There are two approaches you may take to this quite common drawback.
Both will work. One is extra work than the opposite. And a few individuals say one is extra mild and humane than the opposite.
You have to to decide on one method and constantly apply it.
(1) Use your knee
That is the one which even non-dog homeowners find out about.
The canine comes as much as you, quivering with pleasure. He rears as much as place his paws in your abdomen or chest. You flip sideways simply earlier than he is ready to put his paws on you, and lift your knee so he meets a tough, pointed-but-blunt object. After hanging on that for a second or two he drops to the bottom. You win.
There are a few further issues you are able to do at this level.
You possibly can train him that he will get a nice reception when his 4 ft are on the bottom, by squatting down subsequent to him when he has dropped off your knee and giving him quite a lot of consideration and fuss.
And if he will get his paws in your earlier than you may elevate your knee, then do all the pieces you may to seem uninterested. Do not reward your canine in any means. (and meaning not pushing him away together with your arms, as that is an fulfilling sport for any canine. Do not speak to him. Ignore him. make what he needs to be a sport, a particular non-event.
OK. that is the knee within the chest. However there’s an alternate.
(2) Use your arms
When the canine jumps up, this second method has you catching maintain of his legs with each arms — and standing there. His leap has all of a sudden bought ‘frozen’. Nothing is occurring. There was no response. As a substitute, he is been caught and may’t do something!
Hold him like that. Maintain on to him and do not transfer. Draw this out. Make it linger for so long as you may. Speak to him if you wish to, however maintain him up.
Most canine, after a while, will begin to slobber in your arms. That is your sign — drop him. Laborious. Do not decrease him to the bottom, however somewhat, let him go abruptly.
Then, when he is down on the bottom squat down there with him and provides him the encouraging, fulfilling time he hoped for by leaping up a couple of moments earlier.
This fashion he learns that the most effective response from you is at all times when he is on his 4 legs!
