i cant honestly say for sure.. im not vet or anything.. but i know that dogs hear different frequencies than we do and can hear things we cant, ... so you might not hear anything at all and your dog could be.. that or he could be smelling something close by or something.. could be anything like someone just walking by... animals running in the yard or something, im not really sure of a way to help with that either u could try putting a muzzle on or something when he starts doing it.. i cant think of any other suggestions really
I'm really not sure why your corgi is barking a lot. What I've heard is that some breeds bark more than others. I have a 22 week old female chocolate lab puppy. She sometimes barks for what appears to be no reason at all. Maybe it's a puppy thing! Perhaps, another corgi owner can better answer your question.
could it be that your pup is barking cause he wants you to take him out and play with him and give him treats? does he do it only when you put him away or is it like all the time, no matter what? if he's doing it for attention - i've heard that you are supposed to ignore him until he gets used to entertaining himself. i feel for ya, i would go mad if my dogs barked constantly. puppies are alot more work, but with some patience on your part i think he'll come out of it :) good luck!
ow, sounds like the beagle we got my son, whe she came here and for the first year she barking (more of that hound beying) if she was sad, happy, bored, playing, wanting to play, wanting to stop playing, wanting out, wanting in, wanting petted, wanted to lie down, if her mouth was full with a toy....she was barking! She a year and a half now, and it has slowed down soooo much, maybe just time?
With our 9 month old Boston we tried everything from scolding, time in the "naughty room" and ignoring. The only thing that has now worked somewhat is a squirt bottle. I think his previous owner house trained him using that and now the very sight of the bottle usually stops him. If not he gets a squirt and once he's stopped barking I'll praise him for being quiet. Good Luck!
Like a kid crying if you give your dog what it wants when he barks, he will continue to do it. The spray bottle sounds good. I've seen the trainers at the Petsmart I go to use bitter apple to spray at the dog when it barks while sitting in its crate. My second dog is more barky than my first but nothing like you describe. Good luck. I think it is going to take time and consistency for this problem.
