Puppies and grown dogs want to see and interact with you in person and can in some cases get in your face. This brings about many dogs jumping in order to have that face-to-face contact. If your doggie is small, this may well not be a problem, yet large dogs like duck dogs like Labs and Retrievers can get intimidating when they start that bouncing, not to mention it could be painful.
The first thing you can do to stop jumping is to kneel to the dog? This permits him to see your face and eliminates the key reason most dogs jumps in the first place.
Getting upon or down to his level will tell him you see him.
One other method you can employ if the above doesn’t work is to turn your back in your dog. Look up toward the ceiling and refuse to acknowledge him until he settles and sits. Dogs hate being ignored, particularly if that is usually the reason for his or her getting in trouble in the first place. For this solution to do the job, you must work on not making any eye contact until your dog has calmed. The tiniest acknowledgment will get him/her excited once again.
A third method that appears to work well with larger dogs is to hold out until they jump and gently grab hold of their front legs. Slowly and gradually walk the dog in reverse a couple of foot then gently set his front paws on the floor, saying “down” or “off”. Dogs hate to walk backwards, and doing consequently could make him or her to connect the unpleasantness. Saying the word “down” or “off” as you place his paws on the ground could possibly get him to connect with keeping his feet on the ground.
It doesn’t take too long to train your dog not to jump simply by being consistent with whichever approach you choose. It also helps if (its possibly) to enlist the cooperation of other family members so if everybody is employing the same method. This should create less confusion plus more success.
