Do your mom's customers like Sinister?
There are 10 hair stylists that work there but usually only 6 or 7 are there at a time so it's usually pretty busy but Sinister is so well behaved so having him there isn't overwhelming. The customers LOVE Sinister. People actually request his presence when they have an appointment, they usually tell me a week or 2 in advance and then remind the day before and the day of, lol. The kids love him and they are all over him. I know that not everyone likes dogs so I have him lay behind the reception desk and if someone comes in and acknowledges him then he is allowed to go greet them. I have seen even the most unsocial or "mean" customers smile and get all hairy from petting him.

I actually just posted photos of him at the salon a couple of days ago on Facebook. He was there Wednesday and yesterday.

Oh I know this feeling. Both mine do this, but my female is more vocal and not happy if I walk away, even if it's my son with her.

llombardo Smart Maybe respect? My female doesn't take treats from strangers, but she will take them from people I'm comfortable with. She will take the treat but she spits it out(she did this with my boss)it's almost liked she is humoring them. Your dog loves grandma and respects her, but his loyalty is to you.

HarleyTheGSD I agree with loyalty. It does not sound like he's nervous, he just wants to be wherever you are.

SummerGSDLover Amazing loyalty of the GSD.
