Help my dog is jumping up on people

Dogs who jump on people do this because they are excited and because they have learned not to respect the person. It is a clear sign that the dog does not accept that person as his pack leader. The dog learns this level of excitement, as well as the disrespect from the human.

It is an unbalanced human behavior that is not accepted in this way by the nature of the dog. Under circumstances, the jumping can trigger a fight among conspecifics.

People often interpret this excitement as an expression of joy, which, however, is a mistake.

Much like a child, a dog also needs rules, boundaries, and limitations so he can live out his instincts as balanced as possible and develop naturally.

It is up to us humans to fulfill the role of the pack leader. Only then we can teach our dogs a calm behavior and demand it from then at the appropriate moment.

At Thimba you will learn how to fulfill the task of the pack leader.

Learn how to create rules, boundaries, and limitations and how to put them in practice so your dog – and also you – can live a calm, relaxed, and balanced life.
