Question: 
My 8 month old beagle "shakes" when visitors (even if they have visited many times before) come to our home. He also "shakes" when looking out the car window. Is this typical behavior?
Answer: 

If you mean that he "shakes" as in: nervous (quivering with fear), then I would say that is not typical behavior of a well-socialized dog. If he is nervous about visitors and the riding in the car, you could work with a good positive reinforcement trainer or behaviorist to help socialize him. If his "shaking" is excitement, more socialization would help there too because he would be more accustomed to visitors and car rides and they wouldn't be so exciting.
