Training dog not to jump on couch?

.

I have a 4 and a half month old cocker spaniel/poodle mix, and he is just getting enough strength in his legs to start jumping onto things which he enjoys doing. How do I train him to not jump onto the couch or bed, unless he is called. He will chase after his squeaky toys and is highly motivated by food. Also, I had posted a question about biting earlier and his biting has reduced a lot, but when he is playing sometimes he bites my hand, I don’t know if it’s by accident because he’s excited and can’t control it or he’s doing it on purpose. Any suggestions?

      My mother trained her two dogs using the dog training academy and had good success. Her dogs really responded and it could help you too. Best of luck.

      Hello
      I do know about how good dog behaviour can make our lives easier and training can be simple, but is not always so easy! My two jack russel terriers were a real handful until I learned some of the simple secrets necessary to let them know who is boss!
      Try not to listen to too many different ‘experts’ and get some some qualified help and guidance. This has worked for many of my friends so check it out and try for yourself.

      I used a thin, rolled up newspaper and all I had to do was swat my dog on the hip ONCE–it doesn’t hurt. From then on, the minute they see you START to roll one up, they stop the behavior or take off.

      Except the jumping. I have a 10 month Standard Poodle. LONG legs, and yesterday she was doing broad jumps about 3 feet high over my 3 yr old grandson, who would crouch down on the floor. It got a little wild when grandson came over. So, grabbed a paper, and dog took off for her rug in the basement. When she’s out, she’s on a rope and tie out, so can run a big circle. When I go out to get her, she REALLY jumps, gives me an aggressive but playful growl, and sometimes nips at my clothing. She does it from every direction. I trie letting her "run into" my foot, fist, I wrestle her to the ground and verbally discipline her, and today I tried the newspaper and a swat with milk jug we were playing with. The jug had some effect, so did the paper. But nothing has really helped. I don’t think cockers jump as much as poodles.

      About the couch: I had that problem, too. I have adopted a dog 1.5 weeks ago and she always would jump on the couch. But after this time it is SO much better! We taught her "off". Everytime she would jump on the couch, I ignore her for 10 seconds or so, so she doesn’t get to think it is a game (because she likes to jump on and off if she senses that it annoys us). Then I grab her collar, put her down and as her paws touch the floor I say off. It also helps to stand up and ignore her. She has learned that she should be in her pet bed, and it works quite good now!

      About the biting: Our dog did this too, but you can teach your dog to play with you without feeling any teeth. It can get dangerous if they think it’s ok to play rough with you. Everytime I feel my dogs teeth, I make a high pitched noise and walk away and refuse to play. That would also be what other dogs would do if they get bitten.

      hope that helps!

      When he jumps up, knock (in a nice way) off. When you go to work put things on there (like maybe empty boxes) so theres no room for him to jump. Soon he’ll learn you dont want him on the couch.

      But I dont see any problem with it but it seems to drive adults crazy! I think they just want to be more in control lol 🙂

      Give your dog a bed. Do not leave your dog alone around furniture. When he gets on the furniture, lure him off.

      Something that worked for me: This can be super tiring at first but it worked. Every time puppy jumps onto couch or bed I snap my fingers and use a stern voice to say "down". Remove pup from couch of needed. After a week or so they understand when they are in trouble. Now days all I have to do is snap and the dog will know he is doing something bad. Remember to reward the desired behaviors u see with a treat or special toy.
