Can anyone help with a quick fix tip on how to stop a dog barking in the middle of the night? Roxy has started this recently and it's quite annoying to say the least. Usually it's other dogs barking in the neigbourhood that set her off. I can hardly hear them from our bedroom but she has obviously no trouble at all. She sleeps inside, in our bedroom, and everytime she goes off my heart misses a beat or two. Any ideas anyone to stop that? Bearing in mind being woken that rudely at 3am doesn't allow for any complex manouvers... usually I just stumble out of my bed, falling over the other dog and uttering something completely unintelligable in German. OH isn't much help either.
She doesn't bark much during the day... although she will bark at neighbours. I usually distract her when she does that, never yell at her.
