One of the basics when it comes to dog training. However, it is still the most asked topic and can be quite challenging! Jumping!
Josh talks about the strategies when it comes to jumping. Using examples and hands-on techniques when you have guests over.
It is crucial that we talk to our guests, let them know you have a jumping dog(s), and ask them to help you ignore the dog when it comes to greetings/leaving. We want less excitement and more practice.
We can leash our dogs 5-10 mins before our guests come over, which helps you control any outbursts. We also need to wait till your dog is in a calm state. Then reward.
Key points are:
#1. Focus on the Positives;
#2. Our guests need to help us by listening;
#3. Don't be shy to take breaks (Active rests).
Keep up the training! And stay positive!
