Katie has a problem with barking, tried everything I could think of so went back to basics for about the 20th time, I've found my telling the kids off voice works best. She's gotten better with the neighbours and only has a quick 'woof' to let them know she's seen them. She was told 'quiet' yesterday when someone she'd never seen was in their garden and supprisingly she didn't bark again after that. Hopefully she's getting better with people now and will stop barking quickly. Just barking at the new dog they're getting is going to be the biggest problem as I hate barking dogs. Although I wish they'd make up their mind what they're going to get (incase I have to buy high fence panels to stop it jumping over (Katie doesn't know how to jump over things, luckily enough) into the garden when the kids are playing out. So far they've talked about getting an american bull, but think that ones been binned, now it's a Dogue De Bordeaux Mastiff, I don't know anything about them apart from it's the dog in Turner and Hooch, lol. My fence is about 4' 6" high between us, I'm probably going to have to put something on my side of the fence to stop a toddler sticking it's fingers through the fencing, so any cheapish suggestions as I've not got a lot of money to spend on extras after the bills have been paid. It's going to have it's kennel and run next to my fence so if anyone knows anything about this breed can they let me know, things like how high they jump, temprement etc I'd be really greatful.
