Hey, I'm pretty new around here and thought I'd ask a quick question. My boyfriend and I have a 9 month old black lab puppy named Rex and he is pretty much awesome! He loves pretty much any person or animal that walks in his path. Last weekend we had a party at our house, which is definitely not a common occurrence at all, maybe once every 3 months. Maybe 12 people over all at once, no music, maybe some video games at times. Poor Rex was scared out of his mind the whole time. I have never seen him not run to greet anyone who comes to our door and all he did all night was cower on my bed. I felt so bad that after checking on him every 15 minutes I just gave up on the party and sat upstairs and read a book beside him the rest of the night. Was it just the commotion? He has been around large groups of people before, why did this upset him? Should I not have people over again or should I try to get him accustomed to it? I felt so bad, I didn't know what else to do but just stay beside him. Any advice would help. I know it's not a huge problem, but I just want to know if there is anything I can do better.
