most dog breeds bark when someone comes to the door, while all dogs are individuals most are protective of their home front and will bark at what could possibly be an intrusion.
But to more fully answer your question, australian shepherds are herding dogs which, among other things, means that love to bark and run. They are literally bred to run and bark all day at sheep, so they need a lot of exercise. On a high note though, poodles and australian shepherd are very intelligent.
