Re: Solution for barking dog..............................

If other options do not work

buy a pellet rifle. Approximately 3 pumps will sting but not break the skin. When the dog barks, stealthily give him a shot in the hind quarters. Be careful not to hit the head or eye.

The dog will jump and "yip", then try to figure out the source of the surprise, probably by sniffing the ground frantically.

When he starts barking again, repeat, lather, rinse. Eventuallly he will associate barking with stinging. Sort of like a long-distance bark collar.

Don't be spotted by the owner.

This is known as behaviour modification. It is only to be used when all other methods fail.

Keep in mind that if you're caught you'll pay a stiff fine and possibly do a little time.

Re: Solution for barking dog..............................

for the record, I have never used the method. But I did watch it successfully used by a man who had pleaded with the owner over and over. He worked at home and could not concentrate.

I personally think that allowing a dog to nuisance-bark is unconscionable. I had a nuisance barking dog once, and I purchased a shock collar. I didn't like the idea, but I refuse to put my next-door neighbour through it while I was gone during the day.

I put the collar to my throat and tested it, just to see how "cruel" it was. It was more startling than painful.

I think expecting your neighbours to suffer through the irritation of listening to a constantly barking dog is far more cruel.

Not really. Another neighbor complained to the owner but the dog is still tied to a tree and barks, but not as bad. If he barks during the night, I turn on a fan that drowns out the noise.

You might want to feed the dog. There is that pet food everyone is talking about in the news...

Re: Solution for barking dog..............................

I had this problem about 25 years ago. Neighbor had an old blind dog they would leave outside at might. It would bark around 2:00am for an hour or so. Went on for months. They were too lazy to get up and deal with it. I was working in the day, going to school at night, up late doing home work. Finally got P#ssed off and called the cops. They started doing something about it.

We had Female German Shepard (outside dog obviously). Anyway, when it would thunder she would freak an begin barking. Would not shutup. We would getup and put her in the basement when it rained.
