Have a partner stand on the other side of the door and ring the door bell. Have your dog do as you've trained him: follow you to that spot, wait, and then you will open the door and tell the "visitor" that the dog is going to greet him/her. Then once you've closed the door, call your dog to the visitor and have him greet him/her. Hopefully at this time, you've already taught your dog not to jump on people! ;) Spend at least 5 minutes a day doing this training.
- Be consistent; you need to be the one to win.
- Control the situation at all times by interrupting the "bad" behavior. Do this by bringing the dog's focus to YOU.
- Anticipate the behavior.
- When your dog makes a mistake, don't stress! Just take a break and try again.
- Train all the time, just because.
- Reward Reward Reward!!
- Have fun with it!
