Owners have a dog who is VERY friendly and may greet you to say hello, we are teaching her to be a good girl but as she is still young and excitable she may jump up to say hello, she likes to splash on the top step of the pool also. She may also bark to say hello that doesn't last long as she gets used to you! Or if she hears any noises in the house.
