Some tips to help you effectively house train your dog and keep your house secure include

- Help your dog build confidence
Make someone the dog doesn’t know come to your property and make some noise. To help your dog build confidence, the person could knock on a window if the dog is inside the house. The person then needs to make a sound to indicate he/she is frightened and run away. All these will help the dog build confidence.
If your dog does not show any sign it intends to secure its territory or bark when the person runs off, try it again until he starts to show these signs. If it starts to bark at the stranger, you should repeat the process too and whenever you’re home ensure you praise the dog and maybe give it a special treat.
This should be done as many times as possible if the dog doesn’t bark or show any signs that it intends to secure the house.
