    Rage Help with training a dog

    How do you get your dog to stop jumping on company that comes over and on furniture.

    If you dog does it enough, your company will stop coming over. Problem solved...you're welcome.

    Come up with a word for when he jumps on people. Make sure everyone uses this word. Ex. Off or down. Set up training times and get your dog to jump on you. when he does, say the word and grab his paws and squeeze until he cries or pulls away. Soon, he will think "**** this" and stop jumping.

    Yup. My ditch dog was so afraid of people that had to work on socializing him, then he was too social and wanted pets from everyone. I started saying "down" every time his front paws left the ground, and now he is fine. Every once in awhile he gets too excited, but even then he catches himself before he jumps.

    Does he jump on you? When the dog jumps on you turn your back to him. If he only does it to company either lease him when they first arrive or if you are comfortable ask your company to turn their back on him.

    Do you own a taser? Works on kids will probably work on dogs too.

    You are the pack leader...when you come home you should not even acknowledge the dog for 10 or 15 minutes....they are the peons in the pack hierarchy and in their terms they don't expect the big dog to give them pleasure...when you do greet them you should get down to their level so they have no need to jump...

    If they do attempt to jump you should turn your back on them and try to side step the jump...avoid eye contact...do not talk to them...if they are a big dog you can extend your knee and let them bounce off..

    Never give positive feedback when they do jump...

    Of course, when I come home my dogs go ape shit and I immediately acknowledge their ape shittyness....

    Two or three knees to the chest should do it. And like someone said be the lead dog.

    Jerk it off a few times. It'll never jump on anyone again. It'll just roll over on its back.

    Clicker training? It really speeds up training.
