11 thoughts on “How to Stop Your Puppy from Jumping Up – Correct This While They’re Young”

  1. Thank you Debra for this very helpful information on how to stop puppies from jumping up. I know several people with puppies who could really do to read this and apply it to their own situation. I would think that it isn’t good to let something like this go unchecked because it might develop into more serious problems. Thank you again!

  2. I like the information and tips at the end. I would check the lay out at the bottom of the page under the Doggy Dan logo. “of! Click here for more information”, see if you can get this sentence to move over under the paragraph, instead of under the logo. This would make the flow at the bottom easier to read.

  3. I agree with this article so much. Teaching correct behavior in a dog is so much easier when they’re younger. The tips here were spot on.

    It seems like when my dog was a puppy he was more eager to please me. What about if the dog begins to jump up again once they’re older? Should I keep using these techniques or is there a better approach for more mature dogs?

    1. My understanding is that you simply “re-teach.” – start over again doing the same training with the older dog and he’ll re-learn the rules. 🙂

  4. Debra,
    Thanks for this wonderfully written and super informative piece on puppy behavior.
    I never understood what their intent was when it would happen so often with people I would visit.
    Their dog would be constantly jumping up licking towards the face over and over.
    I so wish I had seen your post sooner but now I know where to direct a few folks with these puppy issues.
    I hope like you said they can curb the behavior before they get full grown.
    Thanks again,

    Gary

  6. Hi Debra,

    What a nice and interesting article, I was absorbed by the reading! You have given such good information to avoid puppies jump on us or on guests.I have two big dogs and one of them jump sometimes on my daughter’s girlfriends and, to be honest, it really bothers me. I would like to know if the suggestions you gave in the article will have the same impact on big dogs as it does on puppies?
    Thank you very much for this excellent post!

    1. Yes, the way dogs think is the same – from birth on. 🙂 Thanks so much for the kind compliments.

  7. A co-worker told me about this, which I did; but then, when I came into the house, my dog no longer greeted me. I felt this loss for 11 years, until she passed away. ?

    1. I’m sorry about that, Janice. But I’m sure you were a very loving mommy and your sweet dog was always happiest when you were home! Debra
