STOP jumping up!

STOP jumping up!


Jumping up. Teach your dog what you want
them to do instead of jumping up first! Move away from your dog and click him as
he comes towards you BEFORE he jumps. Then put a treat on the floor so he will
anticipate the reward coming from the ground and not above as he figures out
what you want. You can delay the click to after the dog reaches you and calmly
stands instead of jumping. If the dog were to jump up simply ignore the dog
and take a step to the side to get their paws off of you. Here you can see I’m
moving away from Bogart and as he comes towards me I’m going to click and then feed
from the ground near my feet. The point behind this is teaching him what I do
want him to do instead of jumping. Which is coming towards me and stand calmly.
Now that you’ve taught your dog what you do want them to do when they come
towards you which is to keep all 4 feet on the floor now when you ignore them
when they jump up they have an alternative behavior that they can offer
which is the one that you’ve just reinforced. Here you can see that when I
ignored Bogart jumping up on me he offered a behavior that we’d reinforced
before which was a down and then later on he offers a sit instead of jumping up. Proofing.
Proof your dog to not jump up in all situations by setting up training
sessions in which you do all the things that might cause your dog to jump up. You
can have your dog on leash and click them while someone else does jump
provoking behaviors or work on your own. You will at first be clicking as the
person does the behavior and when your dog is succeeding clicking after the dog
has stood calmly during the distraction. Set your dog up to succeed. If your dog
is becoming too excitable go back a step to doing much calmer movements or just
standing still. Here I’m doing some proofing with a goldendoodle puppy named
Murphy I’m clicking as I open the door rather than seeing what will happen if I
just waltz on in. Since he’s doing so well I’m going to make the greeting more exciting. “Oh my goodness what a cute puppy! Of course you’re going to
be perfect in the video…” of course. That’s to prevent the dog getting aroused and jumping if someone acts fearfully. “Oh I
have this cool toy!” Good boy! S o what you would do when guests come
over and you don’t have a clicker but you grab a handful of treats. Then they
come in and you can just drop treats If you are saying hi to the guests you can drop treats as you are talking to them. “Nice to meet you” As they pet him you can just keep
putting the treats down on the ground. Make sure that you don’t get into the habit of
ignoring a jump and then immediately reinforcing the dog for sitting is they
can learn to first get your attention by jumping and then doing the behavior you
like. Here are some tips .1 – Teach your dog what you want them to do instead of
jumping up first. 2 – Don’t reinforce jumping up with attention 3 – Proof
by creating situations your dog will want to jump up in, so the dog
generalizes the behavior. 4- Prevent jumping when you’re not in the mood to
train your dog by having your dog on leash or in his pen.

  1. I appreciate so much your videos ! Thank you for taking your time and sharing with those of us who have doggies who need manners. I am thankful for your time

  2. Thanks for your great video's! How do i prevent my 1 year old newf (50 kg) jumping up to other people???? He is so sweet but makes people scared of him when he jumps up….. I hope you can help me, everybody recommend shock collar but i just will not use that!

  3. Hello, I'm definitely not Kikopup, but I think I can kind of help you out on this one.
    The trick is to set your dog up for success. Start small. Have someone call him towards themselves with a clicker in hand, and have them click while the dog is coming towards them, not already jumping up. Reward the absence of jumping. Practice that, then raise criteria. Add another person, place treats on the ground when all four of his feet are on the ground.

  4. Tnx for youre awnser! Problem is he only does it to people he don't know! He runs up to them and jumps when they throw theire hands in the air. I schout, put youre hands down! But when they are scared, they won't listen. So it's a hard situation… I'm gonna try this one, and hope it will work! Tnx!

  5. What shall i do my dog doesnt like treats i know i may sound a lil bit strange but he doesnt like anythinh but chocolate which is very bad for him any other way he can learn or anything

  6. The top two reasons a dog doesn't take treats= stress or the treat isn't rewarding enough for your dog. Try different foods- most dogs love real meats, cheeses, sausage..the same sort of stuff we like. Shredded chicken or turkey is a healthy option and just use a small amount. Most dogs don't really like processed dried treats all that much. Also look at his main diet- is he getting too much? Is it too high value- why train for treats when he gets good stuff for free! Use his main diet to train!

  7. Also use things in the environment he wants e.g. getting to smell a nice smelly post, play, praise, a stick, a toy- if he wants it, use it! What kikopup has done here can be done with toys and praise just as easily 🙂

  8. he only likes three things on earth me , his teady bear and wtv i am eating he never eats his food some times he eats sausages hot dogs he like luttes cucumbers is it wired for a dog to eat vigge's ? hes too spoiled and hes 3 years old do yu think i can train him at this age ? thanks a lot for ur reply

  9. Petsmart, PetCo, and Amazon all have clickers for sale. They can range from under a dollar to several dollars. If your dog is scared of the loud click, there are quieter clickers available.

