Eiros We are still working on this with ward, especially when picking him up from daycare/class. I keep him on a short leash and put him in a heel ASAP because otherwise we both get all tangled up. Even though he's so excited and wants to greet me, I ignore it until he is calm enough to say hello properly. We tell him "off" just before he looks like he's going to jump and he usually won't go through with it, so that's what works for us.

We had issues with Olivia jumping. What worked well for us was essentially putting my knee up and letting her glance off to the side with a subsequent OFF command. This way no damage to her chest, she tired herself out and got the message. Key is you must supplement the action with a command such as OFF. Don't use down as that will be confused when you want your dog to lay down.

Baillif You can either give him an incompatible behavior right before he is about to like a sit or a down, or you can put your thumb into his ribs enough to make it uncomfortable. Has to be consistent though.

PhoenixGuardian Have you tried putting your knee out and letting him fall on it? Don't knee him in the gut, but if you do it right, it doesn't hurt him, but it works well. With a loud unpleasant noise is best. Then, after he is on the ground, I would make him do something, probably sit, and tell him that he is good (only for doing what you told him) It will take a while if you use this method, but it does work. I have used it for most of our dogs (19 of whom are jumpers) and it usually works.
Lets see what the more knowledgeable people say
