I got a 2.5 year old English Pointer last month and among other issues that we are working on, she jumps on doors. Granted the only doors she jumps on have windows in them so she can see out (she is jumping up and putting her paws on the door while she looks outside). Unfortunately, all the exterior doors in my house have windows. What can I do besides replacing the doors to stop the behavior? I've been trying all month to teach her that she only gets let outside when she sits. I've never reinforced this behavior. If I hear or see her jump, I've been turning away, but none of this seems to be working. She does it just as frequently as she did it before. She does sit to go outside but only after jumping and looking out, and once she has 4 on the floor I have to ask her to sit.
