Dogs love to show their excitement about seeing people by jumping, but that behavior isn’t always appreciated. You can break your dog of this problem behavior with a few simple training techniques. Check with your animal clinic near Campbell for advice, and watch this video for more information.

As any veterinarian will tell you, the best way to achieve behavior modification in dogs is to reward them for good behavior. When your dog jumps as a greeting, only give him or her attention when the jumping stops. Tell everyone who comes into your home that this is the rule. When your dog calms down, reward him or her with the attention he or she is seeking. Giving a treat can also make behavior modifications in dogs go faster, so you achieve the polite greetings you want more quickly.
