Jumping up on people and objects is also a behavior that can and should be modified.

When your pet exhibits this behavior:

Do’s: Gently and respectively place puppy’s feet back on the floor and reward him there. Be consistent. Get down to his level to give affection.

Don’ts: Do not allow the pup to jump up. Do not pet, talk, cuddle or reward him for jumping. Do not give in. Do not allow other people to let him jump on them. Do not give up.
