    My Sheltie Kenna loves a good bark as much as the next Sheltie. However she is also very ball motivated. She frequently manages a good bark while holding a tennis ball in her mouth at the same time.

    I've never noticed any of my other dogs doing this but Kenna has it down to a fine art. She can even make a squeaky toy sqeak while barking.

    Does anyone else have a dog that barks with it's mouth full?

    Yep Beau does! With a tennis ball in his mouth. Although any other toy we have been playing with he will 9 times out of 10 drop it! Depends on the situation! BUt a Tennis ball! No way! He has OCD with them.

    I think my girl has an OCD with tennis balls too...if you give her one she will take off the outer layer and just play with the ball underneath. She does this to every single one :eek:ut:

    Yep rings a bell!!

    But only if no-one wil play with him!! It actually stems from being on his own for so long each day and all he had was a ball...............so he will keep it in his mouth and walk around and around and around in circles until someone will throw it :( and when they did get home all they normally did was throw the ball....so he is accustomed to the fact ''tennis ball' means attention/play

    Now he is with me, he only gets his ball during training, on walks, or when we are outside in the garden. He is not at all bothered unless he can see it.......
