It depends on my work schedule. Sometimes I hardly get to see my guests if I am on a shoot, other times I am home the whole day. On Most evening though, I will be home.
One of my dogs barks a lot of new faces. He eventually calms down after a few minutes but his initial barking can be rather annoying.
