A common problem dog owners have is that their dog jumps up on people. We trained Loki from a very early age not to jump up on anyone. There are many ways of training a dog not to jump up, but I'm going to share the method that we used.
Every time your dog jumps up on you, simply step forward into the dog. This will make the dog lose his balance and automatically put his paws back on the ground. Tell all your family members, friends, and visitors to step forward every time the dog jumps on on them. Your dog will learn that he accomplishes nothing by jumping up. You do not need to scold or verbally reprimand. Additionally, teach your dog what he is supposed to do instead. For instance, you can ask your dog to sit. After all four paws are on the ground, give the command to sit, and then offer attention and/or a treat. Consistency and patience are the key components in training. Don't expect an overnight change. Try it a couple weeks before you decide whether or not the method is working for you.
