Banjo is a super good dog most of the time. But we STILL have a problem with her jumping up on people. She has gotten a bit better - she used to go completely nuts when we just got her. She barely ever jumps up on us anymore, nor on our regular visitors (like the neighbour across the road and her daughter who comes over for playdates often). I can usually prevent her from jumping up on random people we meet when we are out walking now. But she still catches me by suprise sometimes with a quick jump when I think she is just passing them. And visitors to our house are fair game, as well as when we go visiting people.
I have not been dealing with the problem very well lately. I tend to yell, which I know is a total no-no but I sometimes just react impulsively and there is that need to be seen to respond by other people.
So I need to start again in a more constructive manner. I will start the front door training as soon as I have been able to find a willing victim to practice with - not easy. But I get that bit. It's those first 10-15 mins after the guests have arrived (or we at their house) that I need to find a better strategy for. I have not trained her to go to her place - and I am not overly motivated about that one right now. Asking her to sit or drop doesn't work when she gets so overexited. But I have had great results with LAT and I was wondering if I can adapt that to these situations or even just use it as I do in other situations? I do not want to give her the message that she cannot greet people though, so that's where the confusion lies.
I don't know if that made any sense to anyone else but me!
