I noticed your comment on the pups still having the tendency of 'jumping' up and saying HI. I have the same situation with my 8-m-old black. She is sooooo happy to meet/greet and its hard to keep her on all 4 wheels. My friends actually have better results than I do......something I have to keep working on I guess. i'll let you know when I produce significant results!!

I found if you put your knee up in the air to hold them back will do the trick over time!!

Thanks for the intell. I agree….I use the knee / leg trick but its hard to tell others to do the same. You know the story….they wave their hands and push her down but that can simply make the same behavior repeat itself. On the other hand, it is strictly an initial greeting behavior and in less than a minute…..she is done. I guess consistency on my part will be most important…..as with all training.

From a dog trainers point of view, use the word "off" when you don't want them to jump. "Off" can also work for off the couch, bed,counters etc. Off means 4 on the floor. When teaching the "come command" also teach them to come and sit in front of you. This teaches them to approach people and sit in front of them. Hope this helps.

This is what a dog trainer shared with me. My dog has never been a jumper so I'm not sure how well it works.

I agree with mnuser this is how I trained my dogs and it works great ,after a few times of doing this they wont even jump up on you if you ask them to.I have shown other people this and it worked right away on thier dogs. You just have to hold a little bit till they start to squirm and try to pull away.A old farmer by my house showed me this trick when one of my dogs jumped up on him .
