Hi, I have a new dog (she is a sighthound) that is about 15-16 months old.
She came from a kennel with other dogs and a quieter street about 5 weeks ago
She sleeps in my bed at night and goes most places with me.
When someone is home you hardly hear a noise from her when she is out in the yard BUT of an evening when I do afternoon shift (I'm on a rotating roster) if no one else is at home, she barks for a couple of hours. I got phoned at work tonight by a neighbour.
Most neighbours it's not an issue and they are allowing her to have time to settle in but I have one neighbour that it is (council ranger is about to visit me because of the complaint).
I'm trying to reduce the impact (have even come home from work to collect her) but this can't continue for too long.
I have thought about trying a barking collar. What are people's experiences with the different types citronella and electronic?
Thanks in advance
