Default Thank goodness for barking dogs!

Last nite the door bell rang, Hooch went into his barking, it was a young lady and some guy with like a trench coat on! I cracked the door and asked if I could help them, Hooch is still bumping against me from behind. She said "oh I know you have a dog, I'm scared"' but then said they were cleaning carpet for free and if I had any dirty carpet! I said no and shut the door! My neighbor let them in and they were over there over 2hours! I googled free carpet cleaning and it had to be that vaccum cleaner company that goes door to door, takes up your whole evening to pressure you into buying a vaccum! So thanks Hooch for puttin up the fuss!

Ha! This is why I had such a hard time with quieting Titan when the doorbell rang.. I WANT him to let that person know he's there.. we just never got to the quiet stage, lol. By the time I get to the door.. the person has usually backed off to the end of my driveway.. waiting for me to come outside.

You are lucky they were real solicitors. I would not have opened the door. Hard core criminals will kill the dog first. Maybe paranoid but still.....

I think this to, then I think that they better be able to reload at my house because one clip might not be enough for all of us.

I let Zeus "answer" the doorbell or door knocker in his own very territorial way. Then while the action is still hot I look either down on the visitor from upstairs where my office is or through the keyhole viewer in the door, all the while encouraging Zeus to keep up the racket.

If it's someone I know and want to speak with I'll crate Zeus with a single word command, "Kennel" and open the door.

If not, I just let Zeus' greeting continue until Zeus sees the visitor depart. Then Zeus gets lots of praise and a treat.
