Hey everyone...I don't post a lot in here b/c I don't have any pets at the moment but here goes. I have a wonderful new man in my life and it hasn't been very long yet so we're still just taking it slow and seeing where it goes. He has a very cute 1 1/2 yo black Lab and she is very energetic and friendly. We even took her hiking earlier in the fall before the weather got too bad and I got to take her for the last leg of the hike...so fun! So here's the deal. The dog is well behaved and all, but she LOVES to jump up on me. And as much as I am sheepish about posting this in THIS particular subforum, the truth of the matter is I am just not fully comfortable around dogs of any size. I didn't grow up with dogs and very few of my friends have dogs. My ex BF didn't have pets and my BF prior to that was a few years ago and he had the most gentle rottweiler (sp?) of all time. New BF is very aware of me not being fully comfortable...we've talked about this and I have also told him I DO want to get more comfortable around the dog but it may take time. He does NOT let her rule the house and I'm VERY glad for that. She can't be on furniture and she doesn't get table scraps, for example. Sorry about the ramble, but is there a quick command or tone to tell a dog to NOT jump up on you? I know she's happy to see me and friendly but honestly this REALLY bothers me. New BF is very aware of this and is constantly pulling her away from me. So...help me out here, dog lovers! TIA!
