ADVICE 285
Jumping on people and following them with excitement are natural activities of the dog, but they can be annoying and even dangerous for people as well as for the animal.
ADVICE 286

ADVICE 287
Don't use only verbal orders but also hand signs in order to let the dog understand them even when it is not close to us.
1. With the dog at your left and in the lie down position, give the dog the order "quiet". With the leash in your right hand move the left one to the dog and begin walking.
2. Hold the visual contact with the dog and keep the leash floating with you move away from the dog.
ADVICE 288
Don't offer the dog food rewards when you teach it to remain quiet or it will come to you to get the prize.

4. Once you have taught the dog to remain still in your presence, you can teach to it without you in front of it. Repeat the first three steps and the go out of the room. Make sure the dog doesn't move by using a mirror.
5. A few minutes later, appear again and reward it saying "good". Do it calmly and quietly while the dog is still. Don't excite the dog or reward it for standing up.
6. Let the dog stand up from its position with the words "good" or "ok". Don't congratulate it too much because its excitation would such a good reward that the dog will only want to finish this exercise and not the training itself.
