  • Can you chain heer up at night, or put her in a kennel outside and let her run free during the day? Hubby has working cow dogs , and i coudln't imagine bringing one of those suckers into the house at night. I wouldn't have a house at night so i am not even going to suggest that.. Some dogs are just not house dogs. And i am sure if you could have then you would have. The only other thing is maybe see if you can run a hot wire or one of those invisible fence things along the top so when she tries to jump it giver her a shock. That will probably stop her. And you can turn it down low just enough to let her feel the pop of it.

  • Why don't you bring her inside? I'm sure your neighbor really enjoys listening to her barking at all hours of the night.

  • ya, why can't you bring her in the house? that's a stupid reason to get rid of your dog. you already have a simple solution, bring her in.

  • they have these matts that shock you when you step on them. i would run them along the back fence where it would have to step tp get to the fence. as for the barking get the bark collar or bark collar spray.

  • there are things you can buy at places like petsmart. it's for nonsence barking, it's not a collar so it's not 'cruel'. you turn it on and put it in the yard. it looks like a bird house and it has a microphone thing built onto it. when your dog barks, it makes an annoying sound that only the dog can hear. it may take a week or so to really start working, but my dog stopped barking after 5 minutes. and my moms dog stopped immediately. you could get an invisible fence too.

  • Yeah I dont understand why the dog cant sleep in the house either.maybe in a small room like the laundry room, or the basement. or do as my girlfriend does buy the dog a cage big enough for it and put the dog in there for the night. other wise I dont know what to tell you. good luck...
