Change Your Thinking

REWARD THE BEHAVIORS YOU WANT TO TEACH, instead of punishing the behaviors you want to stop. For example, if your dog jumps up on you to greet you and you would prefer he keep ‘four on the floor’, find a way to reward your dog while he is “grounded” and BEFORE he jumps up on you. For very exuberant dogs, you may need to teach your dog to sit while he greets you.
