First thing you have got to do is to ignore your pets for a brief period of time when you arrive back home.Wait until they calm down, then give them attention.

Sounds like a commercial for doggy Prozac, then they would really be off the wall!! Ray is right, watch the dog whisperer!

Isn't that very natural pack behaviour one of the MAIN REASONS why we have dogs? Of course they can be trained to not jump up, but to expect them to sit and wait until WE decide that WE want to pet them is totally unrealistic and unfair. The emotional benefits of being greeted with joy and enthusiasm every time we come home is one of the super benefits of having a dog!! It is emotionally a precious thing. Check out the Dog Whisperer or someone else who has studied dog behaviour like Jane Goodall studied chimps, and you will realize that a compromise is required to keep them sane....

the dog whisperer says don't pet them until they calm down and not to knowledge them right away. maybe you need to watch it madeleine l. he teaches how we are suppose to be the pack leaders not your dogs.

Who comes up with these half-baked phrases? 'Life coaches' for dogs? Society is getting nuttier and more pathetic every day.

I'm with Madeleine. Dogs are tail-wagging bundles of joy. They wait all day for you to come home. Ignoring them will hurt their hearts. If you are one of those who can't handle unconditional love, get yourself a pet rock. And quit your bloody whining.
