Firstly, dogs are very social animals. They try to greet the guest by jumping on them and wagging their tails. This is a way more common nature of dogs.
They become overwhelmed and happy to see any guest and show their happiness in this manner.
Secondly, in case of 20% dogs, they try to show their dominance on any unknown visitor or any other family member. These kinds of dogs attain an aggressive tendency as they grow old.
Thirdly, sometimes it becomes their habit to jump on you or any other visitors without any reason or without any condition. Over attention, love and adoration from the time they were puppies grows this habit in them.
Generally this habits start growing in them and their jumping problems develops. The dogs won’t understand this until and unless they are getting a consistent training. Here we will discuss seven easy steps to stop dog jumping problem.
The first and foremost thing is to make your dog realise that if he wants to greet you he has to settle down. If your dog take an initiative to jump on you just take yourself away from him without giving him any attention that he might be seeking for.
As soon as you give him attention it will come on his mind that my master wants me to jump on him. So don’t indulge it. When your dog settle down then make some interaction with him.
Generally dogs feel uncomfortable when any one holds their paws or touch their paws. When your dogs jump on you just take a hold of his paws so that it makes him uncomfortable. Just firmly hold a grip of their paws to make them realise that you do not like it.
Another thing is very important. Don’t leave his paws until and unless your dog tries to struggle to get his paws back under his control.
The next important thing is that you command your dog to “stay off” to let him know it is not a good behaviour. Use a stern voice while you are commanding.
If your dog even after your instruction is not listening to you then hold their collar and pull it downwards. This will give him a feeling that his master is getting offended with his behaviour.
Treat your dogs positively. Don’t beat them for their behaviour as this might turn your dog aggressive.
Try these steps for at couple of weeks. Be consistent in your training and take patience.
If anyone who really cares for their dogs will surely make their dogs understand this because they are having a bonding of love and affection with their dogs and they really care for their dogs.
