K9 Training Tip: Teach your Dog not to Jump while Being Pet
Updated: May 30, 2018
Does your pooch jump up on people when they try to pet them?! This video shows one technique to help your dog.
First, teach a strong Sit/Stay. During that stage, let people know that your dog is in training and cannot be petted just yet. Set your dog up for success and don’t allow him to practice bad manners.
Second, see how Trainer Ryan has his thumb in Belle’s collar? This reminds Belle to hold her Sit during the exciting being petted
Warn your pup that you are vigilant with an Eeeeaaasssyyy if they start to ramp up. Praise softly while they are doing well.
Start over if needed. Just walk away, come back, sit, thumb in collar and try again. Practice makes perfect! Keep this up and you will be able to weane off the thumb in the collar in no time.
