
he was good, folks asked him at one point to write his techniques into A book he said "I don't write books I teach dogs to teach their handlers.you write the book".
this has always wotked for me and folks/dogs I've bothered with.

My Ivan is learning not to jump as well, and I've found with him that reinforcing good behavior by rewards is working much better than popping the leash or bopping him on the nose or head (especially since in his excited state he sees it as me initiating a game.) Your dog is jumping because she wants your attention and she's excited to see you - try turning your back to her as soon as she jumps. Ask her to sit and turn around to pet her (and give her a treat!) when she does. It certainly won't stop jumping overnight, but it teaches her that she needs to calm down to get attention.

Keep a stash of training treats with you all the time - if she tries to jump while you're sitting, tell her "off" (she may also need a gentle push on the chest to get down) and reward her when she does.

When you take her out and she wants to jump on other people that say hello, ask them to give her a treat for sitting. This is also good for socialization and having your dog learn to listen to humans other than you. I agree with the above posters as well that stepping on the leash to prevent jumping can also be effective. Good luck with your new pup!

shelbs...the way to get harley to stop (it works for me) is I keep on walking into her..if she falls backwards she falls backwards. Don't say ANYTHING to her... don't even LOOK at her! just walk like she's not even there. when she's down off of you you give her the sit command and give her a pet and talk to her which teaches her as long as she sits she's going to get the attention that she needs.

I think the leash method works well...I have tried teaching the dog to jump as well. As a command..I use "up" for the word, because it easily relates to "up on the bed", "up in the car" etc.

Also if they are jumping at an undesirable time, I grab them on the shoulders and basically put them back on the ground, hold them there and said NO. It has worked with my older dog and dogs in the past, but my puppy is still too excited when she sees us come home that it hasn't gotten through to her yet.

Are you sure a dog jumps because it's excited to see you and wants your attention? Like when you first get home?

I've had dogs try to jump on me even after I've been with them for a while. Must of the time it's when they are excited about going for a walk. The excitement isn't because of me or wanting my attention. It's mainly because they are excited about what they know we are about to do.

I have no idea why dogs jump on people. Please don't read this wrong as if I'm being snotty. I'm just asking because I don't know why they jump so I'm trying to learn.

With your training technique:

What do you do if the dog jumps on you and you turn around and the dog still won't get down? Do you step away to get the dog down? If it's not your dog and they don't know sit what do you do?

When a stranger comes up to your dog, do you hand that person a treat before they meet the dog and have them make the dog sit or do you do this after the dog has already jumped on them? To make it training for your dog.

Like I said I'm only asking to learn new things to try.

In my personal experience, being consistent with the word "off" in a firm tone has been working great. Every time Chino runs up and tries to jump up, I say off and put my hand flat out to where he runs his chest into it and he learned pretty quick. I dont like the knee technique simply because if you teach them young enough you dont have to use it. I don't like the idea of an overly excited dog running his chest into my knee... But I know it works.. I motion for "sit" after most corrections for a bit of praise. Don't make it a new training session, just something that is consistent.

great advice...Though I am not talking about Harley. I am talking about Rosie. Wrong dog. Though, I shall keep trying that next weekend. I fell asleep before the people came home and well when I woke they were gone again
