Bella, my almost 3 yr old Doxie/Bichon mix barks every time someone comes in the house. The kids know I'm home because she & our other dog run to the front door, but they don't bark.
The problem is when someone, already known to them (kid's friends etc.) comes inside. Bella barks at them then runs over to me and sits right in front of me. I think she is protecting me and maybe asking me to protect her. But the barking is ridiculous-- there is no danger, and I am not acting in any way like there is any threat. Any ideas? TIA
