Question Please help with jumping

I have a 5 month golden retriever/irish setter mix. I loves everyone. I has to say hi to everyone that we see. He's way of saying hi is to jump on them. About 2 months ago I started training him that the only way he will get attention is if he sits. I have told all of our visitors that to. For the most part is he is doing well with me. My husband comes home & Harley is jumping on him. My husband won't give him attention until sits but he still get jumped on. My visitor tell him to sit & he does until the people reaches down to pet him & then starts jumping again. I was talking him for a walk today and he jumped on 2 people. Everything else he's a fast learner. Do I keep doing as I am or is there any other advice?

Thanks

When he jumps on you, stick your knee out into his chest, as he jumps on you command "NO!", and he will back down from the pain of landing on your knee and he will associate jumping with bad things, and he will eventuall quit.

As for jumping on other people, get a friend that doesnt mind being jumped on, walk him as you would normally, have your friend walk by, when the dog jumps, you pull back on his leash and command "NO", also have your friend stick his knee out and command "NO" as well. Your dog learns that no matter who he jumps on, he will get a knee to the chest, which is painful when he lands on it, he can avoid it by not jumping.

Good luck.

I had the same problem with my dog when she was younger, harley. You are on the right track to fixing it, but you need to get a little more physical. As he starts to jump grab him by the collar and push back and down, say NO! Sit! as soon as he does, change your voice and say, good dog, good boy. make your voice pleasant but not squeaky, because squeaky excites them. Make sure you are absolutely consistent, and make sure visitors are too. NOONE is to pat him unless he's sitting and quiet. My dog jumps in the air around me and visitors when she really excited but she never touches us anymore. if she wants a pat she comes and sits. It's good because she even does it to kids too now, so we don't have to worry about her flattening our friends two year old.

While I'm not expert, I think there are more non-violent ways to teach him. Here's a link to one. http://www.canismajor.com/dog/clk9906.html

I'm sure you can find other ways by googling it. I really can't imagine why anyone would want to knee the dog that they love. Can you imagine what's going through the pup's mind when the owner he loves knees him. the pup is only trying to be respectful and friendly.
