    1. You people are stupid. Anyone with eyes can see this dog is 10% German Shepherd, 40% Jack Russell, 80% Yorkshire Terrier, and 13% bloodhound. It amazes me how people don’t know their dog breeds!

  1. The best tip that Zak George taught me was to NOT have your guests train your dogs to not jump. YOU have to intervene. Changed my dogs experience with guests. So many other dog trainers say to teach your guests how to respond to your dogs. Ignore bad behavior and reward good behavior. At first I would have my guests do that but my dogs still jumped. Since watching Zak George’s video on this I interrupt my dogs jumping on guests and they have been able to calm themselves much faster in order to greet guests. Thanks!!!!

    1. Do you want to know how training my dog WITHOUT my guests help worked? I always corrected my dog when she jumped on my friends at the door and she listened (when I’m there) which took intense amount of training as her excitement made her look like she would rip through her skin from the sit position just so she can jump on people. There was a time I went to the toilet after 10 minutes of chatting when my friend arrived (initial excitement gone huh?). My dog waited until I went to the toilet then jumped all over my friend while I was gone. My GSD wants to jump on people so bad she will wait until I’m gone so she won’t get told not to by me as she knows no one else will correct her. I needed my guests to be more cooperative. Now after a year of trying to establish good door manners, I’ve given up as she still can’t control herself without me telling her not to jump. I now tell anyone who comes over, either deal with her jumping on you or YOU tell her not to. It’s all of you that are the problem for encouraging her so why should I waste time and effort training her and stopping her from being her happy, excited self.

    2. Seriously! It’s harder to train other people than it is to train the dog. Our dog trainer told us to teach people to say “off” and step back, but even she didn’t have success with every person who came over to her place. Instead, a bunch of people are using their own training strategies and kneeing my dog. Nope.

  2. Hey Zak! We just got a new dog, if you’re ever around Tampa Fl we would love to do a video with you! I’ve been watching all your videos lately, they are a great help.

  3. Zak your information is helping me more than you could imagine. 🙂
    I’ve always wanted my own dog, but with my anxiety problems, I was terrified about not doing things right.
    So, I’d be totally lost without your videos, we just got our very first puppy yesterday, and I feel great about our training so far because of your instructions and principles, she’s responding so well to it all, I’m so proud, and I know I’m doing everything the best I can, to my ability! it puts my mind at ease. Thank you SO MUCH for all you do for the dogs in this world!! I had to become a patron for all your help! I’ve been sharing your stuff to everyone around me too!

  4. THIS is the dog jumping video I needed. My dog is like Zeus in his actions and also in his attention to the treats. Being disabled it has been a challenge, your videos have helped.

  5. It’s good to watch someone training a dog who isn’t already perfect! I’m tired of watching YouTube videos of dogs which are already doing exactly what the trainer wants rather than being shown the techniques in action with a dog which is new to it all.

    1. Agreed. But the challenge is the amount of time it takes to get to the end result. It’s a tedious, often frustrating process and nobody has, or wants to spend time on, the 47 hours to watch the failures that lead to the success.
