Training Tip

Does your dog jump to greet you still??? It could be you are using the wrong reinforcement.  Understand the dog's behavior for jumping to greet you.

In a dog's world, it is instinctual to greet another dog by coming nose-to-nose with them. This allows them to sniff each other's faces and become acquainted with the other dog's scent. Of course, your nose is a bit higher to reach so it is only natural that your dog will jump up to get closer to your face when greeting you. This can be quiet annoying and unnecessary, but fortunately, the habit can be broken.

As a trainer, I have seen dogs respond differently to the exact same training methods such as redirecting to a sit, ignoring the bad behavior, reinforcing the good behavior. This begs the question; what is it the dog really wants? British Trainer Kay Lawrence has a fresh new look at an old problem... I can't help but agree with in my own dog household. She has an interesting view that dogs wish to reconnect to us when we return and we have to figure out the best way for that to happen.


Here is a copy from a blog by Kay Lawence. I just love this! 

 
"Greeting or re-uniting after being apart, should be indulgent, sincere and full of affection, but not crazy arousal and high pitch celebration. This is setting the dog up for exuberant jumping and barking. Their arousal is understandable if they have been alone for several hours, the solitary situation has ended which is a reason to jump for joy. Make sure both your hands are free of shopping or coats or keys, take hold of the dog by the collar to prevent getting a black eye, and bend over to calmly offer proximity to your face for some "air-licking".

At my home, I touch each of my dogs when I return home without speaking, though briefly, to prevent them from jumping. I have recently formed the habit of letting them smell my hair or face. I keep calm but let them know "we're ok" as Kay describes in her book, Every Dog, Every Day. 

Leash Reactivity! Why Some Dogs Growl & How to Prevent It!

The first thing to recognize is that despite how it looks, nearly all reactivity is rooted in fear. When your dog acts aggressively, he is able to keep other dogs and their people away, and that's what he wants. Off-leash, a dog could run away. On-leash, a dog is trapped and acts aggressively to protect himself.

The second most frequent reason for reactivity is frustration. Some dogs pull and bark on-leash when they want to get to another dog to play. You will often see dogs frustrated behind a fence as well, when a dog can't get to what's on the other side. However, we tend to assign this reason to our dogs more often than we should. We prefer seeing our dog as wanting to play, instead of acting from fear.

In our Reactive Dog Private Training Classes we work on five aspects of on-leash dog-on-dog aggression. Use these as a blueprint for how you can work with your own dog.

  • Changing your dog's emotional response to other dogs
  • Management techniques: to prevent your dog from practicing the behavior to remove your dog quickly and easily from something unexpected
  • Distraction and fun on walks to help your dog focus less on the outside world
  • Owner confidence: You learn and practice what to do and are less anxious with your dog in public
  • Reducing your dog's overall arousal level
  • Equipment that can help keep your dog from pulling (without using choke, prong or electronic collars)

It's not easy living with a reactive dog. It may even be embarrassing. But you clearly love your dog and want the best for him. Remember that your dog doesn't like this behavior either. He is trying the best way he knows how to cope. So, whatever your dog has been through in the past, your dog is lucky to have you now. After all, you are looking for help.
