2 posts in this topic

I have a Westie, male, 8 year old. We have been in this new house for almost a year. He has been quite good playing at the back garden just keep barking at the squirrels that he sees in the trees. But now the next door neighbour has a kitten and my dog can smell it through the fence. He is going mad. Starts with wee noises and then he can't stop barking. I don't know what to do. My neighbour from the other side already complained. Please, please....what can I do to stop the barking? Need advice urgently.Thanks

It's not an instant fix, but you can train a 'quiet' cue. Bizarrely you start by training a bark - there are videos on YouTube. But it will be hard if the kitten is causing him so much interest. Could you arrange for them to meet in controlled circumstances, so it holds less mystery and becomes less interesting?
