It may be cute when your puppy jumps up on you because she’s so excited to see you and loves you so much. But this quickly stops being cute when it’s an 80-pound dog knocking you (or your friends) to the floor in his excitement. So how do you get your pooch to stop jumping? It really only involves two things – praise and consistency.
First off, you can’t successfully teach your dog not to jump on others when you let him jump on you. So the first step, is to train him to stay down when you’re around.
1. Turn your back to your dog when you come in the door and he jumps up on you. Wait until he stops jumping and say, “Good!” offering praise the moment he stops jumping.
2. Say, “Sit!” and don’t acknowledge him with a touch or word until he sits. Offer affection at this point, and be consistent!
3. Practice not jumping with friends once your dog has mastered this with you. If he jumps say, “Off!” in a firm voice and then make him Sit. Have your friends offer praise and treats for good behavior.
4. Anticipate jumping situations and have your dog Sit before he can jump, or redirect his attention elsewhere.
5. Consistently praise your pooch when he doesn’t jump. He wants to please you, and this will be a big motivator for him.

“People who love cats have some of the biggest hearts around.” – Susan Easterly
Quinn is a very sweet medium-haired gray tabby. She is two-years-old and her original owner had to give her up because she had too many pets and felt she would do better in a quieter household. While a bit shy at first, she’ll open up with a little petting. She’d really love to meet you.
Pepper was left behind when his owner passed away and the family put him outside. It’s definitely their loss. Pepper is a wonderful boy. He is about eight-years-old and is a shorthaired black kitty with white on his stomach. He is very quiet and thoughtful, and also very loving. He’s been really great with the other cats. Could you possibly provide Pepper’s second forever home?
Nikita, a sweet and friendly shorthaired white and gray kitty, had her life disrupted when her owner ran into personal problems and had to relinquish her. She was a favorite in the cat room because she gets along with everyone – cats and humans alike. Nikita has tabby marks and is about eight-years-old. She’s waiting to give all her love to her forever human. Maybe it’s you.
