Re: need lots o' help
Hi frankenfish, welcome to the board!
First of all, do you practice NILIF? (nothing in life is free) if you don't google it, you get a lot of great info on it. Also, how much exercise and training do you do with the dog?
Basically what I would try to do is have someone come up to the door. Have them knock or ring the doorbell. If he barks Tell him quiet (If he knows it, if he doesn't teach him that first, and do this with treats) reward him when he gets quiet. Make him sit, then stay. Open the door. If the dog goes berserk and breaks the stay, shut the door. Ultimately the dog wants the door to come open right? So, this is basically teaching him how to behave when the door opens. Put him back in the sit stay. Mark the behavior and reward. Keep repeating this until the dog can sit calmly as the person walks in.
