Least favorite habit

I was wondering what is your dog's least favorite habit you wish you could change? I know I hate it that my eldest Yorkie has taught Titan how to catch and kill garden snakes.

Emmy has this HUGE "BoWoooowwww" bark that she does if she see's another dog on the sidewalk. It is very different than a regular bark and literally makes my eardrums rattle in my ears. Drives me crazy!
Stella has to start barking as soon as she hears my car pull in the driveway. She barks non-stop until I enter the house and scold her....GRRRRRR
And Heidi is just a barker at every-little-thing-and-person....
OK~ I guess if I could stop alllllllllll barking then my dogs would be perfect!


Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~

With Rufus, it's the running around barking when he hears someone in the driveway or even close the the driveway!

I would have to agree with the barking, but they are dogs. That's what dogs do. Kodi is very verbal and he has different barks for different things, like playing or when he's happy to see you.

Definitely Dora's prey drive. She just can't control herself if there is a small animal in our yard. She just loses it and has to get it.

Dasher has been good so far but he is going thru his teenage stage so I am sure we will have some negotiations. Oh I would make him less food picky for sure though <BG>

Belle's barking like crazy. She is just too alpha and has to set the stage wherever she is!

Posh is not a barker...and the poopybutt, well that's not her fault, so I guess it would be MARKING IN AGILITY TUNNELS AT AGILITY CLASS! So embarrassing!!! We're working on her pack status at home... I want to be the dominant bitch!

I guess the daily annoying thing is that she does that "scratch scratch scratch scratch in rapid speed" thing on my legs when she REALLY wants my attention. Arrrgh.

My only complaint is . . . you guessed it, using my house as a toilet. Aside from that I can tolerate Bailey's high pitched shriek, even though it could shatter glass, and I could even tolerate the dogs running and barking in attack mode when the big dog diagonally behind my house is out at the property line. They get in the flower beds and run like lunatics barking and jumping at the fence.

<b>Just Milo and me, and . . . </b>Bailey makes three . . . until Ruby said, "hey, what about me?"

Scout barks like crazy when someone comes to the house - and has Lincoln barking too. If I pick him up and carry him to door that sometimes helps - but it can be hard to greet people with a crazy wild Hav in your arms!

Still, he is the most affectionate sweet boy. A total lovebug. So, all is forgiven. Even the poop eating thing.
