As many of you know I bought our lovely pup Ted home just over a week ago.
As many of you know Betty has the kind of bark that can shatter glass!!
problem:
When they play/fight Betty gets soo excited and barks non stop...it really does go right through your head. I love watching them play so don't want to stop them but wondered if there is anyway of stopping her bark at the same time.
This sounds like a tall order and I am probably being a bit unrealistic but thought it was worth asking!!

Yes we need video evidence before we could possibly help you :D

Actually, have no idea on this one. Why don't you ask Anne Rodgers on Owners Club FB page. She's always really helpful.

There probably is something you can do about it, but guess it would need a behaviourist to do it right. I've read you can get dogs to bark on command first and then tell them to stop. Sounds like hard work to me.

I've tried teaching Millie Quiet, but its a bit hit and miss and I'm sure I waste my breath half the time.

What if Betty teaches Ted to bark too ;)

I will try to take a video...just a bit scared Katie will come and take Ted back due to Betty abuse!!
Haha, i wouldn't take him off you! I also don't believe that gorgeous Betty would do anything so naughty!!

All i can say is it's a good job you chose Ted!! Miss bossy knickers the second has noises to make your ears bleed! Imagine 2 of them :eek:

I think we caught glimpses of that whilst you were out of the room...hence why we chose Ted....two bossy knickers together ....too much for me to handle:D:D

When Hatties barking gets really loud I use my clicker it cuts through into her brain and she runs to me for a treat! It has been a simple but effective godsend. Any time I use the clicker she comes running, breaks the cycle and for a few moments gives you control. Methinks my clicker will be in overdrive once Minton arrives!
