Good morning Doodle Family!!
I have some training questions for bringing a new baby in the household. I am having a little boy and my due date is June 4th, 2014. Winston is amazing with little kids (though if we'd let him, he'd never stop kissing them). I love that you can see his attitude change when he is around children. He's much more gentle. He also has changed when it comes to interacting with me. He seems to know he needs to be more gentle with me, but when Ryan comes home, he is ready to get crazy and play with daddy.
Since the baby will be here before we know it, I know I will be having many more vistors at my home. My question is how I can work on him not getting SOOO excited when guests come into my house. He'll jump and run around and just act crazy (in a fun way). I am sure some guests find it annoying and Ryan and I are usually right there to make sure he isn't jumping. I don't know if he'll just grow out of it (he's 1.5 yrs old), but I would like to get it under control sooner than later.
When Ryan and I come home from being away from the house for a significat of time Winston will be so excited and want to jump, but we'll turn our back to him until he sits/calms down. He's doing great with that, but I can't expect every guest to come in my house and turn their back to him until he calms down.
