Default Over protective or possessive

Hello,

Looking for some help with my 1.5 old male German shepherd. I have been reading online about over protective or possessive gsds. My dog is well socialized I bring him every where. He goes to dog daycare on a regular basis and the employees at the facility say that he is wonderful, super friendly and social. But at home if someone that comes over that he hasn't know sense he was young he barks and puts up his hackles right away. I put his prong collar and leash on if I know someone is coming over that he doesn't know when. He still barks and puts his hackles up but I can control him and have him sit by me and calm him down. But you can still tell he is tense. He eventually will smell the person than ignore them.
