I have a dog that will not stop barking. this dog barks all day and night inside or out. she even barks if you hold her mouth shut. she had burns on her neck from the collar that emits a shock. she barks at nothing and everything. I have no problem is she barks at someone strange at the door or noises not familiar to her but she will bark if the air conditioner kicks on or the tv or a door in the house is opened or closed. if we move she jumps and barks. it like she cant stop no matter what does anyone know how to train her to stop excessive barking
I feel your pain! My Chow has recently decided to bark all night for no reason, but only when I put him in his crate. He's been crate trained since I brought him home at 7 weeks, but now that he's a year old apparently he thinks it's a problem. I've been putting him outside at night for a few hours, that seems to help. I talked to my vet yesterday, he recommended more exercise. (My Chows have generally been lazy), but I walked him around at a quick pace for about 15 minutes, and it helped a little. Someone at work is loaning me a bark collar that sprays them just in front of thier nose with a clicker. I decided anthing is worth a shot. I'll let you know how it goes, I'm trying it tonight. BTW, what kind of dog do you have?
