    Hi folk,

    I am the proud owner of a 6 month old cockapoo named Phoebe (after the friends character).

    She is absolutely adorable and excellent with kids and other dogs.
    However, she is very hyper and tends to jump up on furniture a lot (as well as people).

    I wanted to know how other cockapoo/dog owners deal with this?

    Thanks.:)

    Hiya i have an 8 month old cockapoo who is mad as a box of frogs and always jumps all over the sofa but we allow the dogs on the sofa. She likes to stand on 2 legs and steal from the coffee table we are just persistant and keep as much as possible out of her reach.

    My friend has a 3yr old cockapoo who is also quite mad, her dogs are allowed on the furniture too so Sophie does jump on the couch/me when I sit down etc lol.

    I think with the jumping up people its just a matter of consistency waiting til she sits to greet people and if she jumps up then turn around and ignore til she sits/calms down , get visitors to give her a sit command and treat ? :)

    Thanks for the advice - the problem is that most of the visitors we get seem to wind her up and enjoy it.

    Maybe it's the visitors that need trained???:laugh:
