  • What kind of a dog is he/she? Might seem like a weird question but I've noticed that some breeds of dogs just bark more than others. I have a Jack Russell terrier and a pit bull/Austrialian shepherd mix and the jack russell barks at every little noise and the pit bull I've only heard bark a few times. My jack russell is just very high strung in general and I haven't figured out a way of getting him to stop barking or stressing out.

  • I would shoot her with the water gun everytime....

    Or ..using chains to jingle around and shout LEAVEEE ITTT! and run at her each time..will eventually work...

  • Im a fan of the Dog Whisper, I believe in training and discipline. If you got the patience I would try that.
