Why does my dog jump on guests?

Best answers

When your dog has all four paws on the floor, give him attention and praise.

If he jumps up at any point, freeze with your arms folded on your chest until he calms down.

If you have visitors who ignore the no-jumping rules, keep your dog on leash during the visit and gently remove him if he jumps.
