Why does my aussie bark at only my brothers friend whenever he comes over..? He barked non-stop at him and gave off a fishy smell. The friend tried to make friends with the pup but nothing worked. Also, when any family memebers come over, he gets really excited and jumps on them. It's embarrasing...especially the barking..
