Keely will be 9 weeks old on friday. Should we be discouraging her from jumping up? I've taught her to get down when she jumps up when i'm standing or walking but should i be discouraging her from jumping up and at me when i'm on the floor playing with her? Will she recognise that there's a difference or should i be discouraging it regardless? It's such a puppy thing to leap when she's excited and i feel that merely playing with her encourages it when i'm on the floor with her
I meant to add that she's been barking when i'm stirring and cooling down her food, so i've just put the food down on the counter, left the room and ignored her for 30 seconds til she calms down, and leaving the room and ignoring her seems to work for jumping up too. I'm just not sure that i should be giving her negative signals for jumping AT me whilst i'm on the floor playing.
