Johnsonville West Kindergarten celebrates International Friendship Day Continued from page 1. “Today, in such a global society, it is imperative that the leaders of the tomorrow respect and understand the diversity in this world,” Jo said. The United Nations established the International Friendship Day in 2011 intending to build stronger communities and move towards global peace. Johnsonville West Kindergarten commemorated the day for the first time this year. It was important for the early childhood centre to recognise and celebrate diversity, and to talk about the things that unite people, Jo said. About 80 children from 22 cultures are currently visiting Johnsonville West. Lisa Dau is four years old and her family has moved to Wellington from Vietnam. “I have a lot of friends here and I like playing together with them and have fun,” Lisa explained. Her mother Lan Nguyen said she felt very comfortable in the Johnsonville West Kindergarten community. “We are very happy here.

“Lisa is in a safe place, and she learns to speak English,” Lan said. In her speech, head teacher Jo also addressed the issues that early childhood centres face due to underfunding. Ohariu MP Peter Dunne (UnitedFuture), candidates Greg O’Connor (Labour) and Brett

Hudson (National), and Green’s Tane Woodley acknowledged that kindergartens are struggling with their budgets. “As teachers, we believe that every child is worth the best education New Zealand can provide. “That is why we want funding for quality teacher led educa-

There is also a dedicated footpath for pedestrians along the re-alignment section separated with delineators. All restrictions on Old Porirua Road have been lifted. “There is still a lot of work to be done on the area, so please be patient in the meantime,” a council spokesperson said.

Regional council might ‘bite the bullet’ for better parking in Johnsonville By Julia Czerwonatis

The Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) has taken a new step towards solving Johnsonville’s parking problem. Regional councillors will be looking into new options to acquire land for park and ride facilities and are now considering to buy land off private owners. Councillor Daran Ponte, sus-

tainable transport committee deputy, has put forward the idea: “We have been raising this issue for a while and have been working quite rigorous on a solution,” Ponte said. “We are taking Johnsonville serious and seem that we finally might have to bite the bullet and finally invest to facilitate options. The recommendation stems from the fact that Johnsonville

is heavily constrained with little available land in and around the current railway station. Regional council has asked the Wellington City Council identify spare land – it’s owned by either Kiwirail or the Johnsonville Shopping Centre for the most part. Councillors have also agreed to move the Johnsonville bus hub, currently situated on the car park

of the mall, in July next year. GWRC are currently discussing four different options for a new location, a final solution is yet to be determined. Finally, council committed to prepare a report on better provision of bus replacement services, including timetables, routes and advertising after frequent reports from commuters about the system deficiency.

Karori Campus up for sale About 70 residents gathered on Monday night to hear about the latest development around the Karori Campus from their councillors and local politicians. PHOTOS: Julia Czerwonatis

By Julia Czerwonatis

After months of negotiations over the future of the old Teachers’ College, Victoria University of Wellington announced last week to put Karori Campus on the open market. The Karori community, Wellington city councillors and local politicians were “disappointed” by Victoria’s decision: “This will have a significant impact on the development of the community led proposal and an integrated ‘masterplan’ for the whole site,” Andy Foster, Onslow-Western ward councillors, said. City council and the community group Save the Karori Campus have been working together in compiling a viable business case

inbrief news Meet the candidates Khandallah Town Hall and Cornerstone Community Centre are hosting an election forum with the Ohariu candidates, including Peter Dunne, Greg O’Connor, Brett Hudson and Jessica Hammond Doube. There will also be representatives from other parties. The evening will be held on Wednesday, the August23, from 7.30 -9.30pm at Khandallah Town Hall, 11 Ganges Road.

Ohariu poll A One News Colmar Brunton poll released on Sunday shows Greg O’Connor ahead of the incumbent Peter Dunne, with 48 percent of the vote for O’Connor and 34 percent for Dunne. Brett Hudson received 14 percent and Jessica Hammond Doube two percent. A total of 501 eligible Ohariu voters were polled last week. The poll had a margin of error of 4.4 percent.

