I would simply ban him from your bedroom. Is this the only place he goes into territorial mode? You can also practice rewarding Cookie for calm behaviour as people enter the room.

I agree with Marley. Many animals will guard what is very valuable to them. Sometimes that's kibble, sometimes a bone and some dogs will even guard poop or vomit. Raw food is more likely to be much more valuable to an animal.

My dog was raised on kibble and did not become aggressive when we switched her to raw. She is six years old and allows our 4 month old puppy to share from her meal.

As far as general aggression being attributed to a raw diet, that makes no sense to me. My raw-fed dogs lay on their backs for nail trims and have never growled at me over treats or food.

He is precious. I find having a puppy makes me want even more puppies! It's a terrible addiction.

I think both structured and unstructured walks have value. For me and my (slightly) reactive dog, it was very important to be structured in the beginning. For a good year her walks were basically a series of obedience exercises and lots of treat rewards for calm behaviour when people/cyclists/etc. passed us.
Now, I am a lot more relaxed and in fact the majority of our walks are off-leash, but that's because I now have a dog who understands how to behave in her environment.
I agree that the walk is for the dog, not me, so I want it to be fun for her. But she had to earn her freedom. It is a huge pet-peeve of mine that people think because they're in an off-leash area their dog can simply do anything it wants, including jumping on people and harassing other dogs.
For her own safety, I expect Lupi to be close enough to respond to my verbal commands or for me to be able to protect her from larger, ill-mannered dogs that think bullying smaller ones is fun.

With an anxious or excitable dog, sometimes it's the door opening that becomes the trigger for the barking. You can overcome this by having someone repeatedly open and close the door while you calmly praise and treat your dog. Practice it numerous times a day and the excitement will dissipate, since the door opening no longer necessarily means someone is there. You can also distract your dog with a favorite squeaky toy or bone when you see someone coming or when they get up to leave.

My puppy is the same. She loves phone chargers, even when she has lots of toys right beside her. I just put everything up high where she can't reach, but she's small so it's not that hard. I don't know what else to suggest for you, but I feel your pain!
