I know how you all feel.
I have a dog that barks. She is by no means an outside dog. She... barks inside. I can't control her when I'm not home, but when I am I get sooo upset. We can't even have the front door open. She barks at birds... and I mean really FLIPS out at them.
Not just birds though, trees, grass, leaves moving, the wind, moths, people walking, people talking, cars driving by. But do you think she'd bark at one that would pull in. NOOOOO WAAY. When I'm home alone and Ken comes home she doesn't even more... the garage door opens he opens the door. NOTHING. I thought the point of a watch dog was supposed to alert me when someone comes in the house! Not the neighboorhood!
She makes me so mad :hitself: When she is barking at everything and nothing at the same time, I'll tell her NO and she won't even listen until the point where I'm actually YELLING at her, she stops for a minute and then always always always... WOOF. Like she gets the last word. UGH!!!
I honestly don't know how to control it. She definitely knows we don't want it, or like it.
Now I've noticed that when we let her out to pee or poo she runs out and barks. Woof Woof. She knows we don't like it so she does it a few times as to not get yelled at.
We've really tried everything though, collars.... scolding...... kennel...... inside..... I don't know how to control it. It has been getting worse since the weather has warmed. Luckily we don't live too close to people but it annoyes me so much.
On behalf of the barking pet owners I apologize. I know its
maddening. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be glad to listen!!!!!!