Boomerang bags to establish a mix of commercial and community facilities on the site. The Onslow-Western ward councillors hosted a community meeting on Monday night to discuss options to prevent the facilities from being sold and demolished. Councillors, Wellington Central MP Grant Robertson (Labour), and candidates Nicola Willis (National) and Geoff Simmons (Opportunities Party) showed unity saying pressure on the university had to be upheld. “The ministry and council have been working together, but the university hasn’t,” Grant said. “The problem here is the money and the competitive tertiary education. “The university has to see itself

as part of the community.” The Ministry of Education wants to acquire part of the land to build a technology education hub. Negotiations are ongoing as the ministry and the university weren’t able to agree on a prize yet. Council has committed to buying part of the land for additional car parking for the pool and recreation courts. “There is a range of possible outcomes from this process, including there being multiple purchasers,” Stephen Costley, Victoria’s property service director, said.

However, selling to one investor seems the more lucrative option for the university. Last month, Ryman Healthcare expressed interested in buying the entire site to build a new retirement village. Victoria said students would benefit from profits made from the Kaori Campus; the university was investing in research and funds for scholarships.

Churton Park Community Centre will host a Boomerang Bags making bee coming Saturday, August 19, from 3.305.30pm. The project aims to replace plastic bags with reusable fabric bags. Volunteers of all ages welcome to help with cutting, pinning, ironing, printing, sewing and organising. No experience needed. Email tracey.read@wcc.govt. nz with any queries, or just come along.

OUT of ZONE ENROLMENTS for 2018 Enrolment at Raroa Normal Intermediate School is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office or at www.raroa.school.nz The Board has determined that 20 places are likely to be available for the out of zone students next year. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone. If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot.

Tawa: Saturday 19 August

If there are fewer in zone enrolments than places available, then enrolment applications from out of zone students will be processed in the following order of priority: • First priority will be given to any applicants who are siblings of current students. • Second priority will be given to any applicant who is the sibling of former students. • Third priority will be given to applicants who are children of former students. • Fourth priority will be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school. • Fifth priority will be given to all other applicants. Out of zone applications close 3pm Wednesday 30 August 2017. Parents of students who live within the home zone should apply by Friday 25 August to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.

‘Online technology is essential in the classroom’ By Julia Czerwonatis

For the seventh year in a row debaters from Onslow and Newlands College faced each other to argue a controversial statement presented by the Johnsonville Lions Club. The topic for this year’s debate was “Online technology is essential in the classroom”. As hosts of the evening the

Lacemaking for Beginners 16th–17th September From 9.30am–3.30pm Learn the ancient art of how to make lace with Bridgett Parkin, an accomplished lace maker, and experienced tutor. Bridgett will build your confidence, by teaching the basic stitches and ways of combining these to produce different lace patterns. The advantage of our small class size is plenty of access to Bridget’s guidance and advice as you develop your skills throughout the weekend. WHERE: 7 Beauchamp Street, Karori COST: $100 members, $120 non-members, Plus lacemaking materials kit $50

Newlands College team with Shine Wu, Aneesa Delpachitra and Ryan Maass took the affirmative side of the debate and took the first stand in front of the audience. “Our world is constantly shifting and changing. Why should our classrooms remain in the past?” Shine opened the discussion. “In our exponentially grow-

ing society, whose workforce becomes more and more efficient and productive, we need to teach students how to utilise technology and how to become digital citizens,” Shine stated. Team mate Aneesa added the internet was a global classroom and provided endless up-todate information and tailored instructions for students with different abilities.

The opposing team, Onslow’s Ella Flavell, Oscar Cherian, and Dan Haward Jones, countered by saying teaching soft skills like empathy, face-to-face interaction and public speaking should be the focus in New Zealand schools. “Saying that online technology is ‘essential’ goes too far. It’s a blanket statement for a diverse space; the classroom,” Ella said. Co-debater Oscar said that not all professions would require extended online technology skills, and equipping all students with the necessary gear would be expensive and not affordable for every family. Yet, Onslow’s arguments weren’t strong enough to withstand the point the Newlands team made. Judges Ohariu MP Peter Dunne, Georgia Bloot-Wilson and Siobhan Davies, both members of the Victoria University Debating Society, appointed Newlands as the winners. “It was a very close debate,” Dunne said. “You have shown a very consistent performance – absolutely superb. “I believe, it’s the best I have seen in the last seven years.”

Heads up poets, bards and lyricists Ngaio and Crofton Downs residents will have a chance to show their artistic streak with two community events focussing around poetry coming up soon. A selection of photographs taken around Ngaio and Crofton Downs will be on view at the library as a starter for people to respond to or launch from, at the Cummings Park (Ngaio) Library from Monday August 14 to Monday August 28.

