How do I teach my dog to sit still and wait before he eats?

Asked a year ago

My dog always jumps at me when his food are in my hands. I'd like him to sit still until I put the food down. How do I begin this habit?

I would begin with simple commands such as sit and wait. When your baby does start to jump on you when it is time for food, I would put the food up. Make him sit and wait, when he does this reward him with a treat. Once he has calmed down, bring the food back out and continue to repeat this process until he starts to learn that jumping during dinner time is not okay. Get him to the point that he is to wait until the food is down. Once the food is down you can teach him the command of “go” or “go get it.”
