Barking!

Hi Guys,

I'm hoping for some advice. Lulu has started barking at everything and nothing. She's barking for no reason and I'm not sure what to do to stop it. Any clues?

Thanks
Lisa

Sorry I should have said more. Lulu is about 11 months. She went through a barking stage early on but has been really good for about the last 5 months. Normally the only time she barks is if the doorbell goes or if she sees next doors cat. Sometimes if there noise outside. The last 3-4 days she has been barking for no reason in the hallway, in the kitchen and upstairs on the landing. I try to look to see what she's barking at - maybe a moth or a spider or the cat up on the kitchen window sill but there is nothing. The only think I can think is that the weather has been very different here the last couple of days and occasional light rain and maybe she can hear that but I'm not sure.

Yeah adolescence http://www.dogstardaily.com/training...-weeks-2-years can change things. You probably have two different kinds of barking here. Eg. one is typical guard/alert barking ,and secondly you might have some attention seeking or boredom barking. I have a rather long article if you want to email me privately at [email protected] it's too long to post here. BtW great pics
