It varies from dog to dog. If somebody my dogs don't know are in their line of sight, they aren't getting inside. They throw a barking fit, very deep barks in fact compared to when they're commanded to bark. Not every dog has this sort of temperament, in fact it's probably a good thing. My brother had a friend over last weekend, and he came downstairs while the dogs were sleeping and they chased him up the stairs. They know the kid, but not his scent so well and it was dark. Like another user above stated, you've only really exposed him to people you want in your house/on your property, you won't really be able to tell unless he is exposed to some sort of threat. I've been reading into protection dog work, and teaching my dogs basic bark and bite commands, so their prey drives seem to have gone up some, contributing to some extra territorial behavior.
