    Default Barking

    I just want to know if anyone knows how to stop my lab from barking at people. She is completely harmless but when she sees anyone, even walking by my house she barks at them. It's kind of intimidating for people that don't know her. I mean as soon as she gets close to anyone she lays on her back, wagging her tail like crazy. I just need some tips on how to stop her initial barking at people. Thanks...

    Hi!

    When we talk to a dog as they bark, we are actually encouraging the behaviour even if we say "no". It's only barking to a dog and so they think you're doing it too if that's the case [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]
    (So in essence most dogs are just doing what they think they should or are being told).

    I learned this from a book by a dog behaviourist Stanley C. I googled his work for you and maybe this page will help.

    Goodluck! Looks like a beautiful pup!
    When I was born I was so surprised I didnít talk for a year and a half.
