Every dog gets excited when a new person comes to the house. Whether it is happy or angry, it all depends on your dog‘s character. You can’t expect a guard dog to be happy every time a guest arrives. But we will talk about a dog, who will be happy greeting guests. Sadly, not everyone who comes to your home enjoys your dog. They do not appreciate your dog jumping on them, trying to lick their faces and, least of all, the excess fur they leave behind. Some people are scared of dogs and can’t tell the difference between a happy or an angry dog, and may feel the need to run from your home. If you are an open person with many friends you should start training your pet good manners early. The way your dog greets your guests shows whether or not your dog is well trained. When you come home, make your dog sit down. It has to understand that you will give it your attention, but only after you put your coat and shoes away. Don’t pay any attention to your excited friend. No matter what he does, pretend you don’t notice him. After he calms down, you can greet him in a calm way, showing him that you have missed him while you were away and even give him a treat. After you are sure your pet is trained to stay calm when you get home, ask some of your friends for help. Have them come over often to get your pet used to them. Your dog will start to show how glad he is to see your guests as well, as long as your friends make sure to give the “sit” command. When your dog is calm, have your friend offer a treat. If your dog doesn’t obey the command, have your friend turn their back and pretend to leave. Try again in a few moments. It’s very important for the dog to stay calm after he sits. Try not to make any sudden movements. Your helper should pet the animal, too. After that, you and your friend can go to the dining room, pretending you are tired and need a rest. The dog will follow you and depending on your behavior it will figure out how to act. When you are sure your dog knows your friend, ask other friends to help in obtaining the same good behavior. Soon, your dog will understand that he needs to behave around guests and will realize that he will be rewarded in the end.
