The 'knee' thing, I've done it. I took in a family dog, I was living with fragile seniors at the time. It seemed necessary. Yes, it worked, but if I had the luxury of time I would have done things differently.
This time I did have the luxury of time, and a smaller dog.
Reward four on the floor like a crazy--party time, scritches, rubbies, everything...
Weirdly enough, this time around, (smaller dog) I also put jumping up on cue ('hugs') because I liked it, but didn't want him popping up at the wrong time--this wasn't easy, but also worked. Because I reward four on the floor like crazy, though, now, I have to beg for hugs.....
Even if I still had a gsd, I think I'd put hugs on cue. Actually, I taught my last gsd, to a 'lets dance' cue, paws on outstretched arms, a comfy version of jumping up.

All of my other dogs were GSD's, sadly missed, moving forward
