Emma is going through quite the barking phase right now. She will bark for anything and everything. Her bone drops off the couch, she barks. Your attention is not 100% on her, she barks. I hug my husband and leave her out, she barks. She is bored, she barks. We're not certain what started it all because before this point she was a quiet puppy. Emma did start teething 3 weeks ago and that's about the time the barking began. No idea if they are related.
Paul and I plan to sign Emma up for puppy training classes at the Twin Cities Obedience Training Club here shortly. TCOBTC has been recommend to us over Petsmart's classes by a few people, and we're hoping it will help us figure out the best way to deal with a few things. Barking being one of them.
Maybe walking nicely for mom and dad as well... :)
