Barking At Other Dogs
My puppy is 13 weeks old. We just got her last week. She's great with people and babies, but every time she sees another dog on a leash, she barks like crazy and wants to charge at them. She has no problem with dogs in houses we pass, or dogs behind fences, just those on a leash, on the other or same side of the street. We're enrolled in puppy training, but that's not for another 2 weeks, after she's had her last round of shots and is "allowed" to socialize with other dogs.
I've tried to keep walking past the dogs, but she doesn't want to budge. I bend down, put my arm around her and reassure her, but she continues barking at the other dogs.
I'm afraid we won't be able to learn/accomplish much in puppy classes if she can't stop barking/charging at other dogs. Any suggestions on what I should do to calm her or stop the barking, keeping in mind she's not supposed to be with other dogs until she has her shots in 2 weeks?
