I would hope that you parents would consider that if the dog has some blindness and joint problems , it may be a good idea to put the dog up when you have company over. It is just a good parental decision and will take care of this issue. Your dog was probably startled when approached from the back bc of the partial blindness, and , may fear being hurt with a sore leg joint. I would ask your parents to consider the fact that your dog is a good dog and needs a quiet place to feel safe when you have guests over.
