How I stopped Robin barking

How did I stop Robin barking at the front door?
Lucy gave me the answer - she told me to "put him at the back door!!
A dog's logic!

Seriously though, I have not managed to stop him barking a the front door every time he hears someone approaching, or the door bell rings. He runs at the door like a bull at a gate - barking like crazy... he frightens visitors; he gets so excited! Any helpful suggestions anyone? Or is he now too old to change?

  1. He feels like it's his job to protect you and the rest of the household. He needs to be shown that he doesn't need to protect you in this way. You need to calm him down by being, calm assertive yourself first. I'd suggest watching a few episodes of the Dog Whisperer which you may be able to get on the web.
