I takes her almost an hour just to settle down after I get home. Understandably since she's been crated for 4 hours.
Liyah (5 mo) would be the same way when I get home I'm sure, but I immediately take all 3 b's outside on leads and then let them off to chase each other around the yard. They all come and greet me…I do kneel down to greet them so there is no need to jump up. Brando on occasion will be the acrobat balancing on his hind legs so that I pet him. Ruby's preferred method of greeting is to sit and wiggle...she knows she'll get loved on when she does that. Once they've burned off some energy, about 15 minutes later I take them for a walk.
Liyah is so funny...here way of greeting is more of a lie down in the happy play posture with her tail wildly going back & forth, ears back and starts talking and singing to me. I love it, she is so wiggly.
In general I do try to keep my coming and going low key...they get more attention after I've been home for a little bit.
