Sonny will bark at things on the TV and will now also bark at things he sees outside. For some reason he also barks when Dad puts the recliner bit of his chair in (not sure think he associates it with someone coming to the door as Dad gets up :confused5. I am going to try and tackle Sonny's barking this long weekend so I have 4 days to concentrate on him and then continue training in the evenings when back at work. I am not sure how to go about teaching him the quiet command though. I know it is advised to teach speak/bark first but not sure how to get him to bark on que in order to then teach him quiet so any advice on this would be appreciated. I usually just use treats for training as do not think that I mastered the clicker very well - all Sonny learned was when it clicked he got a treat so his behaviour would get worse as he would sit and bark at the clicker to try and get me to click it :nono: or he would do something bad as he know he would get a treat for behaving after it (tries this one without a clicker as well). I had to give him two time outs yesterday (shut him in the hall for about 5 minutes) because off his barking at something outside - think the cats around the corner have caught on as well and walk on our path past the window to set him off so I really could do with him mastering the quiet command.
