I read in Jan Fennel's book, the Dog Listener, to apply the 5 minute rule. That is, when you come in, ignore the dog for 5 minutes. Walk past, do not make eye contact, do not greet, speak or anything. Keep moving, make yourself a cup of tea. Then, when the dog has calmed down, call them to you. She explains it better than I can, but that the gist of it ... and it works.
