Doggie Welcome Committee
Does your dog act as the Welcome Committee for anyone entering your home? Does he always jump on you or your guests the second you come through the door? If so, you might just have an enthusiastic greeter on your hands. Jumping is a common behavior dogs do when they are greeting, when they want something, when they are excited. They also may use jumping to communicate with you, such as when they want to play or would like a treat.Jumping isn’t appropriate, however, and could be dangerous and lead to injuries to you, your dog, guess or your kids.
