You are so welcome. I hope some of that helps a bit. You are absolutely correct; training the humans is truly more than half of the equation.

Also, with a deaf dog, because you don't have the tool of voice reinforcement/correction, or pitch change, it might be worth it to take the loss on some high value treats and allow your guests to toss them to your dog (ONLY, of course when he is calm and displaying behaviors you want to encourage.). Cut them into tiny pieces. I promise you, eventually he will accept one (or a pile), but regardless, the appearance of treats will help him realize these guests are friends, are welcome, and treats rain from the sky when they come in the door. I need to reread your post to see how old your dog is, but as they mature and start to guard their home and humans, the raining of treats upon guests entering becomes much more important.

Love the idea is toys at the door. I have trained my known visitors to not knock. It ramps up Emmett barking and being overly excited. I also use hand and voice commands and the watch me signal.

He is very suspicious of guests. He decides when to greet company and approaches very slowly then allows a quick pet. Unfortunately- when they pass the test - he usually jumps up unexpectedly. Telling company to ignore Emmett unless he is showing good manners and until he wants to be petted has worked wonders. He is also a total nut job for the pretty ladies. He is a known ladies man.

We donít get many visitors so it is tough. He is also a very good guard dog. So my issues are with barking and chuffing.

Both of my boxers have been instinctively gentle with senior citizens. My Mom who is 80 just visited with her husband and Emmett wAs very gentle. My MIL is another story. That is Emmettís favorite visitor. Emmett is not allowed to say hello until she is seated on a chair. That reduced chances he will knock her down.
