My 13 month old pup has a lovely temperament, she's gentle and loves meeting other dogs. There are no problems when friends bring their dogs into our home. Unfortunately she has developed a 'thing' about animals on TV. She attacks the TV and barks furiously, her tail wags but that could be anxiety? I know what caused the behaviour to start, but won't bore you with that.
I've tried a few things to stop this behaviour. Firstly by getting her to settle and giving her treats - failed. Next I started tying her up in the corner each time she did it, and leaving her there for 10 minutes after she settled - failed. I then tried using water and vinegar spray bottle each time she did it, she would stop, but it didn't deter her from barking at the TV next time she saw or heard an animal. Lastly I put a Thundershirt on her each time I wanted to watch TV, but this didn't stop her either. She does the same thing in other people's homes.
Needless to say I use my reprimand voice whenever she does it. She has been a quick learner with almost everything else, but this defeats me. Is there anything else I can try?
