How to Stop a Dog from Jumping Up on People: Ask your friends to ignore your dog’s jumping too.
A dog’s behavior won’t change without persistence. Let your friends and people you meet know that you’re training your dog to stop jumping up. If your pup approaches them, ask them to stay still or simply walk by. This will help your furry friend realize that you’re not the only one enforcing this new rule. Try saying something like:
1) “I can’t wait for you to meet Rex! But if he jumps up on you, please don’t acknowledge it. We’re working on that.”
2) “Are you okay with dogs? Charlie’s big, and I’m warning you, he jumps. Just stand still and turn around. I’m training him, and the first step is ignoring the jumping.”
3) “Jet is going to love you! He’s been jumping lately, and we’re still training, so please don’t pet or talk to him if he does jump on you.”
