Have a rescue dog. He barks at strangers, shakes and has snapped at visitors. He is not aggressive and is a small dog. He seems to be a terrier, min pin, chihuahua mix. Not really sure of breed.

This behavior is common among small dogs. They can be very territorial and protective of their environment and their owners. A firm “NO”, then ignoring his behavior is a good start. He is looking for reinforcement from you to acknowledge his behavior. There are bark collars that use high pitched sounds to distract the dog from barking which may help. We do NOT advocate shock collars.
