ourwully Posted November 8, 2014 Report Share Posted November 8, 2014 I apologize for bringing this topic up again but I am making very slow progress with Juno with regards to meeting people and dogs. She just loves to meet new people and new dogs but she gets so excited that she wants to jump on them. I have tried a few things but I am still struggling. Do you think I should be more strict with Juno or do you have any suggestions on how I might best approach these situations. So far I have tried doing the following things: 1. I have used the Look at That game with good success from a distance but when we get close it is less effective. 2. I have her target my hand with treats when we are closer and this is effective at times but not consistent. 3. I have her sit when we are about 10 feet away and calm her down using either of the two methods above. Once she is calm we move closer but only if it is at a controlled speed. If she lunges we move back and start again. This has been fairly effective but often when we get to one foot away she loses it. Often my resolve fails at this point and I let her meet the dog or person. This isn't good as she then can be jumping and squirming in excitement. 4. I get down to her level and speak to her to calm her down first. Again this works but she loses it as soon as we are really close. The one area where I am really struggling is when she is loose with her friend Kaley the black lab. They run around like crazy enjoying themselves but every once and a while she will jump on Kaley's owner before I get a chance to do anything. Kaley's owner doesn't mind as the jumping is getting less and less every day but it is still a concern to me. Any thoughts?
