    DefaultBarking

    Any suggestions to help 'curb' the tendency to bark at every little thing while outside?

    I don't want complaining neighbours.

    Sorry no answers, Sammi thinks she is the neighborhood gate keeper, has to let everyone know she is watching out for them! Annoying as heck, funny thing is unless she is home or in the car she never barks! Friends hear her in the back ground on the phone and asks who that is barking They have never heard her bark when out hiking or at the river! Weird thing is tonight Sammi has been pretty quite- I think because of the whole ear event- and I am surprised to say I miss her barking!

    If they're outside alone, nothing you can do except bring them inside. If you are out with them, redirect and redirect and redirect every time they start.. keep them busy doing other stuff, and they'll look to you instead of boredom-bark.

    Yes, it is when he is outside by himself or with Rowan.

    I worry about neighbours too ! Dylan will rush out barking if he hears one of the neighbour's dogs ( there are several ) and I have to rush out saying "No Bark !"

    It doesn't always work but we are getting there !

    I rush out and tell him " No bark " and it works most of the time so we are getting there but you have to be quick with the command.

    I bring my dogs in when they start barking. Distract them for a little bit then let them back out. We have a 3 strikes you're out (or In I guess) rule. We have a lot of barky dogs in the neighborhood so I try to keep ours down to a minimum. I also find that if you go see what they are barking at...neighbor next door, rabbit on the other side of the fence, big truck on the street...they calm down because they were just trying to let you know that something was there.

    I bring mine in.. tuck and koda aren't interested in staying outside if i'm not out there, anyway.. not for long.. but since my neighbours bedroom window is near where they bark, i have to stop it immediately. They're both nurses and work shift work so i'm never sure when they're sleeping.

    When Bentley barks it is usually people walking down the sidewalk or people walking/driving down our back alley. Then there is the instance when the neighbours are in the backyard, he goes to the fence and starts his 'barking' fit.

    For the most part, I've been inquiring and going out to 'see' what it is he is doing/seeing. Then saying, "NO BARK" if the behaviour is 'totally unwarranted". I then after the second time, if it has been a short distance of time, bring him in.
