Hi all. First post here on these forums.
I have a male Beagle, he's 8 months old.
He's a beautiful dog, well natured. The only issue is, that he jumps and won't stop!
I'm worried i've left it too late and should've trained him from a puppy to stop doing this.
I understand that he's excited, but it's rather annoying and frustrating.
He doesn't just jump up like most dogs, he launches himself, and with him being a bigger type of beagle, weighing 25kg, it's not the most exciting thing for us humans when he launches at us.
I'm currently trying the whole "when he jumps, turn your back to him" sort of thing, but it isn't really working, but I hope it does.
Is there any other things I can try ?
I really just want this to stop. I want visitors to be able to come over without being pounced on, it's rather embarrasing.
Thanks, any advice is greatly appreciated!
