Dog Training Tip: Teach your dog to not jump up

A quick, easy tip on how to teach your dog, owned or borrowed, to not jump up when they greet you.

If your dog, owned or borrowed, jumps up when they greet you, here’s a quick training trick from our partners at Cuffe Vets:

  • Some dogs are so excited to meet people that they will jump up to say hello.
  • When this happens, turn away and wait until they’re a calmer before returning their greeting.
  • Rewarding this behaviour with an equally excited greeting can encourage it and many owners try hard to train their dogs out of this habit.

Put this tip into action and let us know if it helped your dog, owned or borrowed, not jump up.
