Rufus goes nuts!!! He has a really ferocious sounding bark and launches himself at the door. If the visitor isn't someone who knows him, they always take a step back towards the gate when they hear me opening the door incase this crazy dog comes and savages them. He's not aggressive though and will let people in when I invite them in, no problems, and he's happy to have visitors. He's very much a guard dog whether we like it or not, but is a big softy inside :)

This is his 1st Halloween as a big boy (he was only a little pup last year). I imagine I wont have to open the door to anyone. He'll just launch himself at the door like some rabid snarling warewolf and the kids will run off screaming :D

(He's actually just spotted some up the street and is already going nuts! :rolleyes: )

Oscar will bark a few times and run to the door Sam won't bark but will follow Oscar to the door. Hopefully we won't have any trick or treaters tonight though cause the weather is awful :)

Alice couldn't care less but Dibley will bark if he can be bothered to. He has been a tad lazy today because he hates rain so he has been sulking about not wanting to go out for a decent walk because its been raining most of the day. :rolleyes:

Cooper will go absolutely crazy barking - for a young pup he's got a really deep bark!!

We've put a sign on the door saying no trick or treaters cos I can't be doing with him woofing all night!

Probably have abit of a bark but not go really mental. My house opens onto the street so they are used to people walking past and standing outside.

Rio will bark LOUD :rolleyes:

We've only had one group so far and I'm already dreading the rest. I love trick or treaters but I've no sweets this year so just have to sit through the constant knocking and woofing.

Three mad barkers here :rolleyes: I'm being a meany and not even getting up (to be honest I'm in agony after injections in my back so I'm trying to lie still) we've had three knocks so far but it's just started raining heavily so I'm hoping there won't be many more. One of the downfalls of living in a terraced house, it's the easiest street to walk up and down knocking :rolleyes:

Kilo sounds as if he will eat whoever is there if they dare step foot over the threshold if he is allowed to. I have the kitchen door shut tonight and baby gate at the dining room entrance so he's confined to the lounge and dining room. That way he barks a few times then settles down.

If I am expecting someone, they do not bark. Obviously if someone comes to the door unexpected I act differently (I do not like answering the door [or fone for that matter] if I don't know who it is), then they will bark quite a bit.

It depends what they're doing at the time.

If they're asleep or the knocking is unexpected (i.e. they haven't heard anyone coming) then the younger two will have a few really good barks. On very rare occasions the eldest might join in.

We have steps up to our door so it's quite rare for someone to come and knock on the door without the dogs hearing them coming first. They're having no problem with the kids out and about tonight as they're shrieking on their way down the road :rolleyes:

It depends on how we react as well, if we're surprised they're more likely to bark.

We've only had one lot knock and only the whippet had a couple of barks, he has a very good bark for such an insubstantial looking dog!!

From the sound of it though some of our neighbours' dogs aren't taking the trick or treating quite so well. There's a constant chorus of distant barking at the moment.
