Step 3 of How to Stop your Dog from Jumping Up: Use a lead on your dog when people are near.
When training your dog to not jump up a lead or leash is a great way to help train your dog to behave when meeting new people and put you back in control. If your pup starts to jump, give the lead a small tug. You can reel your pup back to your side and help calm their excitement.
* Use commands like “sit” and “stay” when using the lead trick.
* Keep a distance between you and the stranger with your pup pulled closely at your side.
* Lessening the slack on the lead means your pup can’t jump too high.
* Dogs read body language, so stay calm when introducing your pup to new people.
