Training helps dog overcome jumping and barking at visitors

Hi Michele,

I just wanted to thank you again for helping Vinnie and I and also wanted to share some successes we had this past week. On two separate occasions, Vinnie displayed excellent “greeting” behavior. In a very short period of time, he literally was lying down waiting for the guest to greet him, unlike his prior behavior which was a lot of barking and jumping. I know we still have to work on this, but he took one giant step in less than a week!

Our next goal is the “recall” command, one that is a little tougher for us since he seems to have a mind of his own!

Thanks again for all your excellent insights!

Laura and Vinnie too!
