    That may be the only solution for peace. Pretty does it at times when we let her out for a leak and are too tired to wait for her. We just call her back in. I have found that we have to be proactive with 3 pups and her here making good solutions for all.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    There is so much stuff around at night, being busy and making noises that you can't hear, or stopping when a torch light comes out. Foxes, rabbits, hares, wallabies, wombats, possums, gliders, bats, birds and so on and so on. They are all there. I'll bet Boss is barking at lots of things.

    Could be possums too. Ie if he's under the tree, it could be something in the tree.

    You're going to have to let him know that barking at whatever it is - isn't ok. So do all your bed time routine except stay in your clothes ie pretend.

    When he barks - get out there and squirt him with pump action squirt bottle or water pistol and tell him "uh uh" or "no" - don't shout but be but deep and growly.

    I can't think of anywhere in Canberra a roo can't get to. I've seen them hopping down Belconnen way and Southern Cross Drive. There are so many green belts for them to travel along. At one point I heard one in three car accidents in Canberra involved a kangaroo.

    You ever gone out and barked with him? LOUDER than him?

    And before you pee yourself laughing at me, um, just try it first. You could be surprised.

    Ooh I hope someone videos that! hehe

    If worst comes to worst, you could always crate him at night, that way the others will still have access to outside.

    I was given a tip. Reduce the area size, your dog has to guard. And make him sleep there.
    For us, its a tiny 6' by 3' laundry.
    with behaviour, its easier to change an environment, than it is to change the thing behaving, be it human/dog etc.

    worked well for all my dogs. But each one, when given the entire garden to guard, would bark through the night at various perceived 'invaders'.
