When your dog is doing something you don't like, teach it do do something else. Sits, down, stays, and the other skills we teach our dogs are all what we call "incompatible behaviors". In other words, a dog can jump if she is sitting. A dog can't race around the house if she in a down/stay. When visiting another's house Jude gets very excited whenever people get up and move around. Today we practiced those incompatible behaviors and she did wonderfully!
