training dog when company rings door bell
we all know how adorable our dogs are,i am trying to teach my dog to stay quietly when he heard the door bell ring. right now he runs to the door, barks, i pick him up so he doesn't run out the door when i open it, sometimes i can keep him at a stay on the top stair, but as soon as company enters, he goes crazy, barking happy to see everyone. i have told my friends, don't look at him, talk to him just ignore him until he calms down then you can give him as much loving as you want. well, they don't listen. so, i thought about putting him in the kitchen and keeping him there until he calms down after someone rings the door bell. i'd love suggestions, i love my friends but they have been sabotaging my training efforts.
