    I shut mine in another room, unless the guest is happy to be slightly violated.

    Ive never been able to train mine to be calm around new people, so this is the easiest option.

    Ive heard that if you make sure everyone who comes into the house ignores your dog, they soon learn that being calm gets them rewarded with affection. You arent even meant to fuss your dog yourself if he/she greats you enthusiatically. Only fuss them when calm and quiet.

    If people come to mine to visit then they have to except my boys.
    That doesn't apply to meter readers etc

    I wish I knew, I hate being short with them in the morning when they see me cos they are so happy, but my lurcher practically puts his paws around my neck and the terriers dance about and jump up. I try and push them away as you definately dont want them doing it with visitors or kids but it is hard. Once they have their initial ecstasys they generally respond to a little push and a command to sit down, then if you go out for even 5 minutes you have it all again. I dont like dogs jumping in your face, but I have to say mine dont sniff peoples nooks and cranies so at least I onluy :)have the one problem

    Ours are not Too bad.. We had them at oh mums when his sister arrived and both dogs were shaking because I had put them in a Down as the car came in the drive.
    Though as soon as Kate looked at them Dixie was up all over them but they were firm and told her down.

    I would shut them in a room unless the visitors will either ignore or tell them to get down.
