Puppy barking non-stop during the day
While we are gone at work out new puppy barks a ton. We thought it was for just a few minutes and then he quit (this is what happened when we listen in) but the neighbors claim he will go for hours. I get my brother to come over at lunch to walk and play with him but apparently it isn't helping a lot.

I decided to try the PB stuffed Kong today but after giving the puppy a little taste of PB last night, he woke up this morning with puffy eyes. I thought he was exhausted at first but they were still there some time later.

I guess I'll be trying cheese or almond butter instead now but if anyone has any suggestions please let me know...

To get this out of the way:
-We don't go to him when he is barking or whining, we make him calm down first.
-I play with him in the morning, then my wife does a couple hours later, then my brother does a couple hours later, then my wife does again after work about 3-4 hours later. We try to wear him out but maybe it's not enough. Although he sleeps his butt off during the time we are home. Go figure.

Wife just told me he's now acting a little weird, hopping around and scratching.

Going to vet in a few.

Either way, I'd still appreciate suggestions for barking remedies.

Anyone ever try the citronella or ultrasonic bark stopping methods? I don't want to use a chock collar. It won't end well.

I'd try to fit in as much exercise as possible. Trying to limit extended hours alone is good also, with others stopping by. Shepherds can be 'barky', right now ours only barks if there is something unusual to bark at.

Our new puppy barks, but if I tire her out she sleeps for hours. I also got some large flavored nylabones that i feel are big and safe to leave with her and she likes them so far.
