During the process of teaching the animal not to jump, there are other behaviors that must be addressed also. The reason why, is that those behaviors are very important to being able to control the animal. Teaching the pet to sit and stay is more important than many people imagine. There are so many lessons that are made much easier for both dog and owner by simply training the pet to fully obey the heel, sit and stay commands.
Another very helpful command to teach pets, especially puppies and long-term energetic dogs, is the most important personal command for responding to your call to come near. So many younger and less seasoned pets tend to run off and not much care about many of the commands of their owner. Until this is under control, full obedience may not be accomplished because the animal may still be in the stage of trying to exert dominance.
To stop a dog from jumping requires your clear understanding of how the dog is as an individual. The dog’s character can definitely have an impact on how to teach it to obey your orders and respond as you desire. For example: if you know of a sound or visual action that will get the pet’s attention during the command, it may be a good idea to incorporate both the verbal and visual action at the same time.
With the right approach, the training will work out just fine.
