Barking... 22 week old female Jack Russell.
by D Andrew
22 week old female Jack Russell Pup named Effie, had her from 9 weeks old. Has now started barking when out on walks with my husband, and two children. Effie barks at anyone passing and especially with another dog. We also have another 5 year old female dog who is very placid with Effie and doesn't have any bad behaviour traits to speak of. Together they play all day happily, are usually walked daily and are off the lead as the older dog comes to heel with a whistle and is very obedient. Effie appears frightened at times and we feel fear could be the root of her problem, but how do we help her overcome this fear?
