The first offense the article discusses is when a dog jumps on house guests. Dr. Yin explains how to curb this behavior:
… [M]ake training fun for the both of you by turning it into a game, says Sophia Yin, a veterinarian and applied animal behaviorist at San Francisco Veterinary Specialists. Here’s how: Encourage your dog to run with you down the hallway or across the backyard then stop, and ask him to sit. As soon as his furry bottom hits the ground, give him a treat.
If your dog jumps then sits, hold the treat at nose level as he approaches to distract him from jumping.
Yin says this “game” teaches dogs to keep all four paws on the ground and to sit, even when they’re excited. Click here to see a video of the greeting game.
