Should dogs be taught manners?

The doorbell rings. Bella and Mia, my two loyal dogs, bark on cue. I let them get it out of their system, then I hush them. When I answer the door, they rush pass me and try to sniff and jump on my poor guest. Of course, I gently scold them as I pull them down and order them to leave my guest alone.

Do my dogs have bad manners? I believe so. Should owners teach their dog manners? I think so. I've seen the display of dog with no manners more times than I want to remember. I cringe as I watch an owner's dog jump, sniff, and beg for attention. All I can think of, is comparing them to a young child impatiently pulling on the pants leg of their parent while they try to talk to another adult. Do we tell the child to stop? Yes. So, why don't we tell our pets to stop?

Another Bella-custom dog art piece.

I just finished a 3 panel signature art piece for a lady in Pennsylvania. I think her dog's name is Bella like my dog.
This is one of the proofs.

She wanted hot pinks, blues, oranges, yellows, and greens. I like doing neon looking dog art and hope that these colors are to her likings.

I'm waiting on her approval and if everything looks good, I'll be sending it off to the printers.