  10. Ummm, is a dog some kind of robot that can only eat kibble, a dry processed "food" created only around 1940 (75,000+ years after dogs became domesticated)? How come it's assumed every animal in the universe, including humans, will eat normal food… except for dogs and cats? My TV-star dogs and cat eat raw meat mixed with cooked veggies. Dogs that eat kibble are lucky to live 11-13 years. Dogs that eat real, natural, foods frequently live to 17. I see this everywhere I travel outside the U.S.

  11. Im going to try this on my new toy poodle pup.. but what if im sitting down on the floor she jumps at me as well what do i do??

  12. Dragongirl, you got lucky, and obviously are taking good care of your dogs for them to live to that age. I also had a dog live to 16 on kibble… but I bet he could have lived to 18+ on real food. You only have to look at the numbers. In a huge Purina feeding study that studied thousands of families feeding their dogs various Purina & ProPlan foods for life, not a single dog lived past 13, and only a handful made it past 12. European (non-kibble) dogs live far longer than most American dogs.

  13. That puppy is ADORABLE! FINALLY, a trainer that offers more than "turn your back to the dog". Great tips BTW. I'm going to do this for my dog.

  14. Nope, once the dog fully understands the trick (in diff situations with diff people) you can just give verbal praise and a food reward. The clicker is just for initial learning.

  15. You only use the clicker to teach the behaviour and you gradually use less treats. I've found it very practical.

  16. It is very practical, because when you start to sometimes use treats and sometimes not, you actually strengthen the behaviour, not decrease it…

  17. so.. what if my dog jump and bite my clothes all the time? i mean, he pulls my shirt out of control, 🙁 could this technique works?

  18. Just curious do you find the dog whisperers methods of training dogs is bad. i see his methods and i can see maybe a person who uses the clicker method would disagree. i just dont get rewarding a dog with a treat if he hasn't done anything isn't that like a parent spoiling a kid. like ill buy you that video game if you clean you're room. i really enjoyed your video and im highly considering getting a dog and i just dont want to get a dog, i want to raise him to be a well discipline dog.

  19. I would love to see a video that starts out going from a dog that is really jumping up. So we can see the progress and more of how the technique is applied. Also so there is more opportunity to see how you react and when you reward after the jump up. Still great video.

  20. you are great! Your explanations about all the principles you use are really clear and your "interventions" are beautifully consistent!

  21. My husky is the same age/weight. He's a jumper too- leaves big scratches on us, and I am reluctant to take him anywhere right now!

  22. Hi, can u please advice me i have bought a 8 week Gsd, could u advice me some of the first things to train him? He offers the default sit position. He comes on call. But he jumps on me and has bites or mouths. Also generally speaking how much do i spend on one behaviour? Is it advicable to mix training him for two behaviours at one time like jumping n biting? Please help

  23. The clicker is an actual tool that looks like a box with a metal plate inside that you push to make a consistent clicking noise. The sound is consistent and can be made instantly so the dog always knows that that specific sound is associated with good behavior (make sure you "charge" your clicker first which is shown in another vid). I found mine for $2 at Petco

  24. there is a dog my sons girl has, puggle, and he is so happy to see me he jumps on me first thing, if he is ignored, he pounces me. I dont know why, he doesnt act that way with everyone. He loves me. trouble is, He is fat. Eats like alot. so we are careful not to give him treats. so, what then.

  25. Hi kikopup, I'm trying you method because my dog jump much, now he stopped jumping… but only when I have treats. When I have not meal he continues jumping and trying bite my hands, he not bite or jump when I have food, what can I do?  🙁

  26. Hey Kiko, I just adopted a 2.5 yo American bulldog mix. He's pretty much the most perfect dog, except for his one flaw: Jumping. He's 75 lb, and only jumps when people come in the front door. I tried to clicker train, but the clicker would give me migraines, so I use a vocal cue ("Good!") in place of a click. 

    Since he doesn't jump up when excited like the puppy in the video (in fact, he automatically sits since I make him sit before playing), how would I go about reinforcing the behavior I want in a similar situation? Would I skip straight to the proofing stage, and walk through the door while putting treats on the ground? I'm not sure how well that would work.

    Whenever anyone comes over, I keep him in a sit/stay (both of which he has down perfectly) until he's calmed down enough to greet them calmly. This doesn't work when I'm the one coming into the house, though.

    My main problem is that I have a pain disorder (RSD), and him jumping on me often causes a bad flare, which makes me zone out for a few moments, which messes up my timing and makes it difficult to reinforce the good behavior correctly, and I don't have anybody else who would be willing to let him jump on them for training purposes. 

