He is rambunctious, to say the least. Are there any easy lessons to teach Farley not to jump up on people when they visit?

 – Lanny S., via email

A: Jumping up is a common issue in dogs. There definitely are ways to train Farley to not jump when visitors arrive, but for any training to work, everyone in the household needs to be on the same page so that the training is reinforced.
