    Default Overly Excited

    Hello all,
    My Marly is great but like every dog there always something. She seems to get really excited whenever she see anyone. She gets infront of them and doesnt let them walk. She just flat out all over them. It is kind of embarrassing when people come over honeslty. Luckily shes a pretty pup so it balances out haha!!

    I wanted to find out if someone has experienced this and if it is just a puppy phase (shes 5 1/2 months) or should I start some obedience training?

    Well I am no help in this department cuz my boys get crazy when we have people over. They are trained in every other department for the most part but as soon as that doorbell rings I am in trouble and since we dont live near family and friends I dont really have a way to train them properly. I am sure there is a way but I dont know it. Your pup is adorable by the way!

    I would def start some obediance training. You can do it yourself if you have the time. I am an adamit Dog Whisperer watcher and he has alot of great tips on how to curve that behavior. One thing you can do is when people come over have her on a training lead. before they come in tell her to sit and always reward for the good behavior(training treats are nice)when they come and she is sitting tell her to sit again. you can also have the guest come up to her after you get the first part down and direct her to sit with a (reward) eventually she will learn that if she sits that she will be rewarded therefore curbing the behavior. You can also do the laydown command for when they come in after you get sit learned. hope this helps

    Good advise gatorfan! I can't think of much more than except I know Caesar also suggests you have your guests ignore your pup until she calms down. What is it he says, no touch, no talk, no eye contact????

    Great advice @gatorfan85 as always. In my case tho we dont have enough visitors to "practice" I think is our problem. I do think I will leash the boys when we expect people tho from now on, cant hurt any thats for sure.

    I had the same issue with Georgia who is 100lbs so she could potentially hurt someone when butt bumping them. I had a friedn come over so I could practice with her and now she sits or goes and lays down on the couch after we meet and great(stranger aggressive) thru the screen door. I have been so Happy with her since then becuase i can actually have people come in without her big butt pushing them into the corner or jumping on them.

    Well there is hope for us then. My boys are nice and love everyone but boy do they wanna be the ones to say hello first and not everyone loves them as much as we do.

    We don't have much company either. We have family members in and out all the time, but Gertie and Ida know them well. So it's ME they attack when I come in. I can't take a step without triping over someone.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Great advice! Be consistent I think is very important, too! Hope it goes well!
    @gatorfan85 wouldnt that be awesome to have Caesar join, he was suppose to come to Ontario recently but he couldnt bring one of his dogs because he is a pitbull and there is a pitbull ban in Ontario...it was in the newspaper today!