    He's in training to be in training to be a service dog (aka still doing basic obedience), and will likely be able to take and pass the CGC in a couple of months. Perhaps less. After that he'll have his In Training vest, and will be doing public access work. While he has yet to jump on anyone in public, I'm worried he may develop that habit, which is a big no-no for a service dog. 

    I'd really appreciate any advice you or any of your viewers can give me. He's a truly incredible dog, but he's not aware of his own strength, and occasionally draws blood with his jumping, even though I keep his nails well clipped and filed. Any help that can be given is greatly appreciated.

    Your videos have been a total god-send. Please keep doing what you've been doing. You're one of my Real Life Heroes for doing this.

    Cheers,
    Lindsay

  27. Isn't leaving out of the door and then coming right back in and clicking and rewarding only teaching the puppy to sit and wait at the door when some one leaves? That may cause anxiety issues if continued because the puppy may expect you to come right back but in essence you may be gone for hours

  28. ^^ nice. I'm a dogtrainer in france.I use exactly the same method and it works perfectcly.  Its great to see how much fun the trainer is having, the dog feels that and learns a lot better when he'splayfull. Some of my clients think i'm nuts with all the squeaming and all but who cares the dogs like it.

  29. Hi, first off I would like to say that I love your videos and your manner of training.  I have a 15 month old Cairn Terrier and a 21 month old GSD, both are females.  I am having a hard time teaching both of my girls how to have better door manners.  My GSD always jumps at the back door slider when she wants to come in, she won't bark or just sit there, she'll jump, scratching the glass.  Do you have a video that can help me teach my girl not to jump on the door to come in?  Thank you!

  30. Not to be mean, respectfully saying. It seems as though the dog is following you for a treat and not a command not to jump. I simply, do a no touch, talk, when I enter and I wait until the dog is calmed before I give attention. I also gently push away the dog and i give a command no and the dog is fine. But do what works for you and your followers.. Thank you for showing an alternative. But still, a dog is a handfull and dedication and exercise, discipline and affection is a key to providing a stable life for your dog. Also look into the dog's breed because some breeds have jumping in their genes from centuries ago. But you must determine what's best. Have a super good day.

  31. I just got a puppy a couple of days ago and i found out that if your dog wakes you up so early and then won't stop bugging you just use a phone or tablet so then the dog won't get attention and will stop because it is so early and I am doing this right now

  32. Why would you want him to stop that ? Thats how you know if he wants to tell you something or wants something. Plus i love it.

  33. My dog has learned this fast when she was younger, but later his emotions and people giving her attention make her to dislearn. I insist ignoring her when she jumps, but she keeps doing it. Only sometimes, not all the time when we interact.
    Anyone has an advice to make her learn it properly again?

  34. THANK YOU SO MUCHHH! my golden retriever puppy barely jumps anymore he only jumps when he is very hyper.KikoPup you have helped me a lot and I trust you,you have earned a new subscriber 🙂

  35. How does this transfer over to a dog already jumping up on a toddler? I'm afraid he won't generalize me and my husband training him to stop jumping on the toddler

  36. Out of all the videos I have watched these are the most helpful and really lists things down for you. Our puppy is slowly getting older and although we have taken her to training she still jumps up and nibbles or bits at people, especially me. I hope to find something that will work.

  37. hi everyone ,if anyone else needs to find out about training a puppy try Wiltapar Top Dog Secrets (just google it ) ? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my neighbor got amazing results with it.

  38. Everyone is so impressed with my dogs behavior/skills and I always give the credit to you!!! Thanks and love from Colorado.

  39. i was so tired of our lilly biting us all the time and then i used a few tips i learned from the https://twitter.com/deanhenderson22/status/740880994295644160
    — videos. it was like night and day; worked so well…..

  40. Will be sending this to a client after our session tomorrow! Do you ever drop the treats on the ground (versus bending to drop them)?

  41. It's an another great site for how to train your dog.I tried it and it worked perfectly. It helps me connect with my dog even more and she understands me. you can also try it. just search google; "galid dog training"

  42. goldendoodles are a cross bred not a Breed Please refer to then as what hey are. A corssbred designer dog.

  43. It can be easier than this.

    If your dog jumps, tell him to sit. Once he has sat down and is looking at you, tell him good boy (or girl) then pet them.

    If your dog knows how to sit, it's that simple.

    I've never used treats to reward my dogs, not even a clicker. Yet, they've been the most obedient and happy dogs I've ever seen- using discouragement techniques when they're doing bad behaviours, and giving them praise when they've done what I've directed them to do.

    Treats are fine and all, but I want my dog to respect me for my position as alpha- not because I'm a treat giver. There's a difference between a dog who respects you and dog who does something for food treats.

  44. Why use a clicker at all? Impromptu training needs to happen wherever and whenever you're around the dog and you won't always have it on you. Why not instead learn to use your voice (or snapping your fingers) in place of the clicker? Then you don't need to transition the dog away from the clicker.

