Do you mean, Mr.MacLeod, that you think any dog can be trained? I do not agree as I think, like humans certain areas of the brain do not respond. Lap dogs are a particular area that I would class as non trainable. I might add, this is purely my own thoughts.

Simple training - the same as you would for recall. The issue is 99% the owner not being patient and wanting an immediate fix.

Water spray on jet could work but failing that a citronella spray collar works fast a few days later you can usually then either just show them the collar or put a ordinary collar on that's the same colour if there close together when barking try one collar & put it on the outgoing dog not the nervous one as she's proberly the leader the cheap ones are not worth buying but it's a thing you can always resell again

I have a 1 year old border collie he is like hudini I bought a car Barnes for seat belt but he knows how to undo it so I bought the dog guard for the boot left dog in the car outside school when I picked up my grandson got back to the car to find the dog had got through the bars. He barks constantly when left alone. I'm running out of ideas.

Arrh bless you. Sounds perfect little yorkie but oh dear wsh I could help. My little boy is fine until another dog comes on the scene. Not all the time but occasionally he will be so aggressive and attack a bigger dog. I think they all have their little idiosyncrasies. Bertie does not like the car and will sit all the time he will never lay down.
I wish you well.

I have a Yorkshire terrier and he is lovely, quite well behaved follows me around ,lets me know when anyone is coming to my door, he does get excited when anyone first comes in but soon calms down ,in fact a perfect little dog ,until you put him in a car ,then he yells all the time, that it makes your ears hurt, I have tried him on the back seat with me beside him ,in his cage in the boot , but makes no difference, I've tried calming biscuits and calming sprays, going to the vets is murder for me ,can anyone help.

Hi my friend tried the citronella anti bark collar, she had really good results, her dog only wore it for a short time and stopped the barking, now she only shows him the collar and he knows so won't bark! Worth a try! Can't remember the name, I know they sell them on here or ebay! Hope it helps! Xxx

I have read all the interesting posts - my problem is a springer who barks at night whilst I am trying to sleep. He is ok once I am up and about. The more he barks, the less sleep I get and it is not good. I do agree however it is all my fault and not the dog's. Over the last few years I have moved his bed from the kitchen to the living room, allowed him upstairs and even into my room at night. He now dominates my life, whereas it should be the other way around. I have no excuse except I wanted him with me all the time. Now it is me that can't cope with all the freedom and range I have given him. How do I un-learn him? I will certainly try the spray/reward, even in the middle of the night, and perhaps the crate; I will try anything to get my life back. I cannot function without sleep!! Any other suggestions gratefully received.

Yes Sandy I agree. Holly was the same. Could not trust her at night at all so we had to put a child gate up at the kitchen and he pawed most of the night and left us parcels in the morning.
Bertie is the opposite. Really good toilet wise but I thought it was because he was a boy he was aggressive; we had him "done" hoping that the testosterone was lower and he would become more amenable - NO, not yet anyway. Bertie likes us both to be here with him if my husband goes away he sits looking out the window for periods of a time waiting for him. We love him to bits and after all I suppose you cannot have the perfect dog eh?

Linz I'm the same.... my little yorkie is a vindictive wee thing... if she's not on your lap she's not happy. I've two dogs, the other is a westie and no issues with her toilet habits at all. My yorkie would bark at her own shadow and I sometimes feel my yorkie leaves her little parcels outta spite!

Dear Molmai. Again Amazon have sent me an email re message boards. I have not ever written on one so goodness knows why I got your email. I am flabbergasted.

Never mind I hope the person you are replying to got your answer. Funnily enough I have a lovely little Yorkie named Bertie. He barks, sometimes at nothing but I would not change him for the world. By dog barking standards he is pretty good he just does dislike birds so runs around barking and trying to get at them.
I agree with all you have said Molmai as I have had a persistent barker in a Yorkie before and she was terrible. I had to put her on the lead to put her in the garden at the end as she was dreadful off the lead and I did worry about the neighbours. It all worked out in the end. I never got her to stop barking. she was also a dirty little got whereas Bertie isn't. Holly never liked being left on her own at night and you paid for it in the morning. Like you I have followed all the books, all the tips on stopping her doing her toilet in the house, to no avail.

As I said I hope that the person your reply was intended for has got it as well as me.

Best Wishes

Sorry have to disagree!

1. My dogs, unfortunately, because of our rural isolated location, means it is impossible to remove the stimulants, as you put it, out of their very acute hearing. Sight manageable. Dogs have exceptional hearing unfortunately!! So EVEN when they can't SEE the thing that is bugging them, they can still hear it. (They could be two floors up, or at the opposite end of the house and, trust me they still hear it).
2. My dogs have had enormous input, stimulation and exercise wise, (and to suggest that dogs who bark must not have had that, is wholly inaccurate and is more than a tad patronizing to the point of arrogance). Unfortunately - and I have had many years of succesfully 'training' dogs of various breeds, who have been highly responsive to training - they do not respond at all, to the reward system. Bore of treats extremely quickly. Both are Yorkies, sisters from the same litter, whilst different in looks, character and temperament, they are not interested AT ALL in treats (other than literally the first one) from being little pups. MOST training programmes rely on the reward/treat system (YES I know... I got 2 odd little doggies, as lovable as they are:-) ).
3 My dogs had, the full investment, time, plenty of long and varied walks, plenty of games. Crate and bed initially, (for 2 or 3 years we used the crate, as a safe environment, until they rejected it - and it did not make one iota of difference to their barking.)from pups, and although - they are 12yrs, almost now. The barking problem persists.
We have consulted vets, behaviourists et al. ((Who were totally in agreement that all of the anti-barking collars, no matter type - should never be used, on th grounds of cruelty - nature of a dog to bark, and could cause increased aggressiveness!) Without success. 12 years of a lot of hard work 'let alone a bit' did not work for us, and the many professionals involved, - I realise too that often the 'owner' gets blamed, but there are exceptions to every rule! My dogs are Yorkshire Terriers, who had a very difficult birth experience, apparently 'Mum and litter' nearly perished, hence maybe we were just unlucky. However we still get love and enjoyment out of them, and we love them hugely in return. I am glad the normal methods worked for you - must be nice, green eyed monster here

I had one of those collars that emit a n high pitch noise when the dog barks all that did was make my male Staffie a nervous wreck! I would rather they bark than be scared to move in fear of the noise!! I used a water bottle now they only have to see it and they shut up

Continual barking: You could try the feromone plug ins, which I could not, as I found myself allergic. Radio and music may distract, but you will need the listener as advised in this thread.

Like I said,the dogs' are OK.It's the owner

In reply to an earlier post on 16 Nov 2012 16:01:26 GMT
Yeah,you're right. So very often it isn't the dog,it's the owner