Participants can share the poems they write by adding them to the display. “Everyone is welcome to take part,” Kerry Hines, event organiser and member of Poetry Ngaio, said. “People can take whatever approach they want. They can write about the here and now, or let their response lead them into other kinds of writing – serious, funny, speculative, whatever they feel drawn to.”

By Laree Taula MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Eight northern Wellington high schools gathered in full force last week for the 2017 Northern Polyfest held at the Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua. Mana College had the honour of hosting the visual and audio extravaganza comprising performances by Mana, Porirua, Tawa, Aotea, Bishop Viard, Newlands, and Onslow Colleges, and Samuel Marsden Collegiate. The event began with a powhiri attended by Porirua Mayor Mika Tana, deputy mayor Izzy Ford, and MP for Mana Kris Faafoi – followed by a karanga, firstly to Bishop Viard as the 2018 host school.

Porirua College’s Kapa Haka group opened the stage with a powerful performance, followed by equally impressive performances from Tawa, Aotea and Bishop Viard. Newcomers Samuel Marsden, based in Whitby, treated the audience to their Taiko Group, an ancient Japanese form of percussion using large drums. From the beats of the Cook Islands, the sways of the Samoan Siva dance, echoes of the conch horn and slap dances, the audience was mesmerised by the melodies and rhythms of Kiribati, Tonga, Tokelau, and Tuvalu. Each performance showcased the uniqueness of each Pacific culture. It gave performers the

opportunity to truly shine and say with every bone in their body and beam of their smile, “This is me, this is my heritage.” The northern schools, and Pacific, and other cultures, were openly celebrating each other’s cultural heritage. Master of ceremonies Faafoi Seiuli dispersed many pearls of wisdom throughout the evening. “When you study to remember, you might not remember, but when you study to understand, you will remember. He acknowledged all the hard work the students had put in and the many parents who helped with uniforms. One thing was clear, Pacific fusion is alive and well north of the city.

Wellington research says flu kills 500 Kiwis each year New research from the University of Otago, Wellington, shows that influenza kills about 500 New Zealanders each year, and the risk of premature death is much higher for Māori, Pasifika, men and those living in relative poverty. “Influenza is probably New Zealand’s biggest single infectious disease killer, accounting for about 1.8 per cent of total deaths in NZ,” researcher Trang Khieu said. People living in the most deprived 20 percent of neighbourhoods are almost twice (1.8 times) as likely to die of influenza compared with those living in the least deprived areas, according to Trang’s study. Men are also more vulnerable, with males aged 65-79 years almost two times more likely to die of influenza than females. “These results show that it is important to target flu vaccination and other interventions to the most vulnerable groups,” Michael Baker, Trang’s co-author from the University of Otago, said.

It works by passing a light beam through the unwanted hair which generates heat to loosen it and disables the hair forming cells.

VUWSA joins the #WeHavePower movement The goal of getting 100 percent of tertiary students voting in this election was one all politicians should have, Victoria University of Wellington Students’ Association (VUWSA) president Rory Lenihan-Ikin said. VUWSA is one of the 15

students’ associations from New Zealand’s tertiary institutes who have signed onto the #WeHavePower campaign, launched on August 7 by the New Zealand Union of Students’ Association. “It should be the goal of every politician, every election, to get 100 percent of the people

they represent engaging in the democratic process,” Rory said. “The #WeHavePower campaign is about acknowledging young people are political and want to be involved. “If we mobilise the youth voting bloc this election, we could change the entire polit-

ical landscape and the issues that dominate the discussion.” With official launch of the #WeHavePower campaign VUWSA is now looking to recruit student volunteers to steer the campaign. “Much of what makes young people disengage with politics

is that they are told they are too young or too inexperienced to make an impact, but that’s not true,” Rory explained. “Students have a virtually untapped well of knowledge and experience we hope to draw on to make this campaign successful.”

Victoria’s students association is amongst 15 tertiary institution organisations that mobile students to vote this year. PHOTO: Keith Ivey

