It may take several times for your dog to learn new commands. You might have to repeat the same exercise up to fifty times before your dog remembers it. Try to maintain as much patience as possible, for the sake of your dog.
When your dog jumps on you, take its paws in your hands and lightly squeeze them to let it know that jumping on people is not an acceptable behavior. It’s uncomfortable, but not painful. In time, they will cease jumping on humans, as they will have the negative association with the squeezing.
