Couple questions First, Blaze does well with people. He's good at ignoring when told, and loving on people when given the chance. But, we seem to have a problem with the greeting. He tends to run straight up to the person, barking like mad, then stop when he gets up to them. He's *never* hurt anything and I don't think he ever would. He just runs up to them while barking mad like he's so big and mean. But when he gets up to the person, he stops and gets all giddy. So when ever someone new came over I always made sure to lead him over to that person slowly when they first got here so he can see there is a new person in the house. He generally does very good with this. But I can't seem to get through to him that he doesn't need to do this run, bark, stop thing. Any ideas? It can even be as simple as I'll be in the kitchen talking to the new person, he'll hear us, run down to the kitchen barking, then stop when he sees the person. The other thing is the dogs were boarded at the vet while we were gone on vacation last week. Normally he's very good with the other dogs and commotion. But this last time they had to stay for 10 days - longest they've ever stayed. And the vet tech said she noticed Blaze would lunge and growl at dogs that walked by his kennel. She also ask when he was going to get neutered. I said soon, because he's mature and I would like to get him snipped before college next year. Do you think having him neutered would make any difference with that? I think it might a little, but I also think it's probably a combination of high high stress in that place and being away from his home/me for so long. Thoughts? Thank you!
