I think it would make more sense if you just have your dog go wait in a particular spot, go open the door for whoever is there, and then verbally released them and let them know that it's okay to go greet your guest. I saw that in another dog training video, and that's what the trainer suggested doing.

Apr 10, 2012 - I like when my dogs bark at the door because she is smart she barks once or twice no more than three and then she sniffs under the door to see if stranger or foe. If its someone like the UPS guy she continues to bark but if it's my mom or sis then her tail begins to do a 180 spin lol

Apr 1, 2011 - @peacelovekatie428 Not if they are small and use them sensibly. I never like feeding dogs from food bowls as I would rather use the kibble during training, so the dogs learn to enjoy training and are motivated by it. Of course, if you are using lots of treats but keep meals the same size, it's not the best. Using food in training is the most effective and efficient way to teach new behaviours as well as solve common behaviour 'problems'. Unfortunately, many people are too macho to use food.
