Question Barking

I do not understand the barking when training. It is if Dexter is trying to tell me something....

I will tell him to sit, he sits, lay down, he lays down....gets all excited, then starts barking. What's with that?

Linda, if you are using treats, he may be telling you to "hurry up with my treat". If I use certain treats - the ones Cicero loves most - he gets excited and he will do what I ask, but quickly, then he wants the treat.

I work with him on a release word ~ "okay" ~ to let him know it's okay to move and he gets his treat. Try saying "waitttttt" or "sheeee" in a very low voice a few seconds, then "okay" and hand him his treat.

It sounds like you are doing a wonderful job with training...and he is learning his commands. Keep it up and he will get better and learn you control when and where.

Sounds like he's saying, "Look Mommy, I did it! Now give me my treat!" LOL

That was a good question, and I had been wondering about that myself. Marble does the same thing, Linda

That's what I thought! Yes, I am using tiny bits of treats.

No clicker training; not really fond of the clicker training.

Reminds me of the Shelties! I think it is funny to watch them in training or agility and barking consistently, but I'm always glad they aren't mine too. Ha!

Are you working with a trainer or doing training at home on your own?

I assume you don't want a lot of barking by the fact that you posted the topic. You can always work on barking as one of your first training areas. Teach him to bark on command and then teach him "no bark."

Gotta love the energetic guys. It is easier to take a dog down a notch than bring him up though Dash just started formal obedience training last night and he barks when he gets bored and excited. He did the sit and down but when I came back around him he didnt feel I released him in time and was looking up barking. In obedience, each bark is a point off so it is something we need to work on. He knows speak so I do a no speak command but it takes practice as I eventually can't give him no speak commands either . He also needs to learn he doesn't get a voice in everything he does- that is going to be hard.

But to be honest I love it He is always telling me how much fun he is really having. I love to see that attitude!

Kimberly- I agree with you about the shelties, they are way way too much for me!
Dave- I am curious how you would train no bark with a clicker?
