Tucker has always had issues barking at noises...knocking noises. That has improved a lot (as has his overall fear of strangers coming over which has been awesome). However he barks at people walking by pretty badly and it takes him a LONG time to calm down. So I was wondering what I should do about it (though this likely won't happen until May since my parents aren't about to do anything that involves them getting up off their butts consistently). I am planning on giving treats when I see the person before he starts barking, basically playing LAT out the window. However what should I do when he does barks? Sometimes I don't see the person before he starts barking and sometimes he's too over threshold and barks despite treats (this mostly happens with the mail man). And just in case anyone was going to recommend it, I do not want to teach him to bark and stop on cue. I never ever want to reward barking so I don't want to teach it.
