So with all due respect, if you cannot even teach your dog not to jump up or obey a sit command, why are you on the training forum giving advice?

then i would remove him from the situation so he doesn't self-reward and make the behavior stronger.

Excuse me?

Yes, he does obey a sit command. But when people are around he gets too excited, and you know one training tactic may work better for some than others. In Reggins case, he dislikes getting the cold shoulder when he is jumping for attention. Turning and ignoring has worked quite well for us, in fact, that is the very reason why I gave advice. A little something I've seen done by Victoria Stilwell.

And please tell me why I should not give advice when something has worked for us.

He quits jumping when people ignore his behavior, so I do not have to remove him. We have worked on that for a while now, and he has very much improved. Now he just wiggles about with the tail going.

my puppy has this problem.we are still in the learning phase and we tried the turn our back trick, that has no effect on her.

I saw a episode of victoria stillwells where she was helping train a jumper, she had a leash on the dog, brought in a visitor, and the dog jumped , the second the dog did this she took the dog out,(away from everyone) waited for dog to be calm, went back in the room, dog jumped , repeat. and after I think she said 10 minutes of doing this the dog finally stopped.

so I decided to do give this a try and it does work, only thing LOL is I have to do it to each individual person. Its almost like she says "oh well I cant jump on dad but hey this person is fair game"
this is why I said she is learning. This tech. definatly works, I guess it boils down to consistancy.

if we are out for a walk or something, I step on the leash, while she is in sit, so if she gets the urge, she cant jump.

I understand where you're coming from, Reggin, in that jumping on people combine two of my dog's favorite activities - jumping and meeting new people - and she may be too distracted to respond to the treat. Or rather, she will likely sit down briefly when given the command, then ignore the treat. I think I may try getting some yummy treats that she doesn't usually get to have, and asking the other person to give her the treat when she sits, and then resume petting her so long as she stays seated. I used the "unique" treat method when crate training her (deli turkey slices in her kong) and it worked really well. I'm hoping if I combine it with ignoring her when she jumps, it will eventually sink in that she needs all four paws on the ground. I'll let you know how it goes!

In this case attention from the person the dog wants to jump on is usually a good enough reward, always remember to have the person calmly reward the dog for not jumping/sitting and never touch the dog when he is being jumpy.

I love that show, and I've learned a lot from it. If you notice, she uses several different methods. Some methods work for some dogs and others do not. It depends on the dog and how severe the issue is. I've seen her remove dogs several times before, and it does work quite well a lot of times.

From this I interpret that your dog jumps uncontrollably on people when they enter your house, and will not obey a sit command under distraction.

You did not post that ignoring your dog works for you until after my and elegy's post.

In my experience in training dogs, for ME, ignoring this sort of behavior does not work. Maybe it does for some people, however, I have big dogs, and I cannot have them jumping all over people while I instruct them to "ignore it".

I also did not realize that you have ANY experience in training dogs.

I wish you the best of luck with whatever works the best for you. Reggin has a big issue with ignoring tasty treats. Its when he is denied attention is what really kills him, and he will do ANYTHING for attention. lol.
