Default Barking problems

This has probably been discussed before but I couldn't find it. Isis is 6 months old and she's been barking outside when we let her out. Sometimes she's barking at another dog she hears, sometimes it's at the big great Danes next door (they don't make a sound, they just look at her from the neighbors back deck). And sometimes she seems to be barking at nothing. She doesn't stop when we tell her "no barking". She will sometimes come inside when we call her but not always.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop this behavior??

with children they here the last thing said and with experience i have found raising dogs and children very simular so
try teaching her a command like 'quiet' treating her/giving her a game which ever she prefers when she goes quiet on command, it may take a while but once the first few times of responding with the wanted behaviour it should be easier.

BUT be careful she may start barking so you tell her quiet to get a treat their clever like that but as she gets the hang of it treats can be substuted for fus every other time then more fuss than treats etc.

hope this helps.

Thanks we'll give that a try. She is super clever, our instructor at puppy class told us that she's too clever for her own good and anytime she sees an opportunity to take advantage of us, she'll take it...and she has

We'll try the quiet command though

Buy an antibark collar. They can be found in Petsmart cheap. Use the lowest setting and do not use it permanently, only for some time periods, when you want your dog be silent. I used it on one of my dogs successfully. Others do not bark much.

this is a very old thread and there is a controversy about shock collars on this fourm. i don't want to be mean, but i wouldn't mention that kind of stuff on this particular fourm.

This is OK with me, but some dogs end in dog shelters, if they bark too much with no reason.

You can how ever buy a device which omits a high pitched noise (humans can't hear it though) it's not loud though so won't do any damage to the dogs hearing you plug it in and when the dog barks it sends the dogs bark to the device which then omits the high frequency noise this noise will automaticaly switch off when the device is not recieving a signal (bark) from the dog. Eventually the dog will realise to stop the high frequency noise from being started It will bark less and less So it might be worth trying that!

I hate all electronic devices of any kind used for correction dog's behavior. However, in our overcrowded society many good dogs become totally out of place, because of their innate behavior traits. A jelly dog breed would be just right.

Ruby, members are free to post their opinions on whatever topic they wish to reply to. The fact that a topic is controversial simply means that there are differing opinions among members, which is the purpose of a forum--to exchange ideas, information, and provide opportunities to learn. If a post is inappropriate for whatever reason, the staff will evaluate and take care of it. Please let us do our job.
