    Dog Trampling?!

    Is there ANY way to stop a clumsy dog from trampling (i.e. jumping up on your chest or head or stomach, walking on you, jumping with heavy feet onto your other dog or your friend sitting on the couch?) ? My husky is consistently doing this and she has no idea she's doing this. I've never had a problem with my other dog doing this. it is SO annoying and painful at times.

    Yes, through training. Along with basic obedience, teach "off," and use body blocks as a means of controlling your space. Rather than focus on what you don't want your dog to do, try thinking in terms of what you'd rather she did, instead. Like sit. Work on teaching self-control (daily 30-min. down/stays is but one of many).

    By jumping on you , he's saying that he's the pack leader.
    Jumping up is something many dogs will do unless trained otherwise. When boundaries aren't defined, a dog can't be expected to respect them.

    I know it's too late in your case, but this is where research really paid off for me because I learned before I got my puppy that it's best to never let the dog jump. Many people think it's okay when it's a cute small puppy, but when the dog grows up it grows old very fast.

    When sitting on the couch and he jumps on you, give the "Off" command and stand up. When standing and he jumps on you, give the "Off" command and turn your back. Then reward when he does/doesn't do what you want/don't want and in time he should learn.
