Please share your tips with me on stopping a bouncy 8 week puppy!

Keeping everything low down, so when you're playing with toys keep them on the floor, if you're giving treats put them on the floor too, crouch down or sit on the floor so you're at her level, keep rewarding four paws on the floor

Completely ignore the puppy unless all four feet are on the ground.

Dpup is 5mths now and we had a dog behavioursist come on Saturday. She recommended the four paws on the ground method, all also for visitors to turn their back on her and ignore until she calms down. Just need to train the visitors now!!

Pantsjustpants I find visitors undo everything.

So if puppy has all four paws on the floor do I randomly treat and say 'no jumping' so when she does jump if I say no jumping she knows not to?
