Breaking Bad: Surefire Ways to Stop Your Dog from Jumping

Breaking Bad: Surefire Ways to Stop Your Dog from Jumping
It's vital that your pet knows not to jump on people, especially children.

It’s vital that your pet knows not to jump on people, especially children.

No one wants their dog to jump on people and possibly hurt someone when they visit your home. This is a special concern with children and the elderly who can easily be hurt if they fall. You can avoid this kind of accident by teaching your dog from an early age that jumping is unacceptable. Using DogMan Mark Wisdom will help your dog stop jumping even faster than you expect.

Make the Jumping Stop

Your dog is excited. He likes people. He’s happy when new people visit. And he loves to jump! Dogs are built to jump and it’s something they love to do. It may seem almost impossible to get your dog to stop trying to jump up in the faces of your family and friends at times.
Fortunately, when it comes to bad behaviors, jumping up on people is one of the easier problems to stop. Here are some tips to help you make the jumping stop.

First Determine WHY Your Dog Is Jumping

There are reasons why your dog is jumping. It’s not just because your dog wants to get in your face. Your dog wants to be dominant over any new people who enter the house. Your dog thinks he’s the alpha dog in the home, the leader of the pack, and he thinks he can do what he wants to do. Naturally, this doesn’t apply to every dog who jumps. In some cases a dog jumps because they want to be closer to people so they can greet them. Dogs will sniff and smell other dogs’ faces as a greeting. It’s not surprising they want to smell our faces.
Dogs will also jump because they’ve been rewarded for jumping in the past. If you pet your dog for jumping you’re giving your dog the message that you approve of the behavior. This is not a good way to get the jumping to stop.

The goal is a dog who knows his place.

The goal is a dog who knows his place.

WHAT You can do to Stop the Jumping

First, you need to stop making a fuss about returning home. If your dog gets excited and overly happy when people come in the house, your dog will show this same kind of behavior when strangers come in the home. That includes the elderly and children, and these are people who could be hurt by an overly excited dog.

Start waiting 10 to 15 minutes after you arrive home before you greet your dog. This will remove the excitement from your greeting and allow your dog to calm down. You should also put yourself down on your dog’s level to give the greeting.
Get down to your dog’s level so your dog can smell your face. This is a surefire way to stop the jumping. You can teach your dog that he only gets to greet you when you are on his level.
You can also teach your dog to respond to certain commands. Teach your dog to sit and stay before greeting them. Teach your dog the “Off” command so they get off you right away.

Teach Your Dog the “Off” Command

The “Off” Command is a must to stop the jumping. Teach it right away and immediately reward him for getting off you with a treat or praise. Your dog will learn quickly.
You will need to be consistent with the command. Tell everyone in your home that your dog has to follow the new command. Allowing your dog to disobey the command is unacceptable. If everyone follows the same command with your dog, your dog will learn much more quickly the meaning of “OFF.”

In no time, you will have an obedient dog who understands his place and will heed your command. Such a relief to welcome people into your home without fear of a jumping dog.

3 Key Things to Know about Your Dog’s Need for Mental and Physical Exercise

pet socializaiton

Pets are Smart…and not easily fooled.

Getting Social-ized

The socialization during the first few months of your puppy’s life will determine how well adjusted he really is. If you want to ensure his proper development into a stable, mature companion then you must make sure he gets both physical and mental exercise. You can take him into town on a leash, for example, so he becomes accustomed to and comfortable around people, other animals, noise and traffic. Let him ride in the car. Encourage your dog to be friendly with people and other dogs who give him no reason to be apprehensive.

It’s important to keep these three things in mind as you socialize your dog and prepare him mentally and physically.

First Few Days Away From the Litter and Mom Can Be Rough.

Away from Mom and the Litter

It’s quite dramatic and even frightening for a young dog to be taken away from his “natural” family–his mother and littermates. Since young dogs can’t express the severity of this, it’s up to you to provide as smooth of a transition as possible. Young dogs are quite sensitive to this change. Have your new dog spend as much time as possible being cared for by immediate family, or better yet, a single person who will spend most of the time with him.

Dogs are Pack Animals.

Pack Animals

Dogs are pack animals—they need company. They don’t do well alone. In fact, scientists have shown that wolves rejected by their pack will not survive. And this is not because of starvation, but it’s because they can’t stand to be left alone. So make a point to not leave your dog alone during the first few weeks. He is now part of YOUR FAMILY so he should have the privilege of living in the house.

The grass is always greener outside the kennel.

Do Not Confine in a Kennel

Do you want a good guardian of your family? Then do not confine him to a kennel outdoors. It is all too common. And it is downright heartless. A dog will not develop properly if left in a kennel. Your dog is your companion and your guardian and must be given the right to live in the house. By nature, he will guard only what he considers his own property and possessions.

 

Dogs are smart animals. They bring us great joy through companionship. They give us a sense of security through being our guardians. Always bear in mind your dog’s need for both mental and physical acuity. It could mean a Happily FURever After for you both!
