Aw, no one? That is such a shame, it was a great idea. Then again I can't find anyone with a calm older dog who is prepared to sit in a room and let my puppy practice calm hellos with a fast exit when she gets panicky. I didn't think to offer cake though.
I'm low carbing otherwise I'd volunteer to eat cake for you.
Perhaps they didn't think you were serious . Perhaps you should just ask one person and spend a while repeating the performance IYSWIM . That's how Victoria Stillwell does it and it seems to work for her . You could have a quick comic relief bake sale with all your cake .
They are generally good boys but I have a real problem with them 'greeting' visitors - the Lab jumps up and headbutts and the GSD stands and barks.
I have bitten the bullet and announced an open house for this reason. I have invited about 50 people with the proviso that it may take 10 minutes for me to let them in, but once past the threshold tea and cake will be provided.
