I have a Soft Coated Wheaten terrier and I live way back in the woods. He is hyper vigilant over animals, birds, and even reflections on the walls or ceilings. Any time I get up from my chair he jumps up and starts barking. When it's time to go outside he barks over and over. Sometimes he stands at the edge of his confined area and barks late at night and won't come in. I know he was bred in Ireland for keeping rodents off the farms but he is making me deaf. He is also a jumper and SCWT breeders affectionately call this the Wheaten Greetin---NOT ACCEPTABLE! I don't get too many visitors but when he is around a lot of people for a while, he is much better, as though he thrives on kids and chaos. I needed him to be my "ears" way out here in the country but he is way too vocal. When he thinks he hears something outside and it's late at night, he'll "argue" with me about it, though not barking, but quite loudly. He's scared of riding in the car so has to ride in his crate. Other than all of this, he's a hoot! He loves to cuddle and get his ears rubbed and is a lover. And did I say HE'S CUTE!?

My foster, Seymour, barks at his own
That means all night at windows, when ever he sees the mirror, and all day and night at the glass covering the fire place... My 3 dogs I own guard the house, but other than that they are quite. Please help. I need to get him to stop to help him find a new home. (He is a double dog rescue dog.)

My dog will excessively, when we leave the house, when people arrive, when pieces of garbage drift down the road. We live in a calm arrive, with minimal amount of traffic.... But at times it does get to the point where we have to stand in front of the windows to try and avoid their chances of looking out the window to bark... help!

While a good article, it doesn't address my dog's issue: barking incessantly whenever we get into the car. She's fine in the car by herself, but once I get in, she starts barking and won't stop. I've covered the windows, let her sit in the front seat, given her toys and treats, talked firmly, softly, practiced getting in and out of the car when she barks, windows down/up, music on/off--to no

She likes getting in the car.... I did adopt her about 4 months ago, so I don't know her history with cars. Fixing this problem is important to me because I need to take her places to exercise, bathe and travel.

Am wondering if putting her in a crate in the back would help. Suggestions?

We have a mini pincher/jack and she used to bark like crazy when we would leave her until we started giving her a treat and she calmed down. This article also gives great advice in other areas of problem barking. Good article. Thanks

My male poodle barks at other dogs when we go for a walk. He lives with 2 other dogs peacefully. For some time, I have found that treats are a great help!!
