Hi there, I have a 2 year old male Jack Russell which is in most ways a well behaved, lovely family pet! One of his only bad habits is his incessant barking at times in our back garden. He has open access to the garden through a cat flap which he & both our cats use. As soon as he hears either a noise in our neighbours garden or in the street on our other boundary it sets him off. We can easily nip the problem in the bud at home given as soon as he's set off barking we only have to open back door and issue stern command of 'come' or 'in' and he stops almost immediately and returns to the house as instructed. The issue we have is trying to control it when we are not in! We are a working family out for anything upto 6hrs a day. Quite often as we leave the house he will go straight in the garden & start barking. My neighbour has mentioned it twice now stating he's constantly on the go when we are out. He's admitted he's not a dog lover & can't help think he's over exaggerating a little as everytime we return to the house he's always cosy indoors happily chilled but then I would hate our neighbour taking it further legally & therefore need guidance on the best way to tackle it!! Would appreciate any advice, our neighbour has even gone to the trouble of printing off different products/anti barking devices such as spray collar & ultrasonic stopper.
