Mine ( 2) doesn't bark if I'm there, he'll just sneak up behind you and , as Blue Healers are called that, ( mine aren't Healers) , give the a Blue Healer. I, as an owner, try to be very alert to this situation, and tell others to be wary. Hear at home....he's doing his job....tracks are close. If he knows you, your fine.
