Question by Lisa L: How do I get my dog to jump up on high eg ?
My dog just doesn’t want to jump up on high objects! I have tried everything, I’ve put delicious snacks on the bed, I’ve encouraged him by pretending to be a dog myself and jumping on it! And helping him by pushing his butt gently! Its ridiculous, I’ve reached the point of desperation.

He does incessant pleas at ungodly hours of the night and day to be lifted on the bed/sofa, its driving me mad! What else is there that I can do to teach him. I’ve only seen him jump once on the sofa and that was by his own will.
He is a very healthy dog, I highly doubt there is anything wrong with his back, he has no problem jumping of the bed. He could be scared however.

Best answer:

Answer by Lisa R.
dogs are afraid of heights, and won’t jump. This may be his problem.
You can buy or make him a ramp or set of steps that you can place next to the bed/sofa etc. that he can use to get there.
if he’s scared , just jumping may not be an option.

    Just FYI, The fanfare at the start and end is way too loud, makes watching your vids annoying, even when you have a worthy joke as this one. js

    ARGH!

    i wouldnt recommend that!

    consider yourself lucky! i taught my dog to jump and i really regret it now!! once they learn, they keep doing it and its SO ANNOYING!! they’ll just come and randomly jump on you! my dog runs up and tries to jump on me whenever i go outside and she nearly knocked me over, and sh’es only tiny and im avergae height!

    my friend taught her dog, it jumped on the sofa, fell off and broke its leg, TWICE!

    i wouldnt encourage the dog to jump if i were you! be grateful that it doesnt want to, coz when it learns, it will never leave you in peace, and it could hurt itself really badly, im not joking. the site of my poor friends dog hobblogna round with its leg completely in plaster was awful! it got fat coz it couldnt run around and then it had other health problems

    im not trying to criticise you or anything, but dont encourage him to jump. and with his please to be lifted on the bed, if you ignore him, he will stop it after a while. my dog always tried to jump on me when i sat down, so i ignored her and she ventually stopped,

    my mum always patted hre and lifted her up on her lap, so now she doesnt leave mum alone. its annoying, it really is!

    sp please dont!

    lol

    God bless
    🙂

    ITs a funny question because most people don’t want dogs on there beds. My Schnauzer does the same exact thing. He standsup along side my bed and stares at me until I pick him up.

    I have use treats successfully. BUT he still does not go up there on his own. Basically what I am thinking is there dogs that like to jump and dogs that do not. Mine is only 10months, so hopefully he eventally fined his legs. I had a Mini Poodle growing up that could jump 5ft.

    I think you should keep going with what you’re doing.
    you sound like a caring owner so im sure the dog will trust your judgement in the end! maybe if you pick it up and put it on the bed, you know, to show him/her theres nothing to be scared of!

    Good luck.

    Nice try but you need to tie in a command with the reward. This may take some time for him to figure out though if your dog is old (not impossible). Before you start make sure he hasn’t eaten yet. No use trying to give your dog something if it’s full already. First you place the food on the bed (a very small piece, you don’t want to fill his stomach). Then you say the command (make sure it’s no more than two syllables long. “Up” would be an easy command.) Then you have to carry him up on the bed. Do this repeatedly about seven times. On the eight time all you do is say “Up” and see what it does (Try not to do this more than ten times). It should be able to tie the reward and the command together. (Sorry about calling your dog “it” but you didn’t specify if it was a he/she). That should work. If it doesn’t work immediately than give a few more days. Don’t overdo the training. Twice a day should be enough until it gets it. If after a week and it still doesn’t get it then I suggest you take it to a pet doctor to have it’s vertigo dealt with. I don’t know if it’s possible for a dog to have a fear of heights. Hope this works for you, so that you can get more undisturbed sleep.
