    Thats similar to what I do.
    I come home, go outside clean up (no pats), feed the pond fish, go inside get changed then it's play time.

    I've onl;y really started doing this the last 4 months, Griffen still has a winge if I dont come straight out but it's no where near as bad as it used to be.
    It's hard not to give in to his crys when he looks so sad

    I agree that ignoring an over-excited dog, or one suffering from separation anxiety, for a few minutes when arriving home is the best way I know of to calm them down. The moment they are calmer, praise and full attention. Yep, it works a treat. Would recommend it any day. Do. Have.

    But I don't do that!!!

    I come home and depending on what my mood is, how much time I have to greet my dog, what I'm carrying or not - I will either greet my dog calmly and the dog will reciprocate in same, or I will go totally stupid, get down on the ground into play invite mode, and act worse than the ruddy dog!

    When I get home from school, Mollie is either inside, watching at the dor, or usually over at the sandpit with Boof.
    Mollie gets VERY excitable and its hard not to be AS excited as her! :-) I usually tell her to "SIT", while I get my bag out of the car and she will be STRAINING so hard to sit perfectly, but her bum wiggles on the ground and she twitches painfully towards me, its very cute.

    Most of the time I flop myself on the ground and she gos SPAZ giving me kisses and rolling onto her back for tummy scritches! I love her so much <3

    My two are VERY affectionate

    Sassy is just a mummys girl, always trying to lick you and wants you to be around her. When we got her (far too young which was a silly newbie mistake by me) I used to wrap her in a blanket and rock her to sleep to stop her from whining LOL now she still tries to climb on my lap but since we have done obedience training thats a no no unless invited!

    Sam is a big boofhead and will run rings around you when you first come outside because he is so excited your out there with him. He loves to stand near you when your pegging the clothes on the line and so forth and whenever he is sick he just wants me to nurse his head while he lays down. When he broke his leg thats all he wanted.

    So yes, very affectionate

    gyps will some times (on very rare occasions) push the top of her head into you this is her cuddle. and the only other time she shows affection is when we get home and she runs around and finds something to give to me (today she found a bra)(i have no idea where she got it from!!!)

    Seems Decca is similar to all the rest of the Staffy's on here


    If I crash out on the couch and fall asleep, I will quite often wake up with him curled up asleep with his head resting on my legs

    When I come home in the car, Pretty just ambles over to welcome us home. Pups are in the pen for safety and hubby lets them out as their exhuberance is a bit much first up for me. That time seems to be the only time the down command is not always adhered to. If I have to un pen them I find a chicken wing stuffed in each gob when the gate is opened works well.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Ziggy is very affectionate. We often joke that if we didn't have arms, she would start licking our faces and not stop until we drowned in her slobber. She tries to jump up when we get home however we have been discouraging that by telling her to sit, which works mostly.

    Asher is very affectionate. He is always looking for a sook up. He loves planting his paws on my shoulders and just stands there soaking up the rubs and affection. I can't go anywhere without him following me. Stays with me, even to go to loo. No I don't let him in but he'll be laying at the door until I come out...lol. If you stop patting him he will move his paws to let you know he is still there. If he's laying on the floor he loves belly rubs. Stop rubbing his belly and he will deliberately bump you with his feet as if to say, "Don't stop"

    leo is affectionate, I love hearing his paws scampering down the hallway at 5.30am when hubby lets him in, then I get a grunting licking puppy talking (hes quiet vocal)good morning kisses, before he plonks himself between the two kids and sleeps in for a while.

    He knows a good spot when he sees one though, I often come in and find him using one of the kids as a headrest or vice versa.

    He likes his alone time too, right now he is curled up under a mink blanket on the bed. He will come out when he hears me start cooking in the kitchen though lol
