Observations from our walk today....with training question...
we walk Quincy all the time [our beagle] and now that the weather's nice; everyone's dog is hanging out in the front yard, and most without owners around...some on leads, some invisible fencing; even some loose with owners....
Most dogs practically attack us barking like crazy; little ones yipping like crazy....ugh. It got me wondering...is there any way to train your dogs to maybe sound the warning bark but once owner somehow lets them know it's ok, stop?
I know havs aren't supposed to be 'yippy' dogs but this has me a little concerned. I would not leave my dog in the front yard unsupervised [frankly I don't understand this trend], but I dont' want people to be terrorized walking by and I want my dog with me if I'm in front....some of my neighbors are going to get in trouble with their dogs.
Quincy barks in the back yard loose [fenced] but in the front yard I keep him close by so he is relatively calm and not at all scary.
