Is this normal right now? Or are we not introducing visitors properly...
    When new people come into your home, institute the "no touch, no talk, no eye contact" rule. That means they must act like the puppy isn't even there. Then, let the dog introduce himself in the dog's time. That should take some of the pressure off the pup.

    Ahhh, we didnt follow that rule. We will do that from now on. We only have had two people over and are now afraid to invite more. Thank you so much for the advice Vicki.
