I just rescued her from a lady who does this for a living! She is a wonderful dog in every other way.. I know everyone is probaly wondering if I am crazy for wanting her to bark. They do have the rep for being a yappy little dog. But I got ours so I could feel safer in my home. See I am a recient rape victim (I don't dwell on that to often) and our new home was broken into by the same man. I Just started on line school and I wanted a little dog to alert me when some one was at the house, She never dose.. She has barked but only once until a couple seconds ago when I heard someone in my yard just now. Can anyone help please,,,
This is Holly"s Mama. I am proud Owner of a new Mini Schnauzer. She never Barks. Not once. Why? Any answers will be helpful.
I've been through the same thing, I feel your pain.. I'm so sorry for what you have been through.... But just give it some time.. Since my rape I've allways been catiuos to strange men on the street, Luke feels that and especially when it's dark I get the chills and Luke feels my stress and is very protective and will raise his hairline to any strange man wandering to close. She'll feel your nervousness about strange nioses and such as soon as she gets to know you better.. I'll bet you 5$ she'll start barking to warn you when that time comes.. Dogs feel us and they do understand our fears, I know that Luke is protective because he feels my stress and he's a husky they're not really protective kind of dogs.
If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them.
