    Default BARKING

    In the last couple of week so George has started barking at everything and anything. He never barked when we got him first at 10 weeks he is now just 6 months.
    Is it maybe a puberty issue and if so how do you deal with it? I do intend to have him neutered within the next month or 2 I just need to arrange it with the vet and also that I have time off to take care of him afterwards.
    All help would be appreciated.

    It depends on what he is barking at. Mine barks at just about everything that invades her space or even a leaf blowing in the wind yet she is quiet when there is a cat on the fence and she is going to be 3.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Yeah it's the smallest of things like the light on the heating timer to blowing leaves and he will for sure bark at cats. But he seems ready to bark before anything even happens just as we let him out to the bathroom he is barking as soon as his paw hit the yard. He never did this that's why I'm just wondering if it's a phase like puberty for example.

    Could be anything.... he found his 'voice' or as Todd stated -- they see anything that they feel does not belong (blowing leave, cat, plastic bag, vacuum cleaner) all heck breaks loose.

    Our female, Banks was a mouthy beeotch.... barked at everything and anything that got in her line of sight just making sure you knew she was there to be reckoned with

    I have 4 bulldogs and when they bark i have learned which one is barking and if i should check things out based on the bark.. sounds funny i know my husband says the same thing , but only one of them is our true guard dog.. if she barks during the night my husband jumps up and is checking things out.. the other 3 don't usually bark unless they are playing and one has something that the other one wants... yeah, they are just like kids... i say better then kids because i can put them in a kennel (which i don't do ) but its legal.. i think it wouldn't be so much if you put a kid in a kennel and leave.. lol.. no, in case you were wondering i don't have human kids.. lol.. -249909_1830404438897_2396957_n-jpg Abbey our guard dog.. i think its because her ears stick up and she hears better.. lol

    Default Re: BARKING

    I've noticed Bass barking a lot more than usual lately (he's two). He didn't bark much at all during the puppy/toddler months, so this is just weird.
    Sometimes it's at the front door - but no-one is there and lately it's almost every time my hubby "settles down" for the evening…Bass will grab his tire, give him that certain "stare" and bark - and bark - and bark I'm thinking it's more of an attention, I miss you, play w/me NOW thing, but it's bazaar…he never used to do this.

    This must be an epidemic! Spartacus has recently started barking a lot too all of a sudden. Be would bark at the blender when I would make my smoothie, the vacuum cleaner, the usual things that a dog would normally bark at around the house or people passing by. But now, this is getting a little out of hand. He recently started barking when I would go to bed. Now, I work the "graveyard" shift, so, I really need my sleep. This is when he finds it to be the perfect time to go on a barking rampage.

    Ok guys well thanks for that I guess it just happens I just thought it was odd for it to suddenly start when a dog normally didn't bark but we all change so I suppose they are the same.
    Again thanks for the support much appreciated.
