How to get a dog out of the habit of jumping?

Jumping is usually meant as an enthusiastic hello from the dog’s side. But the other person is generally not happy to be greeted with muddy paws. So it’s better to quickly get your four-legged friend out of the habit of this behavior.

If your dog belongs to the quadrupeds who like to swing their paws in the air, one thing above all applies: Do not let this become a habit. Because the more often your dog celebrates his stormy welcome, the more difficult it will be to break him of this greeting again. So make him quickly aware that his behavior is not desired – after all, the four-legged friend can’t smell that.

Dog owners reward often jumping unconsciously.

Easier said than done. Dog owners often make a crucial mistake that makes it difficult to break the habit: they reward the four-legged friend’s behavior, albeit unconsciously. Perhaps the following scenario sounds familiar: After a long day at work, you look forward to your cheerful furry nose greeting you in its usual blustery manner. You disapprove of the behavior, but at the same time, you are amused by the affectionate jumping, and you respond with petting. Your positive reaction does not go unnoticed by your dog. He will not change his short greeting in the future. Consistency is essential to get your four-legged friend to stop jumping at you. Even if your partner on four paws still comes along so sugary sweet, show him the cold shoulder. This is the only way to break him of his behavior in the long term.

How to get rid of it? Ignore him

How do you do that? Quite simply: the moment your dog starts to jump, you should turn away. Stay in this position until your dog has put his paws back on the ground. And only then turn back to him and reward him. Show him that he has done the right thing. It certainly won’t take long for him to understand and for you to break him of the habit of jumping on you.
