Help with obsessive jumping
Hello, I just recently adopted a GSD, ~2yr spayed about 2 months ago. She has a huge issue of jumping on me and my housemate. She will get excited when I let her out of her crate, bring her to the door to go outside, have a toy she wants, tell her to do something, when I sit down...basically she is jumping on me almost all the time. she gets about 2 hours of exercise each day. I have tried a lot to get her to stop jumping: I tried ignoring her but this does not discourage her and she will just claw up my back. I have tried stepping into her but this just excites her more. The trainer I hired recommended I get her into a sit but she will either not listen, or sit and then jump on me a second later when I release her. There have been times when she has run at me and jumped on me, sending me backwards. I am the one doing all of the training/exercise and spending the majority of time with the dog, but yet the dog jumps on me more often and with more intensity than my housemate. I'm at a loss but this needs to have stopped yesterday. Has anyone had this problem before? How can I get her to stop seeing me as a tree to climb? Thanks!
