Does Your Dog Jump on People?

You can prevent your dog from jumping on people by having them on leash in the house and teaching them to sit and stay. When someone comes into your home they should make eye contact with you first and avoid talking to your dog. The visitor can then greet your dog so long as your dog remains in the sit stay. If your dog gets up you should place them back in the sit position and try your greeting again. You will need to practice this routine daily until your dog consistently responds to your command.

His reward for responding to your “come” command can initially be a small, tasty treat which you can wean him off of later. You can also use the sound of your voice and a toy to encourage your dog to come to you and then praise

Sasha’s Story

Meet Sasha. She is a 9 year old Weimaraner and is taking a rest after her first week in our intermediate obedience class at Shadowbrook Kennels. The family who own Sasha have had Weimaraners in the past but she is their first rescue. Sasha was in a few other homes before she came to them and, while she initially had some issues, has come a long way. Her true personality has started coming through in the last few months and she is quite the “comedian”. She is one of a few dogs in Garth Trails that I walk from time to time and whenever I enter her home she greets me with a different pillow or cushion. So the pillows in the photo have some significance.
