My dog barks. Constantly. Does anyone have any tips on what I could do to get her to stop? Current methods include yelling at her and putting her in her kennel. Effective for that moment, totally ineffective otherwise, and I'm getting tired of it. I need advice on the best way to handle the situation. Here's the long story for those who care to read it: Dog is medium-small. Lives indoors, has free run of the house, and a dog flap to get outside into a little fenced dog run. Female, Welsh Corgi mix, a Cardigan I think, but could be Pembroke. Very cute and adorable and a really good dog other than the barking. Types of barking: 1. Alarm barking: "WOOFWOOFWOOFWOOFWOOF!!!" Randomly, 24/7, several times an hour, dog will freak out and tear off to attack and eat "something". A car door can close two blocks away and she freaks. Same if someone comes to the door, or walks on the sidewalk, or rides by on a bike. She even does it if any neighbor within sight decides to work in their yard. She doesn't stop, either, she just keeps going and going and going until she's been yelled at eight times, or grabbed and put into her kennel. Especially annoying at 3 in the morning. 2. Talking back: (under her breath): "Grrrr... woof... woof... grrrr...". Happens randomly when she thinks there might be something to bark at but isn't sure. Also happens every time we get her to stop her alarm barking. She wanders around with the scruff of her neck sticking up, growling and woofing quietly. If not addressed she will escalate back into alarm barking. 3. Annoyance barking: This is your normal, typical dog barking. Like when we let her in the back yard to play and she runs back and forth along the fence barking at everyone who walks by on the sidewalk behind the house. Or when she just feels like barking (which is always). 4. "I'm going to defend you" barking: We can't take her on a walk, or anywhere. If any person or other animal comes within 20 feet of us she freaks out. Barks like mad, tries to eat them, and won't stop no matter what we do or say to her. She'll pull on her leash so hard she can't breath and she'll still bark while gasping for air. Please help... I'm willing to take the time to work with her. She's a great dog. We've taught her all sorts of tricks. She's good with the kids. She's cute and fun to play with. But we don't know what to do with this barking.
