I would say...your dog reacts to a fimilar location. Your dog sees your office as a safe, comforting place. your dog is reacting because they are scared/feel threatend. Try to calm them...don't scream or yell.

i don't know if you yell at them when they bark but if you do try telling them in a soft tone of voice. it maybe the reaction they are looking for. good luck

You might also try a stun collar set on very low. It is used to train dogs not to bark. Not knowing the kind of evironment your work is, it could be the area. If it is dark and opened its their way of letting you know someone is there. Also you could try a rolled up newspaper or touching them and saying quiet in a normal voice. Yelling or screaming doesn't work, then they think you are scared and they will act out more. Also try snapping your fingers and saying shush. You might also try a trainer. Good Luck
