Understanding why your dog jumps is the first step in addressing this behavior effectively.
Teach and reinforce consistent commands like "sit" to redirect your dog's energy when they jump.
Use positive reinforcement to reward your dog when they greet people with all four paws on the ground.
Ignoring your dog when they jump and redirecting their attention to a toy or task can help discourage the behavior.
Consider using training aids like leashes or harnesses to discourage jumping during greetings.
Train your guests to ignore jumping and only reward your dog when they are calm and not jumping.
If the jumping behavior persists, consult a professional dog trainer for personalized guidance.
