Dog Kennel Design
I thought the only solution to my dog's problem was to design a dogthat would keep him off of visitors until I found this information about how to train them to sit instead of jumping. This game you can play with your puppy to teach him the fun of sitting is called Sit for a Treat. There are a number of ways you can play this either with other puppies or with other family members. Get together with some other puppy owners and let the puppies run around the room. With approach the puppy and owner if the puppy obeys the first time when given the Sit command treat him. Pretty soon you will have a group of puppies that are hooked on sitting. The other way is to give everyone in your household a clicker and . Let your dog approach who ever he wants and have them give the Sit command. If your dog responds correctly on the first go, click and treat. In no time at all your dog will be going from family member to family member sitting for his treat. Jumping is a behavior that takes time to change. As with any bad habit you must not only reinforce the new routine but also limit the opportunities for falling back into the old. Once your dog has learned that sitting for guests instead of jumping on them is the desired behavior. He will be happier because everyone will feel more comfortable around him and he will get the attention he seeks. Though it isn't easy to turn your jumper into a well mannered dog, keep at it and make sure that you do your best to set your dog up to succeed.
