  1. When I come home, my dog jumps on me. Sometimes he pushes me over. How can I make him stop?
    Here's what to do: Your dog should be somewhere enclosed before you come home...the yard, a pen, a bedroom, or a crate. Don't leave him loose in the house. When you arrive don't talk to your dog. Ignore him for the first twenty minutes you are home. When he has settled down, go to him, ask him to sit (you may give him a treat), and put his leash on him. Then go out for a walk. By doing this, you are rewarding his good behavior.

  2. Why does my 2 year old Fox Terrier pee whenever I tell him not to jump on me?
    Your Fox Terrier pees on you because he is afraid. He may not seem afraid, but dogs pee when they are scared or feel like they are disappointing you. Try not to yell at him or tell him no. Use a leash when you practice the command, "Come Here" so that you can help your dog sit down when he gets to you. When he sits, give him a treat, even if you helped him sit. Read this page: Teaching Come Here and have a friend help. Practice a couple of times everyday. Your Fox Terrier will realize that good things happen when he sits.

  3. Whenever my dog wants to come inside from the backyard, she always jumps up on the door. Why?
    Actually, your dog is very smart. She has figured out a way to let you know that she wants in. If you don't want her to jump on the door, teach her a more acceptable way of letting you know that she wants in. A good way is to go to the door and tell your dog to sit. As soon as she sits, reward her by letting her in. Of course, your dog must know how to sit first. Good luck!
