All 4 on the floor!

Here is a clip on how to teach your dog not to jump on you. The reason they do this is because they are trying to greet you in a happy fashion in their own language.  When other dogs greet each other (if they know each other already) one will often times lick the lips of the other.  In their world this is polite. Well your lips are so much farther away than most dogs, so in order to get to them they have to jump! The only problem is that we don't find it as polite as they do. (one thing to notice in this clip is that even though I highly recommend teaching only one dog at a time in this clip I have multiple dogs that are offering polite behavior and I am clicking and treating each of them and they are all well mannered. ) These two, by the way are well known for jumping on me and others (which is why I was working with them)
