Hello - just need some advice about barking dogs.
Our mini-dachshunds, Marla and Ziggy, are big barkers. Part of it is we live in the middle of town and they love to "chase" and bark at cars.
But recently we've had to start putting Marla on a long chain due to her finding ways into the sheep pen. It has happened 3 times and the sheep have gotten bit and cut from her dogged determination to chase and bite them. However, now she barks and barks in a higher pitched "voice". We've done just about everything to make her hush but so far, nothing works. And yes, we've reinforced the sheep pen many times but she finds a way in regardless.
How do you all feel about those collars that make dogs not bark?
If you think they are ok, have any of you used them? What brand?
