I wonder if anyone can help. It's a long story lol! About 3 years ago we adopted a border collie from someone. He was half starved & riddled with everything going. He was scared of his own shadow. We nurtured him back to a healthy dog with tender loving care & alot of patience. He is still very funny with his eating & still abit jumpy. The problem is his barking. If anyone comes within 5 doors away, he barks & runs into the corner of the room. But he continuously barks & barks even when we have told him to be quiet. He just doesn't listen to us at all. When he does eventually quietens down he still grumbles & argues under his breath. He is a great dog apart from this.
