Question Ask advise

Hi,
my name is Oxana and I am new here. I have my first dog, doberman 3,5 m.o. I have many questions, of course, but the first and most important (for now, at least I very hope) is: how to teach his don't jump on me. He has been here about 5 days, but I already have huge bruises and scratches Actually he doesn't jump so neither on my husband nor on his lady-breeder. It seems I have not authority for him, as he didn't listen to my order "STOP/DON'T" although knows this order. He is only "falling in rage" and keep jumping..so I have to retire I really need any good advise still alive

Hello and welcome!

Whenever Zuko tried to jump up as a puppy, I would raise my knee to block his jump so he would be forced down and away, and I would firmly say 'NO.'. Any time he tried to jump I raised my knee to stop his pursuit and he quickly learned not to do it anymore. I also praised when he didn't jump with a treat.

Well, puppies jump--they all do--it's in attempt to get you to pay attention to them and it's what they do to their mothers. At 3.5 months and having been in his new home for only 5 days it probably means he may not know what "STOP/DON'T" actually mean.

With a new puppy I do two things very quickly--I either block the jumping with my knee or I squat down and fend the puppy off and push them into a sit and hold them there while I give them the attention they are after. The second thing I do (with small, high value treats) is teach the command "sit"--so that the first behavior they offer is a sit--that keeps them from jumping on you and the treat gives them a good reason to learn a behavior that doesn't include jumping.

Can't tell you exactly why he doesn't jump on your husband. But it probably doesn't actually have much to do about him having "more authority"--it is more likely that he's just better at fending the puppy off and offering something that is more attractive than the act of jumping. As for the breeder--she's probably been teaching puppies from his litter to not jump on her since they learned to walk. And as far as what puppies actually "know"about commands/directions one thing to bear in mind is that dogs (not just puppies) don't generalize well--so while a dog may know the command sit from one person in their kitchen it very often doesn't carry over to somewhere else or as a command issued by a different person.

Say what? What on earth does "falling in rage" mean? Typo or ?

Retiring from contact with the puppy isn't likely to teach him anything--if anything it's likely to make him more excited (therefore more likely to jump on you) each time he does see you.

Good luck but changing behaviors in puppies is always a matter of training so that's your next step. Teaching him to sit, instead of jumping will, unfortuneately mean you'll still get jumped on occasionally but fading the jumping for a more desireable behavior, although it takes some time will result in a better behaved puppy and definitely a happier (and less bruised) you.

I am adamant that puppy jumping up on anybody, is a No-No & quickly trained out.
- with a running pup colliding with my knee, only takes a few times
- when pup is running towards me, at full tilt...I telegraph my knee raise
- pup quickly learns to avoid, the persuasion...for life

Nobody was hurt or confidence stolen, in this training exercise.
- now our girl, likes to bait Dad into kicking her Jolly-Ball (out of mouth)...while held firmly, between her teeth

Our first girl in 1977 jumped on a little girl, coming home from Sunday School Church...all dressed up.
- I did a lot of sweet talking with her Dad...to avoid Police coming, and impounding my 9 month old dobe

^^ Lesson Learned !!
- now pups learn "jumping is very bad"...from the beginning

Thank you dobebug! "Sit!" really works (mostly time) and I see, now we started to go outside, so after his running trough park he is getting certainly more calm. Unfortunately he dosn't like rain, just scare of it...I thought only cats dislike it. Good luck!
