Try walking all the way out of the gate to the left and walking back there again.  It won't just reset if you go to the front of the house.

Actually, it should.
Hero, have you actually talked to Ceres (or the Fates; I forget who tells you) to find out that you need to get the crystal? You won't be able to get into the house until you do.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

I found that, even when I had spoken about the crystal (I believe it's the Fates), the dog wouldn't necessarily shut up, and that going all the way out of the garden would stop the dog barking.

Usually it doesn't on the first try for me, but I never had to go all the way out of the garden to stop it; just changing screens to the front of the house and going back about three or four times (sometimes a few more) did it. Maybe it's an uncommon bug.

Thanks, Weldon!

And it could just be an uncommon bug.  I would have to back and forth between front and back of the house a huge amount of times, and it still wouldn't work, whereas if I went out the gate and back, it usually "reset" it.

Oh yeah, good suggestion.  Go talk to Doctor Cadaver, if you haven't already!

Yeah, I never had good luck with that stupid dog.  He was always barking.  If you've done everything and been told to get the crystal, then just keep walking back and forth from the front and back of the house until he's quiet.  It took me forever too.  I hate those random things.  If he just won't stay quiet, maybe just leave the swamp, go back to Etheria, make sure you've picked up everything there, then go back down and see if that resets everything.

Unless you're referring to the fact that the dog keeps killing you once you're inside the house, in which case you'll need to find a way to get on his good side.  Keep in mind that doggies like treats.

I found that if I actually go in and get caught once, a redo would usually reset the game as well.

It might depend on the version of KQ7. The ambrosia puzzle might be in place, I'm thinking.

Remember the old "edge of the screen trick" you used to employ when being chased by a wizard/witch/ogre/troll etc. in adventure games? :P According to the KQVII hintbook, you have to leave the screen and return until it stops barking. I know how irritating this is and it may sometimes take many, many tries. :P

I walked back and forth endlessly and the dog never disappeared. After a while I left the screen (so I was at the front of the house) and then walked into the werewolf woods, and only *then* came back. It took a good few tries before the dog was gone. I have no idea if going into the woods each time helped, of course :-\

I never had to do that.....

By the way, you can start a YouTube clip at a certain point by adding timestamps to the URL. If you add "&t=5m35s" (without the quotes), for example, the clip will start at the 5 minute and 35 second mark.

I always walked back to the front of the house, then back and forth a few times to get the dog to stop.
