I know. The worlds full of "All dogs love me" folks. Lol. If you don't want the conflict, maybe board him instead of taking him.So, crate him then? That's definitely an option, but they will be highly offended (they are "dog people" who don't really know that much about dog behavior). Also, we go there, with the dogs for the holidays. We can bring the crate and keep him locked up, but it won't set well with the in-laws.
