Why your dog barks when someone rings the doorbell
Your dog shares your living space with you and you couldn’t be happier about this. How can you make sure you are able to understand what’s going through her head when she’s barking?
Your pet is likely trying to get your attention, or possibly the attention of someone else, when she barks. This is why she typically will keep barking until you focus on her or what she is trying to communicate to you. When someone rings the doorbell, your pet is trying to let you know that there is someone there. This may mean she is excited to see who it is or that she is nervous about the sudden noise. She may also be trying to tell the individual on the other side of the door to take a hike, so be mindful of her other behaviors to determine if this is the case.
