We have a male Chi and his name is Carlos. Our boy is 8 months old and barks constantly!! Mostsly he only barks while he's inside the house and has started to bark in the middle of the night. We're looking for some other options other than the shock collar. If anyone has any advice, we would appreciate it tremendously. I've heard wonderful things about this site and had to give it a try.

barking

I have heard some people use a spray bottle or a can of pennies to startle the dog every time he starts to bark and then he will eventually realize he gets sprayed or here the loud obnoxious noise when ever he barks. I guess it is worth a try :wave:

The can of pennies worked well with Cooper. Just shake it at them and say Quiet!. Cooper was a maniac barker at 8 months. Now he's a year old and if he's barking just to be bad, he will stop if we tell him to. But if he sees another dog or animal he doesn't like, or a stranger in our yard, he barks and there is nothing I can do to stop him. :roll:
I'd say just don't give up or give in to his barking. Keep on him all the time telling him to be quiet. Good Luck :wink: :wave:

Look at this thread: http://www.chihuahua-people.com/viewtopic.php?t=11253. I posted an article from the Dumb Friend's League on barking and how to control it.

You might also want to put the Dumb Friend's League website in your favorites ... They are a rescue organization and they have loads of info on training dogs and all kinds of situations, including housebreaking, biting, crate training, etc. The addy is: http://www.ddfl.org/tips.htm
