Hi,

We started puppy training classes last week and the lady advised us to use training discs to curb Truffle's habit of jumping on the furniture/kitchen surfaces. They are working well, but he's learnt not to jump when I'm there so he's still doing it when I'm not, which I want to stop as well. The discs say they can be used to stop jumping while you're not there, but how? Any ideas?

Many thanks

Cat and Truffle

My puppy Scrabble is a Whippet x Bedlington x Parsons Jack Russell (and I think there is Kangaroo in there too).
She found she could jump ONTO the work surfaces, suddenly nothing was safe.
I piled up a load of tinny things, tin lids, cake tins etc and piled them wiggly, pigley and trailed a tea towel of out them, knowing she would make a grab for it. 2 seconds out the room, the door had hardly closed when CRASH, she had fallen for the bait.
Success - it cured her in one go.
She hasn't touched a thing since. and that was two weeks ago.
How the discs would work when you are not there - that one beats me.
When you find out perhaps you'd share that one.
BUT, the tins work.
All the talk of positive and negative stuff - I have my own name for it - it is CONSEQUENCES- you do and this will happen - whats more you made it happen doggy. Tins flew out of the air....
