Yeah, I do use that word but she continues doing it as she is not getting any correction for it, not sure how to do this as she does not like being pushed off.
I have a Texas Blue Lacy. He is like a pogo stick. He can be at a stand still and pop right up on the counter/table/sink/lap/person's head etc. I struggled a bit with determining the best way to teach him NOT to jump up on things, unless I asked him to.
So - I have three seperate commands; "Load" which means get into or on to. "Load" into his crate. "Load" up on the picnic table. "Load" into the truck bed. Once he was in/on, I'd treat. Next, I'd ask him to "Wait". In the beginning it was just for a brief moment. Just long enough for him to realize there was a pause. As he improved, I'd increase the time of "Wait". Then I'd give him the command "Off". That means for him to get off of, or get out of the object. Then I'd treat.
I'd go everywhere looking for the opportunity to "Load / Wait / Off". At the feed store it was on feed sacks (he's 40 lbs). At the park it was picknic tables. Lawn furniture. People's laps. The couch, bed, chairs etc. Never anything that he wasn't allowed to jump on like the kitchen table or counters. As his balance improved it was smaller surfaced object where he really had to focus on what he was doing. Stools. Pots turned upside down.
When he would jump on something without being asked, he doesn't get a treat. So if he did jump up on the counter, I'd say "Off" & turn and walk away. He'd come down and run to me looking for a treat. I didn't ask him to, he doesn't get a treat.
It just clicked in his head. "Off" without a treat is a correction. Doesn't get a treat. But "Off" when asked is a command and gets a treat. Now he'll actually go up to an object, turn and look at me. It is as if he's saying, I can "Load"...can I? Will I get a treat? If I don't ask him to, he'll walk away and look for something else to do.
For my dog, the trick was to practice, practice, practice. Every opportunity that I had we did it. Even if it was as we were walking by. We still do it - as he is a drivey dog - but I may not treat until the scenario is complete.
He hasn't jumped up on the counter/kitchen table in months.