Fighting addiction with hypnotherapy After working as a Karori lifeguard and a trainer at the Karori Recreation Centre for over 12 years, Daniel Steadman is steering his community work and his career in a new direction. Daniel is hypnotising people to help them overcome addictions, anxieties and phobias. He has taken over his parent’s business idea – Christine and Hugh Steadman just opened a hypnotherapy clinic in Blenheim. “My mother Chris used to be a heavy smoker,” Daniel explained. “When we still lived in York she met a nurse from Hongkong who was working with a combination of hypnotherapy and mild electrical stimulation, a so-called Neuro-electric therapy to help clients control addictions.” Where willpower, patches and chewing gum had all failed, this treatment proved instantly effective in defeating Chris’s smoking habit. “It’s the combination of hypnotherapy and electrical stimulation that is unique about the approach,” Daniel explained. Hypnotherapy assists in finding a state of relaxation in which the mind becomes

more open to new suggestions and ideas from the therapist. When in a state of deep relaxation, the brain closes down much of the endless alerts and stimuli entering it from the outside world and is left free to concentrate on the words and ideas being imparted by the therapist. “I’m in no way in control of the clients’ minds, as the hypnotherapist I’m simply making suggestions that might help the client to break habits,” Daniel said. The therapy can help people with smoking addiction, eating disorders, weight loss, anxieties, and more. Daniel, who is currently working from his home in the heart of Karori, said he enjoyed the community aspect of his work. “I love that I have the chance to help people who have been living with a dragging problem for years and years. “It’s exciting to see them walking out of the therapy relieved and happy.”  If you want to learn more about Daniel and the Neuro Electric Therapy, visit capitalntrance.co.nz or contact Daniel via daniel@capitalntrance.co.nz.

After hearing the many ways hypnotherapy can help people I asked Daniel to help with my sugar addiction. Every meal HAD to be followed by a cake chocolate or dessert (sometimes all three) and I was skeptical that being hypnotized could change my life-long habit. But two 30 minute sessions later and I am in control of my eating. I don't feel any different as a person but the internal struggle when it came to sugar just isn't there anymore! - Scott

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: What issues do you have commuting in and out of Johnsonville?

Jake Theron, Johnsonville “I haven’t experienced many issues. It can get quite busy during peak hours, but I always find parking and there are always buses driving.”

Emilia Crundwell, Paparangi “I’m grateful to live here rather than in the Hutt, but there are pinch points where you get stuck in your car – especially around community services like the community centre.”

Iona Elwood-Smith, Johnsonville “The congestion is horrific. We are all stuffed down this one road, it’s insane. People are leaving home earlier and earlier to get to work in the morning.”

Neha Naveen, Johnsonville “To be honest I don’t have any issues.”

Andrew Gregory, Johnsonville “There’s increased traffic occurring in the Wellington region and the delays are getting worse.”

Frederik Smedinge, Newlands “I have just moved here but I have noticed that the roads are quite narrow.”

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville an intruder stole cheque books and bank cards from a house in Kipling Street which were used to extract cash by presenting them at various banks and locations. The offender was successful in cashing two cheques in different banks but when attempting to obtain larger amounts on later occasions the cheques were declined.

A white Isuzu Fargo van parked locked and secure overnight on the road in Bould Street was broken into via a jemmied rear right window which allowed the door to be opened by reaching through. A Samsung S7 Edge mobile was stolen from the front tray. A red Toyota Corolla sports car pulled into a service station in Johnsonville Road and pumped $90 worth of petrol and drove off

without offering to pay. CCTV footage provides full details of the vehicle and a description of the driver. A black Toyota Hilux utility parked locked and secure overnight in the driveway of a property in Truscott Avenue was broken into. The canopy was forced open and all of the power tools were taken. Hand tools were left. The alarm

had been set but it did not cover the canopy area and was not activated by the break in. It appears that offenders are exploiting this weakness in the security in vehicles with canopies. In Newlands a white Toyota Dyna truck was left parked and locked overnight on the street in Mark Avenue. Tools were stored in a locked tool box in the back of the vehicle.

During the night the box was jemmied open and several power tools were stolen. A man entered a large supermarket in Newlands Road and concealed a quantity of meat in his clothing. He left the store without offering to pay for the goods. A description of the man and the registration of the vehicle he used are with the police.

Recognising birdsong with artificial intelligence Researcher Victor Anton (right) and NEC’s artificial intelligence expert Paul Mathews. PHOTO: Supplied

