Managing barking at the Door
With the help of her rescue Aussie, Flash, veterinary behaviorist Karen Overall demonstrates an easy technique for the common problem behavior of barking at the door. While most owners appreciate being alerted to the arrival of visitors, barking becomes a problem when the dog won't stop when asked. The arrival of visitors is often a chaotic, anxiety–provoking event for the dog who anticipates being yelled at or banished. Owners are embarrassed but do not know an effective technique to fix the problem, which often gets worse over time.

Maltese Barking at the Door
Trainer Becky Schultz teaches the owner of a shy Maltese how to fix alarm barking at the door. Callie was a bit under–socialized and shy, and her owner was frustrated with her continual barking and growling when visitors came to the door. The owner's efforts to correct the problem by picking her up and holding her muzzle shut were not successful. She was young and had come from the breeder just a few months earlier. She had no previous training and the owner was happy with everything but this issue.
