My only complaint is that they won't notice Max until he's in line of sight of them, even where you're in the next room making all kinds of ruckus.
They're often bright, highly opinionated and can cause quite a ruckus if someone happens to disagree with their sentiments.
Chances are, he won't even remember what all the ruckus was about a few hours later.
I quickly discovered one of my neighbor's was dog sitting for a Boxer that definitely didn't like other dogs, and this was what had caused all the ruckus.
Realize your guests' priorities and you won't be disappointed if you turn up with either a large ruckus or intimate gathering.
