What's wild, is my neighbors were with their dog pretty much 24/7. Mom was a stay at home mom, and was there all day pretty much all the time and the kids were in school. They tried SO hard to train him. I watched her out there working the training program... no luck ... They even sent him away for a whole month to obedience school... no luck. The little dude just LOVED to bark. It just makes me sad to think about him... if they'd had him bark softened, he could have barked his little heart out and not bothered anyone.
I didn't have any problem with his incessant barking to be honest. I have an uncanny ability to block that kind of repetitive noise out and not hear it if I choose not to. It probably comes from living with hundreds of parrots at one time! LOL. But I think if Bailey didn't stop barking, one of the other neighbors was going to kill him themselves. The whole situation was just sad.
