Whats the best way of stopping my 41/2 month old springer spaniel jumping up at people?

by Tracy

My Springer has just bit my 7 year old daughter by accident trying to get her teddy bear out of her hands when she came down for her breakfast this morning.

We have had a springer before but she was 12 when we lost her so have not trained a puppy for a long time. what is the best way of stopping this behaviour?

Hi there
To stop the jupming up try one of the following

a)Raise you knee into their chest as they jump they have to turn away

b)Turn you back on them and completely ignore them when they jump up

c) walk towards them and dominate the space they are in, sending the message that you are alpha and will not tolerate the behaviour.

Good Luck
