I had to do the same with Harry. He was ok with my husband's parents but even that made me nervous. We usually just crated him.

I'm not talking about random strangers, I'm talking about invited guests. I don't really care what anyone does in their own house, I'm just saying that I would find it off-putting and probably wouldn't accept invitations.

I do require my dogs have an "enough" or settle type of command.

I don't like people to fear my dogs if they're friends who belong here and that is why I settle them and encourage friendly interactions in my house (this almost never happens in the car, this is a "sorry, don't bother" place).

It's preference and type of dog ownership.

I don't believe anyone should have a guard prone dog without strict control so an off command is essential.
See, this would be all I would ask of a friend or family member with a guardy dog. I don't want to be rushed and "held" if I've been invited over any more than I want someone to come around the corner holding a baseball bat if I've been invited.

Oh, well, yes, I agree with you then. When we're expecting someone, we're sure to either have Chloe put up or on a leash (or if we feel she'll get along with them right off the bat, we're at the door to greet them with her). We have a long drive and it is a dead end drive at that, so between the sound of a car and the dogs barking, we typically have lots of notice before someone can actually get out of their car and up to the door, even if the aren't expected.

I was reading your comment as, "I wouldn't want to go over to a house with a dog that would meet me aggressively/guardy at the door every time and the owner would always have to do X with the dog to get me to enter safely."

Maybe I didn't make myself clear. They don't hold invited guests at the door.....just people that walk in my door. I have a select few friends and family that always walk in...the dogs rush the door then realize it is someone they know and go all wiggly.

Not sure why you took offense to my post. No big deal to me cause I work hard to train them for reliable responses regarding the door.

Ah my mistake I must have misunderstood this...

Not sure why you think I took offense to your post. I didn't take offense at all, I was just making a statement as part of the discussion. Must be one of those internet "tone" things. *shrug*

I just might not be making myself clear. I don't let them act inappropriately with invited guests. Just people that think it is ok to walk in my house without knocking.

When we expect people, I do the same thing Adrienne does with Rage. As long as we welcome them in & encourage friendly interactions she's fine. I have absolutely no doubt she would bite a strange man entering the house (women are fine, lol). Then she usually just lays around like the other three.

No, I understand after your clarification. I misunderstood your earlier post. (ETA: Like, I actually misunderstood it, I wasn't trying to be snarky by saying I misunderstood it.)