New Zealand’s endangered native birds will sing a few extra notes when they hear artificial intelligence has joined the fight to increase their numbers. Victoria University of Wellington researchers are using ‘machine-learning’ software – a type of artificial intelligence – to analyse 25,000 hours of birdsong audio, saving tens of thousands of hours of listening time in a bid to uncover more effective forms of conservation. The technology popularly associated with driverless cars is helping researchers Victor Anton, Heiko Wittmer, and Stephen Hartley to analyse birdsong audio collected for a three-year study of currently threatened species the Hihi (Stitchbird), Tieke (Saddleback), and Kakariki (Red-crowned parakeet). Victor and his team have recorded tens of thousands of hours of birdsong using acoustic sensors at 50 locations in and around Zealandia – Wellington’s 225-hectare eco-sanctuary. Identifying the location and number of different bird calls in the audio will provide the data for Victor’s PhD thesis, which aims to identify factors influencing numbers of

threatened birds outside the eco-sanctuary. However, the prospect of sitting down to analyse so much audio threatened to overwhelm the researchers. So they called in NEC New Zealand to develop birdsong recognition technology to do the job faster and more accurately. “It’s difficult to recognise and count bird calls using audio recorded in a city – never mind the sheer number of hours of listening,” Victor said. “It’s not like we’re replacing unskilled labour – even experts sometimes struggle to identify the species of bird that made a call on this audio.” Using deep neural network software originally developed by Google engineers, NEC’s system learns to recognise different bird calls, effectively measuring the activity of each bird species at specific times and locations. Victor’s thesis will inform local councils and conservation organisations about effective management strategies for threatened wildlife in New Zealand urban areas. “Technology will ensure our conservation efforts focus in the right areas,” he said. “The prosperity of our endangered species

There are two main reasons why people renovate; to add to the comfort, use and value of the home, and to tidy it up to sell. Before you launch into renovations, take time to consider whether the expense and disruption is justified. Consider the tastes of po-

Meet the candidates Q&A SERIES

Andie Moore ACT Candidate for Ohariu List number: 16 1. Recent reports from the Ministry of Education show that Wellington schools struggle with overcrowded classrooms. How could schools be relieved?

Some will say we should decrease class sizes, but considering we’re in the OECD’s top five for public school investment, I’m not convinced spending more is the answer. What we could do is move towards bulk funding.

With the General Elections on our doorsteps, Wellingtonians will have the chance to decide who will represent their electorate for the next three years. The Independent Herald will introduce the candidates running for Ohariu and Wellington Central. We will ask them all the same three questions, plus one personalised question.

Instead of the Ministry dictating what schools spend their funding on, school boards decide what they need most in consultation with parents, staff and students. If schools feel they’re overcrowded, they can allocate money towards making classes smaller. If they want to prioritise building new classrooms or hiring more staff, they can move funds that way. It’s about trimming bureaucracy and allowing schools to do what they think is best. 2. What would you propose to enhance the electorate commercially and support local businesses?

Cut red tape, cut taxes. ACT is the only party dedicated to removing barriers to business. Ohariu is a thriving electorate for small business, and the only way to maintain this environment is by allowing businesses to keep and reinvest their own money. ACT would level the playing field by scrapping corporate welfare, to lower corporate tax to 25 percent. We’ll also pledge to not vote

for any increase in taxes. 3. Wellington’s infrastructure struggles to keep up with the population growth. What do you propose to improve traffic and public transport issues?

Road pricing and congestion charges. It’s about economics: it costs nothing to drive on a road, yet there’s only a certain amount of roads. What that means is you get people taking separate cars to work, clogging up roads, because apart from fuel costs, there’s little added cost to travelling independently. If you put a price on roads (making carpooling and public transport more desirable) you’ll get less congestion and fewer traffic jams. We’ll offset these new charges by reducing petrol tax (so this isn’t just a tax grab).

4. How do you, as a candidate for Ohariu, and the ACT values fit into this community?

I’ve lived in Khandallah most my life, attended Khandallah School and Onslow College, and worked in the local supermarket and on Onslow’s Board

of Trustees. Growing up here, I’ve come to know Ohariu as a community of young, productive and creative people of all backgrounds who want a responsible, tolerant government, and to get ahead. ACT’s ideal society is based on fairness, freedom and tolerance, where everyone has freedom of choice, the opportunity to prosper, and individuals and communities are given the tools to solve problems affecting them, rather than big government. I think these ideas really resonate with Ohariu residents. Because of these values, we’ve spearheaded Partnership Schools (helping many students in lower deciles pass NCEA and realise their potential), pioneered the End of Life Choices Bill and stood up for immigrants in Parliament, among many other things. We’re advocating the replacement of the RMA (pushing house prices down), raise the retirement age (making superannuation fairer for young Kiwis), cut taxes across the board and smarter crime policy. Only an ACT party vote can make these policies happen, and hold National to account.

