Welcome to Might As Well Not Jump. Forget what Van Halen says. Dogs jumping on people can be rude, embarrassing, and potentially unsafe. Remember, what's cute to you when a dog is young or small can become a real problem as they grow or encounter other people. Let's nip that in the bud.

There are a few common situations when dogs jump up on people:

  • When they're thrilled you're home
  • When they want to say hello to other humans
  • When you have something they want
  • When they're excited

Look under the surface and these are similar. Your pup wants something—attention, treats, food, toys—and thinks that's the best way to get it. It's that simple. And since all dog jumping is similar, there's one secret to putting jumping behind you.

In this course, we'll teach you the secret, and we'll show you options for how to apply it to your situation. When you complete it, you'll have the tools you need to put jumping behind you for good.

Curious what that secret is? Let's get started.
