I've been meaning to contact you to let you know how Bobby is doing.
I'm so happy with how he has progressed thanks to your visits to us. The new door has been a huge help with the barking and Bobby is a lot more relaxed now he isn't on patrol the whole time. He still barks when people come to the door which is fine but it feels much more manageable thanks to the techniques you suggested. Also the go to bed command has been absolutely brilliant - as has the toy you suggested I bought (stuffed with treats). I'm trying to give this to Bobby before someone comes over to wear him out and distract him and it's working!
I feel much more relaxed when he does bark for attention although this isn't very often and when we ignore him he soon stops. You really have been a huge support and now that I am calmer about things Bobby definitely is - obviously we still have our moments but I wouldn't change his personality!!
