Many people bring me their dog to solve dog behaviour problems, some dog behaviour problems are simply just naughty (but annoying) behaviours that the dog is running often for its own self satisfaction or amusement. It is also common that the dog totally disregards the owners best attempts to stop these behaviours…
This is of great interest to many of our dogs who will take great interest and enjoyment in barking at these little creatures that are making the most noise they do all year round. Of course the barking isn’t as welcome as our dogs think it may be and can bring with it sleepy dog owners, complaining neighbours, council letters and in some cases poisoned dogs.
