Aggressive and barks all the time
Our Belle is 8yrs old. She has never been much of a people person, loves our family & no one else. She is crated at night, while we are out of house & when kids are over (which isnt too often). Our real problem is BARKING! She wont stop when we let her outside. If she is in the house she will bark but then stop, if she is in her crate she will bark & then stop but outside she BARKS all the time. We just got an letter from a "neighbor" (not signed of course) saying they were going to turn us into the borough code inforcer. Now with that being said we never leave her outside long (unless we are out there with her) we know she barks so we let her out and then bring her right back in 5 mins TOPS. We believe the "neighbor" is the people over the hill from us who own a pitbull. When Belle sees her she goes crazy! I need some advice quick before they call the police on us. What should we do? Shock collar, no bark sonic machine, dog whistles?? i'm willing to try anything!!!!
