Having someone encourage him to bark and get excited must be very aggravating! My pup carries on too, but he's trained to wait in his crate while I get ready (and only released when quiet) and also has to wait at the door for the release word - which again, he only gets when his whining stops. So this is reinforcing him to 'relax' somewhat, although he's still excited. If someone was encouraging him in his frenzied state, IDK how loud he'd get, lol! Very! You can work on this when your mother isn't in the picture, no problem. Good luck
