I can honestly say that we are working hard on getting Wille calm when people step inside the front door. Approximately 50% of the “scene: people are coming into our home”, he is calm and stays in the kitchen. But I have to work hard for that 50%. He knows he should stay in the kitchen but objects and I always have to ask him to stop whining or jumping.
So sometimes I take out the compost grid to avoid discussions and be able to talk to those who step into my hall. A quick fix is pretty damn nice when you just want to greet friends welcome.
