Stop puppy jumping
Can someone please tell me how to stop my 5 month old staffie from jumping up at me. I am 17 weeks pregnant and Nala is getting bigger and heavier and I'm starting to worry that she will hurt baby.

Please I need to start training her asap. What can I do I'm really getting desperate.

There are a few ways - one is to abruptly turn away without saying anything and just ignore her. The other is to hold your knee out so she jumps against it. This she will not enjoy and soon learn not to jump up.