Gordon Wilson Flats to remain on heritage list The Environment Court has decided that the Gordon Wilson Flats on The Terrace won’t be removed from list of heritage buildings saving the former social housing building from the wrecking ball. In April 2016, the Wellington City Council approved the rezoning of the flats, allowing

owner Victoria University to demolish the building. However, the Architecture Centre lodged an appeal against this decision. “Gordon Wilson Flats is a hugely important building in New Zealand’s architectural history,” Christine McCarthy, Architectural Centre president, said.

“It is a rare example of highrise social housing built under a National government, and was at the leading edge of progressive post-war architecture. The Gordon Wilson Flats, were used for social housing until 2012. Housing New Zealand deemed the building earthquake-prone; it has since

been empty. The Environment Court stated in their decision it seemed to them “that in a time of apparent scarcity of social housing in Wellington and the increase in the level of homelessness reported in the media that great care should be taken before demolition”.

Enrolment forms returned to sender Over 60,000 voters could miss out on voting in the September General Election after their enrolment update packs were returned marked “gone, no address”. Enrolment update packs were sent to 3.15 million enrolled voters at the end of June to

check their details were correctly listed on the electoral roll. Voters whose packs are returned to sender are taken off the electoral roll. “Those voters need to get back on the roll now so their vote will count this election,”

Alicia Wright, chief electoral officer, said. “If you’ve moved house, you will need to update your enrolment details online, or fill in a new enrolment form and return it to us.” People can enrol, check and update their details at elections.

Bedstop on Thorndon Quay, managed by Chris Hurst, has moved into larger and brighter premises. Chris says he made sure that all his customers have a great night’s sleep. PHOTOS: Supplied

After ten years, Chris Hurst has just moved Bedstop across the road to 153 Thorndon Quay, the sunny side of the street. “The new store is larger and brighter. This means that we have now been able to significantly expand our range of beds,” Chris said. “We have always endeavoured to offer everything from great value slat frames and mattresses for students and customers on a tight budget, through to luxury ensembles.” “Our extra floor space has now enabled us to increase our range of Sealy beds, which complements our King Koil bed range. These two well known ‘worldwide’ brands mean that in our new shop we have more of the latest sleep technology on display.” “We have had many loyal customers over the years

who have purchased beds from us, then have returned to purchase further beds for their parents, children, new homes and holiday homes. This in turn has led to deliveries being made as far north as Auckland and as far south as Christchurch.” “At Bedstop, we appreciate that our customers lead very busy lives, so in order to accommodate their wishes, we offer deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays, plus weekdays including after 5pm.” So if you want great service, expert advice, beds from the world’s leading manufacturers and a great night’s sleep, make sure you visit Bedstop Thorndon.  Bedstop on 153 Thorndon Quay is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm, and Saturday to Sunday, 10am4pm.

One of the most common “problems” people ask us about is “How do I stop my puppy jumping up.” Back in the “Dark Ages” of dog training (when I started 30 odd years ago) misinformed experts said this was “a sign of dominance – the dog wants to push you around” - but this is far from the truth. Often jumping up is a natural release of pent-up energy and excitement. It is an appeasement gesture that we often accidentally reinforce (reward) by petting or touching them while up on two legs. And people find it hard to give a consistent message – it was okay yesterday while wearing jeans, but not now in office clothes. Fixing the problem by punishment is not recommended. That has fallout issues – it teaches your dog to distrust people and their actions. So how do you fix this? Pretty easily actually! In trainer-speak “Redirect the old greeting behaviour into a more mutually acceptable one and reward the new response only.” What does that mean? Here are some specifics from our classes. 1. Cue “Sit” just as puppy approaches. Direct them to Sit before meeting and greeting - EVERY time. Practise with a person who turns

and walks briskly away if the dog (on-lead) attempts to jump up, but returns to reward when the dog offers a sit instead. 2. Greet the puppy down low under the chin. Slip a thumb in the collar under the chin with one hand, while petting with the other to help this. 3. Aim to remove attention as soon as jumping up starts. Wait for it to cease (momentarily at first) then quickly turn back and cue Sit with hands going low to greet. 4. Toss a toy to redirect an enthusiastic retriever when first arriving home. Once they have something in their mouth energy will be horizontal and not so vertical. 5. Think prevention. Hang a lead by the door to have it on hand when unexpected visitors arrive. Use it to help manage those first few moments or let it drag. Stand on it to deter over enthusiasm. With good greeting manners your dog will be a hit with your friends, as well as strangers on the street, complimenting that well trained dog you have - so well worth the little extra effort.
