Sleeping Time not Barking Time

Last night, Ben decided to start barking at something after everyone was already in bed.  I told him to be quite, but he just ignored me.

I got out of bed, went to the window, grabbed Ben’s collar, and walked him to his normal sleeping spot.  I told Ben it was time for sleeping and not time for barking.  I pointed to his sleeping spot and told him to go to bed.

Ben plopped down and let out a loud pitiful sounding moan.  He looked totally disgusted with the situation.  However, he did go to sleep and didn’t say anything else for the rest of the night.

  1. My shibas don’t bark much. They don’t growl much either. But if the wind has blown something into the yard, or someone is on the sidewalk when they shouldn’t be, they give one woof. I usually walk to the window or door and take a look. That’s enough for them. I have them agreeing not to bark more than one woof when the doorbell rings. Usually they think it’s pizza delivery so their interest is high. It’s funny how dogs communicate with us. They deal with boredom by making our lives a little more interesting.

    My new neighbours have a dog… They haven’t moved in yet, but when they do I hope they’re as persistent as you.
