[QUOTE=tenderfoot;333945]Just a note - this is a VERY old thread.
Please don't not KNEE your dog in the chest to teach him to stop jumping up. You can do great harm to the dog and the person can get set off balance and fall.
please don't think i meant actually "kneeing" the dog, i would never tell someone to do that, but raising a knee up as they jump doesn' nothing more than block them like you would with a hand, it is impossible to hurt them. i would NEVER condone ANY form of pain for any animal, that would make me a bad trainer (which i am not). if someone understood wrong i apologize.
