The “How To Stop Your Dog From Jumping On People Drill” was taken from the Dog Training Planner. If your dog greets people with a “Jump Kiss”, you’ll love this dog training tip from Cesar Millan.

Your dog is probably a lot stronger than they think, so what they think is a harmless “Jump Kiss” could cause your guest an injury.

It can feel like a punch in the mouth to be hit with the dog’s head. If the person is a young child or elderly person, the Jump Kiss could end in a serious injury. That is why this simple dog training exercise is one that should be learned by everyone who has a dog. And it really is simple!

Sometimes the dog is so excited that it will do it to any human that passes by. To stop this you’ll need to create a “calm mind” within your dog and yourself.


The 4 Steps

If you scroll down a bit, you’ll see that I’ve written out all the steps from the video for you. I know. I know. I really am that nice (lol). Videos are great if you’re a visual learner! Most people learn dog training drills best by first watching a video tutorial, and then having the written steps available during the training session, so they don’t get confused (Hey, if you want to completely avoid confusion, you might like to get your paws on my Dog Training Planner).

To make this blog post a more pleasing visual experience for you, I’ve snuck in a humorous dog art comic panel that I created.

Stop Dog Jumping Obedience Drill

How To Stop Your Dog From Jumping On People

Step 1: Invite A Friend Over

Invite a friend over to your place to be the guinea pig.

Step 2: Shhhht

Put a lead on your dog.

Have your friend come into the room (or approach if you’re outside).

When your dog makes a move towards your friend, lightly tug on the lead to stop your dog while saying, “Shhhht”.

Do this each time your dog tries to move towards your friend.

Your friend could be enticing your dog towards themselves by excitedly saying, “Come here“, but keep doing the lead tug and Shhhht sound. Even if someone wants your dog to jump on them, you want to train them out of doing the jump (by following these steps).

Step 3: Relax

When your dog is excitedly trying to jump on someone, you will naturally become tense. It’s your job as a loving leader to remain calm.

Step 4: Family

Make sure every member of the family follows the “How To Stop Your Dog From Jumping On People” drill, or your dog will get anxious and confused.

Loving Leadership

Have a philosophy of loving leadership when training your dog.

Loving Leadership Dog Training Planner

As a loving leader, you should be constantly working on the communication pathways with your dog. At the bare minimum, your dog should also have some basic commands such as the lie-down command, sit command, and stay command.

When your dog knows a few basic dog obedience commands he or she will feel loved because they know what you want and have no anxiety or fear about what they should be doing and when.

Once your dog has a few commands under his or her belt (I mean, collar), practice behaviour dog training, command dog training and tricks dog training regularly to ensure your dog is physically and mentally healthy. As you are probably acutely aware, untrained dogs have a way of taking over the control of a home if not taught otherwise (which can be a nightmare). A trained dog, however, will bring years of doggie love to your household.
