Territorial

Hello all, I have a question. I just moved into my first new place and Sasha has developed a territorial aggression. She never has at my house with my parents, she was very happy to meet anybody, but now the minute she hears a knock she starts barking uncontrollably and lunging. I Canot control her, she is not a. Aggressive dog what so ever. We go to the dog park everyday. If she knows the person there is no problem, but I don't want her to get used to this behavior. I want to cut it out now any suggestions. By the way she is 1 and we have been livin here since Friday

Thanks all

It sounds to me like she's unsure (afraid) because she's now in a new place and your parents aren't there, either. So I don't think it's territorial aggression, but I've been wrong many times before. If it were me, I'd put her in her crate when someone comes to the door until she's more settled into the new place.

Yeah I have been putting her in her crate but she keeps barking non stop and stresses out alot, it seems to make her worse. I think she is quite unsure here too
