Default Millie update and questions!

Hi everyone, I haven't been active on the site for a while as we have been busy converting the garage into a gym.
Millie is doing great, she is full size now and fully potty trained.
Just had a couple of questions... When it gets to mid afternoon Millie has a hyper half an hour where she runs around the room and gets really excited, has anyone else experienced this?
Another question I had is how do I calm Millie down when we have visitors? As soon as new people come into the house she gets all hyper again? I wouldn't mind if she calmed down after a little bit but it can last ages and she jumps up on everyone and gets really excited. I thought this maybe usual puppy behaviour?
Here's some snaps of my little Millie!

Millie is such a cutie! She reminds me so much of Pablo, exactly the same body shape head etc she's a wee stunner!!!
As for the Hyper thing she's still a really young dog so it could be that or if you know people are coming over you could get your guests to get her to sit and give her a treat etc it'll take her mind off all the new people and snap her attention back to food! Works wonders with Pabs X

Millie is all grown up! She's absolutely gorgeous too! I agree about her being so young still. All of mine were really hyper in that first 1-2 yrs. she will mellow down eventually. As for guests, I agree with Cait. Thanks for sharing pics, we miss you guys!

Use a leash to calm her down. As soon as she settles she gets a treat. After a while, you can take the leash off, and have the guests toss treats to her as soon as she 'settles'.

OMG! Your puppy might be the CUTEST short haired EVER!!! I honestly never felt the incline toward short haired chihuahuas but your Millie definitely makes me reconsider! The Blue gene in your pup is so gorgeous!!

As for the puppy getting hyper, I really can't grasp what you mean but when I first come in I don't even pay attention to my dogs. I do my thing like washing hands or setting my bag down. I think I started doing this after seeing some type of dog training video because it said that when you pay attention to a puppy positively then it's like a reward and they will keep on repeating that behavior. It could just be because he is a puppy too because I really can't grasp the extent of his hyperness!!

Anyway! Cute puppy!!!

Oh my, Mille has grown and she is beautiful. Thanks for sharing some pictures of her.

My two , who are over a year old still continue to get a early evening burst of energy and play and run around like crazy, more then other times during the day. I never called it being hyper, it just seems to be their time of day to burn off some extra energy.

As far as the guest thing, I also agree with Caitlin. Using treats to show her how you'd like her to act when guests come worked for mine too and after constant repetition of doing this, eventually we didn't have to give treats anymore.

I was actually just showing my hubby a photo of your Pablo he is so sweet! I agree that they are similar shape etc. Millie could be his little girlfriend!
I would love to breed Millie in the future although she is very small so will have to consider that when she's about older and decide whether to breed or not.
Thank you for the advice will definitely try that next time we have visitors x
