So Woody has taken a liking to his own voice!
He has started to bark at strangers/dogs when I take him out on walks. I was hoping it'd be something he'd grow out. He has been doing this pretty consistently for the past month.
Even when I take him to his puppy class, he would bark (mostly at other pups, larger pups). And when the other dog owners pet him, he would be very shy, and usually backs off.
He's a fairly small poo. Around 10lbs at 4 months. And I've heard that small pups are just more timid, and barks out of fear.
Right now, whenever he barks at strangers/dogs, I walk in front of him and stand between him and the stranger/dog, and tell him "no!" Haven't had much luck. Usually stops when we have walked away from the stranger/dog.
Do you guys have any tips on how I would correct his behaviour?
