Hello, again, everyone. Today we're discussing how to stop your pug jumping up on you.
When dogs greet each other, they get 'nose to nose'. Sometimes they exchange a lick on the face, ears, or neck. They then try to sniff each other's privates.
This is normal canine behavioral. Your dog just does not understand why his humans do not share his enthusiasm for this type of greeting.
This conduct normally starts out in puppy hood, when the pup jumps up to say hello and get closer to the people he liked.
A pug jumping up and barking is simply part of the dog's greeting ritual. The problem is that puppies are just so darn cute.It is easy to overlook this invasion of space when it is a cute little pug jumping up on you. What is not very cute is when this little puppy has just returned from outside with muddy feet and you are going to a business meeting in your best suit.
Your puppy does not know the difference between nice, expensive clothing and old sweat pants.
A face like this is what pug owners look forward to at the end of a long day. It’s nice to know that you have an enthusiastic greeting waiting for you as soon as you walk in the door! Of course, it might have something to do with the fact that it’s almost dinner time.
Over zealous greetings are often shown to the owner, family, and friends and even to people, they don't know you meet at the park.
Small children and old folks may become seriously injured.When you have the pug jumping up to welcome you and then you give her attention you are essentially rewarding her for this behavior.
All of us are taller than them so they have to jump up. Once the habit has become entrenched it will be a lot more difficult to stop your pug jumping up on you.
1.0 The dog is happy to see its owner or other visitors.
2.0 The dog may be wanting to establish his authority over those entering his territory.
3.0 He may just be bored.
4.0 Pugs live for attention any attention. When you respond to your pug jumping up by stroking and hugging them, then you can't be expecting them to understand that it's not okay to jump on others.
5.0 The pug will associate jumping up with receiving praise. It will be puzzling to your dog if you let them jump up on you, but reprimand them on other occasions. Dogs can't tell when you are in play time and when you are not.
It’s embarrassing if your dog constantly jumps up on people.Unfortunately, strangers will not often tell you that they don't appreciate your dog's enthusiasm. You need to know how to prepare your dog before you greet people to stop unwanted jumping.
Make homecoming, as boring and uneventful as possible.
Reduce the amount of excitement related to this event will also help to settle your dog quickly.
If you are having guests around remember that a tired dog will have less energy to jump on guests. Plan lots of exercise close to the time you expect your guests to arrive. This is a great way to get your children involved and give you time for those last-minute details before entertaining.
