My dog barks and goes nuts every time his daddy comes in the door. I mean it is almost like he is telling him off for being gone so long, or he is welcoming him home. lol The tail is a wagging, he is jumping up and down, and just a barking. He is so cute when he does it. But it does get on the nerves as he doesn't know when to stop So does your dog go nuts when you get home?

My baby is in the same room and lays right by my feet, so it is difficult to get up! He does follow me to the bathroom and peeks in to make sure I am ok. This all started after I had my accident in 2003. He was my protector. He would lay outside on the patio where we use to live and he would get up run inside, come to me sniff, get a head rub and a good boy and then go back satisfied that I was OK. He has not gotten out of that. Always by me. Daddy comes in and he goes wild, but he comes right back to me. Thanks for the replies and have a great day!

My dog does LOL and it drives me crazy with that yapping every time you turn around. He will watch us go out to the mailbox and come right back and he barks like he doesn't know who we are. We do not have to be away for long at all. He still does it. My dog gets on my nerves also. He barks when he hears the school bus pull up or go by. He doesn't even have to see it. He don't know when to shut up either and that is what gets on my nerves the worst too.

LOL. He acts like we are strangers to him alot of times. We can walk outside the door for five seconds and go out on the deck and he sees us. As soon as we step towrds the door, he is watching out of the corner of his eye and starts that yapping. I think I am going to eventually get him a bark collar and take away his M&M's LOL.

It's not that he thinks you are a stranger, he is fussing that he wasn't included to go with you. Mine is the same way. I go get the mail and when I come back, the tail is wagging and he is a barking and doesn't want to move until he is finished telling me what he thinks of that! Too cute let me tell ya Have a great day!

Yes! In fact, it drives me mad. She usually listens to me when I tell her to stop though. On the other hand, she goes even more nuts when my boyfriend comes home. She acts like she hasn't seen him in months! He can't even sit down without having her sit right in his lap. That's rough too, because she's a 45lb. pit bull and it's frusterating when you have a dog that size wiggling it's way into your lap. It's so funny though, but gets annoying very quickly, because it sometimes takes a good 20 minutes to calm her down and get her to leave him alone. He doesn't really mind though, because that's his 'baby', and he loves to see her happy. She usually doesn't bark when he comes in the door though, the only time she barks is when we leave.

Now your dog sounds like mine. lol Mine is chow/lab mixed. Doesn't jump in his lap, but jumps all over the place. Hubby can't walk once he is in the door. It's cute, but annoying at the same time. But what can one do? He calms down after hubby pets him and calms him down. Have a great day!

I have a chow/lab mix as well and he goes nuts at the door whenever either of us pulls up in the driveway. He does this strange yelping, barking noise until you come in the door. Once you walk in, he circles you until you acknowledge him and then he runs to the back door to be let out. He doesn't even have to go to the bathroom, he's just created some pattern where someone comes home and he has to go out the back door right afterwards. The only time he's totally out of control though is when his Grandma and Grandpa show up. Boy does he carry on then... circling and yelping and trying to hog all the attention. He's so spoiled.

My dog absolutely loves my mum. She sits at the window and watches for her coming home. When she gets back from work she always barks (which was cute to begin with but now it's just really annoying). She wags her tail and knocks over all the ornaments and she puts her big wet nose up against the windows. When mum gets in its just a mess. Terry

Oh yes, our two used to bark a lot, one of them did it so much so that the neighbours complained! He was only a puppy and didn't like being left alone. Well we tried everything and were getting paranoid. In the end I contacted a specialist and he told us what to do, as this barking is a form of anxiety. We did what he told us - when you are in the house, call them over then completely ignore them for a couple of minutes. Let them know that you are the boss and that if you are going to leave them you will come back. If they come up to you, ignore them or if they bark, ignore them. Gosh it was hard but it worked! Then to give him some company we got another rescue dog. Oh hum, had to start the process all over again. We thought he would teach the new dog how to behave, oh no, they just banded together and started a riot of barking. The loves! They got better after some ignoring treatment. But you can't help but love them and give them cuddles. As they were huskies they were big dogs so we didn't go for the jumping up routine but sometimes they'd catch you out, generally when you got your best clothes on!

My dog does something like that...like if i have been gone all day and I walk in the door with a bag or something like that he will just start going crazy and jumping all around and all of that kind of stuff...and then he will start trying to go through the bags that I brought it to see if you have anything for him and if you don't then he will go whine for awhile...but hten after you sit down or something like that he will jump up in your lap and let you pet him and stuff like that and show you that he really missed you while you were gone...of course my dog is really spoiled...

My husband has got our puppy trained to not jump all over him when he walks through the door, but when I come in, he is all over me! I don't understand it...I do and say the same things to him, but he listens and respects my husband a lot more than me...

It's all in the tone. Your husband has more of a stern voice and your puppy knows to listen. I know becasue I had the same problem. lol Good Luck with training her/him. Have a great day and thanks for the reply.

When I first got my dog he used to run and jump on me every time I came home but as time went on the idea of my return home obviously didn't excite him anymore because he was used to it. Now I've moved out, whenever I go back home he goes absolutely ballistic because he doesn't see me so much anymore.

Actually, my dog will bark at anyone who comes to the door except for me and my boyfriend. He knows the sounds of our cars and will pop his head up to look out the window in the front door when we come up the walk. When we first had him, he would bark and try to jump up when we came in the door because he was so excited to see us. We trained him out of that by refusing to pet or look as him until he calmed down and followed the command to "sit," then we would pet him. Now, he's very good about not jumping on anyone, he will stand there and let us put our bags down, then we greet him and pet him for being so patient. If he is really excited, he will get up on his back legs and wave his front paws in the air, but not actually touch anyone. It's very cute.

When my husband and I come in the door we're greeted by lots of enthusiastic tail wagging. I love their enthusiasm! If we could all be as enthusiastic and appreciative as dogs the world would be a better place. :-)

See my dog never bark when I or any close one of my family come to my house. If there is anything strange,in any person, the dog normally observe him for few days. After His observation, the person who He observed come to home definitely he will start barking. You must realize that the dog fully observed the person. He understood that, may be in behavior, the person is strange. A faithful Dog never bark to his Masters. Dog is not an ordinary animal. DOG IS VERY WISE AND FAITHFUL. Like DOG we cannot find any domestic animal in the world.

Yes!!! My dogs ger very much excited when I come home or my boyfriend arrives. Just the sound of the car approaching home we can already hear them barking. They aren't barkers normally but when we went out jeeez they go crazy really imagine 5 adult chows jumping all over you. They do stop when you gave them each kisses and a short ear rub.
