Stop Puppy Jumping up on visitors


Puppy jumping up on visitors:


If your puppy is jumping on your visitors then ask them to ignore the puppy and turn their back,


It may also help if you hold the puppy by its collar or on a lead until they relax – then release.

If your puppy decides to mouth you then you should immediately isolate them in another room or a crate.


Puppy jumping up at you when you are getting ready for the walk:


Put the leash down and wait for 10 minutes or until your puppy is calm, then try again. This is important and although you are keen to go for a walk you should not rush it!


Important concepts:


It is really important not to speak – to stay calm and not say a word when your puppy jumps up.


Remember your puppy is an attention-seeking machine!


Your puppy’s jumping up and space invading is not its way of saying I love you!!


Space is very important to a dog and if she can invade yours whenever she wants then she will lose respect for you.

How would you feel if a human constantly invaded your space!

It is more similar than you think!!


Start as you mean to go on. When your puppy is calm then you can call her and pick her up for a cuddle


When you are ignoring your puppy keep your arms folded and walk past the puppy confidently and assertively.


The two most common mistakes:


Inconsistency – sometimes puppy jumping up is given attention!
People make eye contact…This invites your puppy over, so do not make eye contact, focus on something else.


Another trick that will help is to train your puppy to sit for everything!

If you can get your puppy to practise lots of “sits” then her default behaviour will simply be to sit when you call her, and not jump!
