    Hi! My dog whenever she go's outside of she hears any voices or sees people she'll just bark and bark. Sometimes she'll glance back at me like she's saying "hey come bark with me" my family getting pretty fed up. And I don't want to disturb our neighbors. What can I do?

    It would be best to go outside with her to pre -empt any barking .

    Go out with her and tell her “enough” when she barks.

    Take her in if she doesn’t.

    Yes. This advice works but you might want to get a longline on your dog unless recall is 100%

    Just attach the line and put you dog out with it trailing. If the barking starts then go out, get the end of the line and bring your dog in.


    Otherwise what tends to happen is the dog gets wise to the fact you only appear to bring the dog in and it will likely start racing round your garden and be very difficult to catch! Then it has discovered a fun game and might even continue barking as it's running round!

    Easily prevented with a line. Or trailing lead. You need a length that's going to enable you to bring your dog in fast.
