Sounds like Voodoo acts more like a perimeter dog, ie, anyone that steps inside the perimeter gets charged. I do not know if he will bite or not but that is besides the point. Also a point to note is that you can not control him verbally. So 2 things come to mind as a potential solution,

1, Kennel him when expecting company
2, Teach him the place command or a firm OB position like a down. Someone knocks, you send him to his place or down him, then open door (then release Voodoo after greeting the visitor).

Needless to say #2 relies on verbal OB as long as the dog does not break the command before you verbally release him. Key is him NOT breaking the command before you release, gotta watch out for that like a hawk and act firm and quick. You can start by teaching him the down and over time add distraction and duration. Once you get him over 10 minutes in duration and over someone knocking and entering as distraction, you are home. Until then, kennel him.
