My 5 month old female GSD has been jumping up on people to greet them. Adults can just put up the knee and say "NO", and this has been working. But today, my 2yr old and 4 yr old grandkids came to stay with us for a while. The pup has never been around toddlers and get excited and jumps on them, knocking them to the ground. We grab her immediately when she does it, correct her with a neck grab and "NO!". She just does it so fast we need tips on how to prevent her from doing this, especially since the dog is as tall as the 2 yr old. It wouldn't be fair to keep her on a leash in the house for the next 6 to 12 months while she matures.

Well, it's been a few days. Thanks for all your input. We kept her on the leash, working with the pup and the kids. I even got the 4 yr old to do some sit, down, here work with her. He loved it when we told him he "was the boss" of the pup. We taught him the hand signs and how to give the command. He did real good with it. Played with her like that for a good 20 minutes. The 2 yr old learned to stop running and stand still if the pup ran at her. So far all your suggestions are working . Thanks again!!

UPDATE: Today Tasha is 16 months and is awesome with the grandkids. Our 17 month old grandson talks to her in his own language and Tasha totally responds!
Our son moved back home a few months ago bringing his 4 yo male shepherd and the dogs are both excellent with the kids.
Thanks again for all the advice!!
