    It looks too simple? Its aversion training, and lots of folks here are positive trainers only.
    I dont have jumpers, so cant test it, but lets hear what other people say who have jumpin dogs?
    I am a aversion user in my training. And dont have an issue with this technique.

    I have also used this, but I prefer other methods....I find that you have to be open-minded and use some different methods for different dogs/people..i prefer a more positive method that I have used with my rescue newfies and other dogs, but you have to have everyone be very diligent. I do agree with everything he said in the beginning, everyone has to be part of the training 100%

    Not quite sure if i would like the reaction that dog gives either....Poor dog, called up and forced to go down, very confusing for that dog. I am sure he could have found a jumper for the video..only have to go to a shelter

    I'm sorry, but I simply could not trust anyone who calls themselves "amazing dog training man".

    No idea really if the technique would work. And I agree that there is something a bit wrong about giving the dog a cue to jump up and then causing them discomfort when they do.

    I so sometimes invite Banjo to jump up to me (which she always does so much more gently than when I don't invite her!) and then ask her to get off and praise her. But that's just to teach her the 'off' cue.

    I don't really like this technique... my dogs don't jump but i can guarantee you that if they did, this technique wouldn't work for them.
    And in doing this you are probably making your dog not like you touching his feet, that can be a problem when you need to clip nails and stuff!
    When Koda was a pup if he jumped i just gave him a stern NO and then turned my back and waited for him to calm down and sit next to me before he got any more attention, it worked really well for him
    I much prefer this technique

    I was thinking that the technique he was using could cause aggression? I mean he is holding it against his will. Even if he isnt *hurting or using force* I don't think i agree with it even though it does seem like an easy way.

    If you hold Banjo's feet, she will just gnaw at your hands until you let go.

    I had to watch it without audio so I only got the see the little demo and the fat man flapping his mouth.

    Is he pinching the dogs feet or just holding them?

    If he is just holding them and throwing them downwards... Well that's what I do with my dogs, although I usually make them sit straight afterwards.

    He says he doesn't use any force he just holds

    Might work for some i guess. Anythings better than kneeing the dog in the chest like a saw a wanker do one day.
