what we have done is put greetings on que. When we see a person who looks like they are going to want to say hi, I tell piggie to "go say hello" and about a foot away from the person I ask her to sit, before they can pet her. If she jumps up WE walk away, not far, just a few steps in the other direction, and then I say it again "go say hello" and ask her to sit before they can pet her. Shes gotten pretty good but its still a work in progress.
For a friends dog whos a really enthusiastic jumper we did this coupled with a touch command, We just ask the person to put their hand flat out and tell him to go touch, if hes touching a hand hes not jumping, so that works for him!
****GASP**** Not my Piggie! She always looks so reserved. I imagine her as a stately queen....sitting upon the highest throne....her will be done. Lol! She is so beautiful. I have to go and look at her pictures every day.
Thank you for the excellent idea on greeting people. I am going to have to try that. Bella is super excitable when it comes to people and no command works at all (okay..for more than a second....). The problem I have is that people will not listen to me when I tell them to ignore her only look at her if she has four feet on the ground.
*sigh* Training people is sooooo hard!
