Excessive Barking.

Excessive Barking.




So I have two dogs that bark at anything that goes by the house. Dogs, people and cars. So trying to be a good neighbor especially to my next door neighbor who is NYPD and works 8pm to 4am I bought a Pet Agree ultrasonic trainer. I just used it for the first time and my 1 1/2 year old Pitty responded immediately. My 7 1/2 year old Corso did not. They said older dogs do not always respond and that some do not respond right away. Has anyone else tried this. These are the big mouths.

I dont have any info, but wanted to commend you for being so considerate of your neighbors. We have the sweetest dog in the world next door, but he is a barker. It does get trying. Yes, dogs bark...but for an hour straight? Makes me want to bark too!

Beautiful dogs by the way!

Our neighbor's small dog was a barker.. I called him 'Barky, the Wonder Dog' LOL.

After 5-6 years, the barking came to an abrupt stop when the dog tangled with a skunk. So if things don't work out for your older dog.....

A friend of mine used a citronella version and it worked awesome on her dog but at the time she wasn't that old. (She's almost 15 now I think)

I commend you for being a good neighbor. The world could use more neighbors like you! Our neighborhood is a constant cacophony of dogs barking and subwoofers.

We tried everything when we lived in a development, for our neighbors barking dogs. They weren't as gracious as you to solve the problem. Nothing worked on those schnauzers. We ended up moving to save our sanity. Best move ever!Then we had a walker hunting dog that barked too much for me. He learned about a shock collar.

I had a 1 1/2 year old hound mix that was a barker. Bought a shock collar unit that could be controlled manually. Shocked him twice, never barked outside again. For us, it worked like a charm. But the story doesn't end there. Our hound passed away (old age) many years ago. I brought the shock collar in for one of my crazy coworkers to 'play' with. He rigged it to a metal pole birdfeeder. Talk about fun with squirrels.

I finally ended up calling the police after years of the neighbor's dogs barking. Animal control reports to the police here. We were very friendly with the neighbors and I received years of excuses. They are more retired now and traveling to their other homes a lot. Their daughter would leave the dogs out all night. They would bark throughout the night.

Finally called the police after several b.s. excuses and the daughter lying to us.

They haven't talked to us since. the neighbors that is ... not the dogs. Theeth smiley
