puppy too friendly???Posted by: Eliane Freeland

I have a 3 month old female JR. She is (surprise :-) very clever and already house trained. What seems to be a tiny problem is that she is really very friendly and playful and eager to greet and jump at any human in sight. Once she escaped out of our quite secure garden just to say hello to a stranger. But not all people appreciate dogs jumping at them -- and I would love to be able to wear tights one day again, too :-) We live in the countryside and there're no classes available here. We've got to do all the training ourselves. Is there anything I can do to teach her not to jump at people and not to run away to greet every stranger?
Thank you so much,
