Bark Yap Bark Yap!!!
Grrrrrrr. The dogs bark at EVERYTHING! Penny does it frequently, but Chaquita is the worst.
They bark at:
If I set my cup down and it sounds like a "knock"
Ok, that last one was a joke. But seriously...it's bad! I've tried to teach the 'quiet' command by sitting calmly with Chaquita and telling her 'quiet' and praising her when she is, but then she's off again! I try yelling 'no!', but they keep going. I've tried clapping hard and slamming my hand on the table, but...nope. They may stop for a little bit (3-5 sec) or bark more quietly, but they don't shutup!
The only thing that partially works with Chaquita is staring her down in the eye while saying 'no' very calmly. But as soon as I look away, she starts growling and that leads to barking.
Even worse - when one starts, the other one starts!!
It's like they are in another world when they are barking! They hear nothing else. It's like when Jim watches TV. What can I do?
(I swear my next dog is gonna be a cat! )
