wolfy dog I have stopped the "visitors giving treats" with DDog as a guinea pig from the very start. I love it. He doesn't even have a clue that other people can have something for him. I want to make others as uninteresting as possible, which seems to start paying off at the door. It showed in class when the trainer tried to bribe him with food in a sit stay and he didn't buy it (hi, hi)

My mom is 70 something. 5 years ago I would not mind if my dogs jumped on her, but she is getting older and it would be horrible if she got knocked down and injured. I would be devastated if my dogs rudeness injured my senior mom.

I see C: You are right. This is the insight I was look for...

My dad is getting older. I wouldn't want them to do that to him in a few more years...

Your dad was inadvertently rewarding them by touching and interacting with them. Hard not to do when a 90lb GSD is in your face. But if you have them leashed, you can control that excitement.

Awe...I don't think my dad will be over again for a while.

But I LOVE the throwing treats on the floor idea to keep their paws on the floor!

Thank you so much for this!!!

I personally don't mind them going crazy for my dad (do you?). But for guests I'm careful.

Zeeva Thoughts?

wolfy dog I would have leashed them before your father came to visit. I personally do not like the hoopla at the door, even though people don't seem to mind. I want my dogs calm and take the cues from me.

Zeeva Was it inappropriate of them to behave this way? Out of control? I can usually get them to calm down when guests come over, but this time I felt a little undignified...especially when they didn't listen...

MyHans-someBoy Yeah, I'd say they missed him a little!
