Ferocious barking at neighbors
I don't know what happened to our sweet, friendly, non-barking puppy......she used to do a couple of "wuff wuffs" and wiggle her butt when meeting neighbors while we were out for a walk. Today she barked and barked and barked at everyone, even a man she had been extremely friendly with a couple of days ago. It really took me by surprise and I picked her up each time it happened because I didn't know what else to do. It quieted her down for a moment, but she squirmed to get down again so she could continue barking. She's just recovered from eye surgery and an ear infection, and has been such a happy puppy since she didn't have to wear the cone anymore. She's almost 7 months old and I'm wondering if this has something to do with adolescence? Any advice on how to deal with this?
