Just like us humans hugging as a social behavior, jumping is a part of your dog's social behavior that indicates excitement and the desire to play. Some owners will tell you that jumping is part of a dominate behavior. When you stop dog jumping in your home you are addressing your dog's alpha behavior and establishing yourself as a leader at the same time.
It is Better To Bend The Tree Than To Break It
Usually, dog jumping starts from the pup stage and is much easier to address while your dog is young than to wait until it is fully grown to begin implementing a no jump policy. But if the cat has been let out the bag already (no pun intended) then you will have to resort to different approach to curb your dog's jumping antics.
Ignore Your Dog's Jumping
The more attention you pay to a situation the more it occurs. When you see you dog is in that state where he is jumping or wants to jump, you can simply ignore the dog and go do something else while at the same time glancing at his/her behavior to you ignoring him. Ignore him for as long as he chooses to jump. This should last only for a few moments. As soon as he sits or calms down, praise him. This will help to draw the attention getting behavior away from jumping and place it with the calmer alternative. As you repeat this process your dog will eventually get the message that sitting down or behaving in a calm manner is what is going to get him attention. When you train like this to stop dog jumping, you will get a calmer dog as a side benefit.
Give Him Command as Soon as He Jumps
If you dog is already trained for the basic commands such as sit, stop, stay, etc. You can use these commands to curb his jumping by simply triggering a command when you know that his approach to you is a jumping one.
Tell Him/Her To Stop
Yes, it is fun sometimes when you and your canine pal get into a scuffle and you both roll on the ground for that last doggy cookie. But you can't be serious about telling your dog not to jump while laughing your head off. When you dog jumps on you. Hold him and firmly asserts the STOP or NO command each time he does so, he will get the jest. Always remember to praise your dog for listening and following instructions.
