Guests have come to you, and your dog behaves in the most inappropriate way. He barks, gets up on the guests with his front paws, tries to draw attention to himself, puts a drooling head on the knees of your friends. What to do and how to wean the dog from such an unpleasant behavior?
First you need to understand that any attention to the dog is perceived as a reward. Immediately you need to warn your guests so that they do not pay any attention to your four-sided friend. It must be remembered that patting and stroking the dog will not be able to get rid of, it will demand attention with even greater perseverance.
It is impossible for the dog to meet your guests, standing on its hind legs. Explain to your friends what to do to stop the dog so intensely happy. You can not look at the dog, talk to her and even more so to stroke the moment when she makes his welcome jumps.
Push the knee forward, step on the back paw - and the dog will stop jumping. But it is best to prevent such behavior, and to isolate in advance an overly active animal from society. As soon as the doorbell rang - tie the dog to the hook. Better in another room. Do not pay attention to her persistent demanding barking. Prepare an activity for your dog in advance.
Special toys with a hole, where the treat is put, help very well. It is better if it is tasty pieces of fresh meat - they are not so easy to get from the toy. It is possible for a couple of hours before the arrival of the guests to pour broth into the toy and put it in the freezer so that the liquid will freeze. Licking the ice broth will take a long time for the dog, and it will never bark and distract you and your guests.
If your guests are against isolation of the four-legged friend from society, ask them to pay attention to the dog only when it behaves calmly. Dogs very quickly understand from whom of your friends she should demand rewards in the form of strokes and pats, and from whom you will not get a single sign of attention.
When the guests arrived, calmly, without slapping, take the dog on a leash and give the command "Near!". If the dog tries to rush towards your friends, stop it with a sharp jerk and repeat the command. Repeat this trick until the dog calms down. Only after that the dog can be released from the leash. And ask your guests to never bring any treats to your dog. Otherwise, persistent barking will be impossible to stop.
