Phoebe, my baby Chi is 5 months old and we've had her for 2 weeks.
She has settled in wonderfully, but has found her bark!
We have 2 cats and need to leave the porch door open for them. It's enclosed, so very safe but people walk passed on occasion. When this happens, Phoebe barks. She also barks at friends visiting which I just find rude! She also barks at her other mommy when she gets home from work!
I know a few Chi owners and have to admit I was put of getting one of my own due to their incessant barking. I have read that there are ways to stop the barking, but I'd love to hear from owners and find out what really works.
Every time Phoebe barks, I pop her back in her crate for a time out, but I don't think she's learning from that.....
