Morning Barking

by Linzi
(Darlington)

Hi there,


I wonder if you can help? My Jack Russell Toby is waking the whole house up on a morning and it seems to be getting earlier and earlier. I am concerned with waking my neighbours when he barks, however I realise If I go downstairs to him, although he stops he has got what he wanted. I really need to try and stop this as it is driving me and my partner crazy so any help would be appreciated! : )

Thank you Linzi

Early barking
by: Greg

I'm wondering if there is some noise going on outside that is waking your Jack up. That's what happened with ours. Dogs have great hearing and little things can easily wake them up. We moved her crate to a different section of the house, covered the crate with a blanket and also put my ipod nearby with white noise playing (I'm sure a regular radio/or tv would work as well). This really helped. We also make sure our Jack has a nice long walk before bed and has some toys in her crate to keep her company.

Good luck!

Sorry, I know how frustrating it can be when our pets are up at all crazy hours. I had that problem with my male, but since it was during housetraining and I didn't want him to have an accident I would go to him. After taking him out I would return him to his crate but he would continue to whine/bark. Finally he earned a spot next to me in the bed. Not the best solution, but I gave up because I was exhausted!Well he now sleeps through the night ~ no issues!

Barking
by: Deborah

I would be very upset myself there is a collar out I do not know where to buy it though it is not a shock collar it just beeps when the dog barks like a phone beep and it really works please look into it I wish I could remember where I got it from and it is harmless and also they have another collars that sprays Citronella when the dog barks you can get it at any pet store and it is also harmless.
Good Luck and I hope this helps
