A dog jumps on people. What to do?
It is very unpleasant when a joyful dog jumps on the master or his friends, pawing their clothes. However, this behavior can be quite easily corrected, regardless of the age of the dog.
These jumps are quite natural behavior fordogs. In the wolf pack it is customary to return the muzzle for sniffing when returning to the den. Therefore, when the owner returns home the dog intends to greet him by licking his face. But not all people enjoy this ritual.
There are several ways to change this state of affairs:
- The first way - ignoring the dog greeting, dodging her jumps and turning away her face. And so on until the animal calms down. Only after this, you can greet him by stroking.
- The second way Is to make a ritual of greetingAs much as possible acceptable to humans. For this, when entering home, immediately lean towards the dog, putting one hand forward to prevent jumps. With the second hand, stroke the dog on the head and back, forcing to sit down.
If the dog is small, then when jumping,It can be slightly pushed away by hand, at the same time with a severe voice saying "fu". When you try again, say "fu" and push the dog even more aggressively.
A more humane way is to teach the puppyWhen trying to jump on people, the team "Sit." First, the dog needs to be taught how to perform this command on its own. When the puppy learns this science well, when going home, immediately give the command "Sit." And only after the puppy correctly executes this command, to it it is necessary to bend and praise it: to stroke and greet, as though carrying out that ritual of a meeting.
To the dog does not lick his face, bending over to her, one must put forward one hand. At this time, the other hand needs to stroke the dog on the back, forcing to sit.
If you always be consistent, and do not change the rules of greeting, the dog will quickly get used to the new ritual of the meeting and will observe it.
If during a walk the dog jumps on acquaintances, at this moment it is necessary strictly to say the command "fu" and to tear the leash towards oneself. So it is necessary to do it every time, seeking obedience from the dog. Gradually bring to the point that the dog stopped its attempts only from one team.
When you wait for the guests, it is better to put on the dog a collar and leash, pulling the dog back when trying to jump on someone.
