Baddog finished off a bit of ice cream she found in the freezer at the weekend, and has been obsessed with the bin this week.  :D

Bella is 15 months old  We've just moved from Devon to Norfolk, and were so proud when her new vet said "She's perfect! And so beautiful! Bella's going to be spayed on Tuesday (she has a little hernia) and we're concerned about the collar she'll have to wear. We've bought a comfy collar, but

Jumping up
« on: September 15, 2018, 03:23:11 PM »
Sorry guys, I know I've asked about his before, but still have problems with Finn jumping up.  He gets so excited if someone comes to the house or sometimes just because he's made that way!  We have tried all the usual training methods; diverting his attention and rewarding him for sitting, lying down, fetching something, whatever.  He has now started jumping on to me and my partner when we are sitting on the sofa - he's not allowed on the furniture, never has been.  Not sure what has provoked this recent trend, and still not sure how to stop him jumping all over visitors. Help!

I had this with a dog years ago. What worked for me was to put him back down on the floor and say no. Do not take any further notice of him. Every time it happens do the same. It will work eventually.

If you can get an 'ah!' in before his feet leave the ground then you might be able to stop him, and then of course, he'll need a big reward.

Williamthedog's advice is good and should work, or you could even take him out of the room briefly as extra reinforcement.  The key will be rewarding four feet on the ground/lying at your feet and trying not to give him any attention for jumping up.

Thanks for your suggestions - very helpful.  We have been doing as Williamthedog said and saying "No" loudly, then ignoring him.  I think it's starting to work.  The other problem is jumping all over people when they come in the house.  Some of them are sussed around dogs and ignore him, which does the trick, especially if we supply them with a treat to give him as a reward for good behaviour.  Finn is such a lovely boy and he loves people, which means, for him, getting as close as he can .... We are using rewards for every bit of behaviour we want, and it does seem to be working.
