Dog Barks at the Neighbour
We just adopted a Chocolate lab (female) earlier this week. We have had her around alot of people and other animals. Have never heard her bark. UNTIL our older gentleman neighbour comes around. She will constantly bark at him and only him. He's threatened to hit her with a stick if she ever barks at him again. Can't understand why she would only bark at 1 person. How do I make her stop QUICKLY!!
Answer: Dog Barks at the Neighbour
Well - firstly it is very rude for him to suggest that he will hit your dog! Some dogs do react differently to older, handicapped etc people. Sometimes they just don't understand why these people are a little differnt! One of the choc labs I walk does the exact same thing! Maybe you could try squirting her with a water pistol when he attempts to bark.
