|What have you tried as far as training already? Does he know and follow other basic obedience commands? |
We don't tolerate jumping here - but that doesn't mean it hasn't been a problem in the past. Naturally, having an OES means just about everyone wants to touch your dog - so as soon as people come up to you and your dog, just tell them point blank "please ignore him for a minute". Command the dog to sit (if he will) - and only then let the person greet him. If he jumps at the point, we usually direct (or do it ourselves) others to step FORWARD into the jump, rather than back away.
Anyway, that's just the advice I was given - other may have far more useful suggestions.
|The first thing I do when Bailey jumps is stand completely still and ignore her, not even looking at her. Then, when she sits, I pet her again. If you tell everyone to go with that, it should work! I have family members who love to ignore what I ask them to do when it comes to the dogs, so it's been a challenge getting it to work for me.|
|I was told to turn your back on them as they jump-result,flat on your face on the ground with a licking machine on top of you. Then we were told to step sideways "out of their space" they soon cottoned on to that and jump accordingly. Now it,s "NO JUMP!" and hand down to hold down at the same time moving towards him and that works. We tell customers to ignore till sitting and that is working as well. Tortoises are easier to train not to jump but not so much fun to walk or hug!!!x|
|For some reason Kenny knows that "no bite' means no jump or bite hahahah....he now does this half jump thing where he bumps your hand but much better than it used to be. I've also trained him to jump (both paws on my chest) on me saying "Up" and I think training him to do it on command has helped rather than just always.|
When he gets super hyper, there is no stopping him so i just warn people not to wind him up if they can't take the consequences
|Training the people is harder than training the dog. Start by posting a notice on the front door - DOG IN TRAINING - PLEASE DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE HIM|
If he does jump up - step forward into the jump - it will keep him off balance, which he'll hate, and eventually it will keep him from doing it. Oh - and no hands - don't push him off with your hands. That one is hard as it is counter intuitive. I've had several trainers tell me that hands, even when pushing down or away, are approval - so no hands. Seems to work here. Sometimes slowly...but it gets the message across eventually.
This is one of my biggest pet peeves, personally, and so it is one of the first things we work on when we get a foster dog. I tell them "Jumping is RUDE" as I step forward into them.
Of course, I also say this EVERY TIME some little ankle biter dog starts jumping on my leg and scratching at me. Why is it people with small dogs seem to think it is okay to let their dogs jump on people?? UGH!! < Okay - end rant>

AMEN. I hate that.
I really like the sign on the door idea, that's a good one!
|I kinda think it's funny when the little dogs do the two leg hop for like 20 seconds|
|Jumping's a big pet peeve of mine...and never allowed. |
Like mentioned - it's the people who need to be trained. If you ever pet or touch your dog when it jumps, you are rewarding it...it's that simple.
At our house we always bend over to pet them - and reward 4 feet on the ground. Even puppy Bond never jumps on people, as he was never rewarded and never allowed. And we always bend over and give him lots of love and hugs
Same thing with foster dogs of all ages....they really learn it very quickly if YOU are consistent.
Another way to deal with jumping is to walk forward into the dog when it jumps - no hands, just walk right into them.
|A very wise woman taught me something that finally cured my OES. When she jumped up I grabbed her paws and she walked backwards for a bit, as I walked toward her. Turned out the sheepie didn't really like that little dance. So the jumping stopped.|
Thank you Tina Dougan!