  45. "Only a short note to thank you such a great amount for your commitment and demonstrable skill. We picked up such a great amount from the essential training course thus did Libby!! [Go Here=== https://plus.google.com/116276972682309099869/posts/NSAw3V4dNXJ ] It has had a tremendous effect to every one of us, she appears to be such a cheerful, settled little pup now, on account of you, you're training techniques and direction."

  46. That puppy is so adorable! To everyone who doesn't get it; once the puppy understands he's supposed to stay on the ground, you fade out the clicks and treats. Eventually you get to the point where the reward for staying put is just the greeting itself, and perhaps verbal praise or getting petted. You don't stay dependent on the clicker and treats for the rest of the dog's life. So many people think that you'll always need to keep rewarding every few seconds.

  47. Interesting approach, I always read that you should not make a big deal of leaving/coming back as that's setting up puppy for separation anxiety.

  48. I don't treat train my dogs because they beco.e dependent on treats. I rather pet or say good boy/girl. Affection is better than over treating them imo

  49. 一樣教狗不撲人
    艾蜜莉仍是技高一籌
    首先引導狗做對的事~四腳著地
    然後加入人進門或表現害怕
    所謂的加重干擾練習
    重看這支影片心想自己該跟著調整

  50. I have a full grown coonhound and a small entry way, I can't even get in the door to put treats on the floor before he starts jumping, are there other methods I can try?

  52. What if my dog only jump on people from outside the house like strangers or friend comming over how do I trained

  53. It didn't work instead she got frustrated and started barking xD this is the only thing I'm bad at teaching. I think I might have been doing it wrong cause it didn't work and I need her to stop cause she's my service dog in training so she needs this

  54. I absolutely love all your videos! What do you use for treats that you can use for rapid rewards? 🙂 I use real food a lot but it doesn't work that great for dropping on the floor or rapid rewards.

  55. If the owner does not mind, I add translation of this wonderful video into Russian for non-English speaking owners. If this comment is inappropriate please delete.

    Прыжки.

    Вначале научите собаку тому, что вы хотели бы, чтобы она делала вместо прыжков. Отойдите от собаки и кликните, когда собака приблизится к вам, но ДО того, как она прыгнет. Бросьте кусочек на пол, чтобы собака ожидала поощрения внизу, а не вверху. Когда собака поймет, чего вы от нее хотите, выдержите паузу и кликайте уже после того, как собака постоит спокойно рядом с вами несколько секунд. Если собака все же собирается прыгнуть, игнорируйте это действие и отодвиньтесь в сторону, чтобы она не поставила на вас лапы.

    Видеоряд: Здесь я отхожу от собаки, кликаю ей, когда она подбегает ко мне и кормлю с пола. Суть в том, чтобы сейчас научить его тому, что я хочу, чтобы он делал вместо прыжков – подойти ко мне и спокойно стоять. После того, как вы обучили собаку тому, что вы от нее хотите – стоять всеми четырьмя лапами на полу, когда она к вам подходит, – у нее появится альтернативный вариант поведения, которое собака сможет предложить вам, если вы будете игнорировать ее прыжки. На видео вы видите, что когда я проигнорировала прыжки собаки, он начал предлагать поведение, которое я подкрепляла раньше – ложиться, потом садиться – вместо прыжков.

    Провокации.

    Перенесите упражнение в другие ситуации, в которых собака может на вас прыгать. Можно держать собаку на поводке и кликать собаке в то время, когда кто-нибудь провоцирует вашу собаку на прыжки, или работать самостоятельно. Вначале следует кликать ВО ВРЕМЯ провокации, а позже, когда у собаки начнет получаться не реагировать на провокации, – после того, как собака спокойно постоит во время отвлечения. Помогите собаке избежать ошибок; если собака легко возбудима, вернитесь к более спокойным движениям или просто стоянию.

    Видео:

    На видео я делаю провокацию со щенком. Я кликаю ВО ВРЕМЯ того, как открываю дверь, а не жду, что будет, если я просто войду.

    Когда приходят гости, нужно иметь под рукой мисочку с кормом и разбрасывать кусочки в прихожей. Если гости начнут гладить пса, нужно продолжать выкладывать корм на пол.

    Старайтесь не выработать у себя привычку игнорировать прыжок и сразу же поощрять спокойное сидение собаки, потому что у собаки сформируется связка: Вначале надо привлечь внимание прыжком, а ПОТОМ предложить то поведение, которое вам нравится.

    СОВЕТЫ:

    1. ВНАЧАЛЕ обучите собаку желаемому действию

    2. Не поощряйте прыжки вниманием

    3. Для обобщения создайте провокационные ситуации, в которых собака прыгает на вас

    4. Когда вы не в настроении заниматься, не давайте собаке прыгать, удерживая ее поводком или в манеже (клетке)
