|mirza121||I think this is normal. Dogs do get excited to see kids move and want to follow them. If Lulu is older than 2 years than this should normally not happen. But if she is younger than it is ok. Do update on age and her current behavior.|

|Nigel||Zoey was kind of like this when she was younger. She even charged at me one day. It was raining and she was on the deck, I walked up with my hoodie on and she took off after me. I just walked through her as I calmly said "it's me you dummy" and she was fine. It's like she over reacted to stuff, like teenagers do. As she got a little older it became less and less. She is three now and never does it, even when a stranger comes to the door, she only wants to see them, but that's it, no barking etc... I can only guess that as she matured, she became more confident.|

Sounds similar to my dog perhaps?
Zelda will bark at family members or me when we come home. It is her excited bark. Its very distinct from her stranger bark, which is a lot deeper.
Her bark for "i want to play" is verrry high pitched and she does it to my sisters dog a lot.
She also has a frustrated or i need to go out to pee or i need to have water bark. It's a much more intense tone i would say, it gets my heart rate going when its quiet and then all of a sudden she does that bark!
I guess i can tell a lot now about her body language and the pitches and tones of her different bark and their meaning. Sometimes its still confusing for me to tell, but in general i know what she is trying to "say".
If its ongoing and it something that really concerns you, i would recommend you to have a private trainer come to your house to see it for themselves and help you from there.

Without seeing her, it is hard to say the motivation. If it is fear or guarding you obviously want to get it under control right away.
Regardless, she would be losing the privilege of being off leash when out back so that she doesn't get the opportunity to practice the behavior.

Honestly the 2 times that it has happened I have told my kids to shut the door so that she couldn't get to them cuz it freaked us all out.
I guess the reality is that doing this could potentially be training her to not do it since her wanting to get to the kids would be the treat and t h e kids shuting the door would be the negative response.
I would say that is possible that it's just her being really excited. I don't remember seeing any raise hackles or anything

maybe she's excited to see the kids, she wants to play. maybe
she's running towards the kids and barking from excitement.
after barking and running towards the kids what does she do
when she comes in contact with them?

Is this aggression? Should I be worried? How do I train this?
Lulu has started some new behavior. A couple of times in the past 2 weeks when my kids come outside after her and I are already outside she will start to bark and charge at the door. It's almost like she reacts before she knows that its my kids .
I'm not sure what this is because under normal circumstances she's completely great with my kids and everyone else.
It's almost as if she sees them as a potential Intruder because we're outside and it's our space? I don't know?
How do I train this out of her? The two times that this happened I told the kids to shut the door before she can get to them. But that's only going to potentially prolong the potential problems.
How would you train a dog to handle this? Because most of the time with the kids walk out it's not an issue. Or at least I never seem to be before now.
