Yes, I feel the same way about it being rude and have the same problem with many people. I've ignored her and it's worked somewhat with cutting down her jumping on me, but I haven't been able to ask people we barely know to do the same. I usually end up pulling her back by her leash as she is jumping so she doesn't make contact with them, but it doesn't teach her not to jump the next time. She is also very persistant with her jumping, and will jump several times even when ignored. Maybe I should stage situations with friends, in order to teach her better.
