    I once had a golden retriever who did this- we found out he had hearing issues.

    He must be picking up on my lack of patience some days. I have been using the kennel more often and he quickly calms down after a time out. It's like he comes out and does the "walk of shame"

    I have two boys, Rocky and Rambo... Totally unalike, Rocky is laid back, quiet, and like snoopy, everything he does, he does calm, kewl, and collected.... Rambo on the other hand, is a total handful... He barks, just to bark... He sits on the furniture and looks into space and barks, He stares at Rocky and barks, when I answer my phone, he really cuts up.... so 2 things I do that helps, First tool I used was to put him in his crate when I was on the phone and he wouldn't get quiet, Then I used the phone, and after hanging up, got him from his crate, and let him out, he was better... Something I found worked better for us both.... "Ice Cubes" i'm not sure if they freeze his tonsils closed, or numb his throat where he can't bark, or exactly what they do.... But feed him ice cubes, and watch the barking stop... Give it a try.

    Just one question...does he get what he want's when he barks? Try not to give him any attention when he barks, turn your back, walk away...and don't give up! He's a bulldog and will go on for a loooong time, but you just need to be more bull headed and stay strong. Give him what he want's when he shuts up, he hopefully will get the picture at some point.

    It's funny to read about everyone's experiences, lol. Boeboe is a barker, she barks at EVERYTHING and doesn't listen when I tell her to stop, in fact she put in a small extra "woff" after every "no" I say. Heard from a dog trainer that I have to "claim" the things she barks at... but I've given that up loooooooooooong ago, I wouldn't be doing anything else than walking around trying to claim ****

    I'm going through the exact same thing right now. Bocephus will just sit next to me if I'm working or watching tv and he will bark for an hour if I don't give him the attention he is demanding. I've found that time outs are helping a LOT. I've tried the water spray bottle but he literally tries to catch the water in his mouth like it's a game. He's only 6 months old so I'm hoping I can get him out of this habit soon

    Actually lately he barks when the phone rings and I'm on it and is a complete jerk to anyone that comes around barking and demanding attention. He would take all the attention he can get, but you can play, do all of the good stuff. and I finally break down, put him in the crate when he is not satisfied, and usually he quiets down. Until he comes out, then its all over again.

    Yep he barks when the phone rings, and when I am on the phone. Tried ice cubes, didnt work! Now he's craving all the attn from anyone that comes into my home. I just need a good distraction because he is SO stubborn he just keeps testing and testing.

    I tried the loud penny shaker, clicker, and water bottle. They are all games and something he can potentially get his hands on and destroy.

    to a dog.... any attention is attention... even negative attention gets them what they want. as hard as it is, have you tried to TOTALLY ignore - turn your back and not acknowledge at all?

    OH the last remark was a joke, when I take him out of the home he drinks from a water bottle instead of his water dish.

    As I type, he is barking. If I go in the kitchen and do something, like unload the dishwasher he will lay down and fall asleep. If I am watching tv he is barking, and his bark is "bossy" to say the least. I LOVE MY DOG, sure I probably raised him this way, but good grief I cant even date with my dog acting this way LOL
