How do you get a persistently barking dog to stop barking so much?


He bards at everything. A leaf could blow across the driveway and he'd bark at it. When I tell him to knock it off, he stops for a minute then goes right back to it.

    Hadn't considered the breed info. My guy is Red Tick Hound, also called an English Coonhound. I'll have to look that up and see what it says. He does that talking thing too. I admit I find that part amusing.

    That is SO true about the attention span! I'm going to try the bag rattle. That might freak him out enough to stop barking, thanks for telling me that!
