    Before we moved, she had a real problem barking at 'strange stuff' and especially odd noises, or people.
    She is much better now, but she will still bark at things when she is in the garden, or if someone walks past the window and she sees them.
    She does not bark at our neighbours in there gardens anymore, but will bark at people walking past the alleyway etc, or if she gets a fright.

    Every time she barks I say 'Dixie, quiet!' and if she does not stop she gets sent to her bed.

    She just got a fright and barked at something, but before I could tell her off, she ran into her bed, sat down and composed herself, then went back out again :D Lol I thought it was an ongoing battle, I didn't really think we were getting anywhere, I was getting used to the fact she will always be slightly nervy. But she has just proved me wrong :D
