TjsShepherds First socialize as much as possible . If you have kids in the family hav them over. Intoduce kids with the dog by them giving the pup treats. Dogs love anybody with treats lol. Second more leash training the dog need be more focused on you than anything else. Work with distractions have something to hold the dogs attention wen you need tasty treats, favorite toy etc..best of luck

SuperG Sounds like your pup has found a bit of bravado which he is exercising....

Might be a good time to temper his "swagger" appropriately.

Freddy Lots of good advice in the comments above. I would repeat that it's not a good idea to put a bark collar and that young of a pup. When he's older if you choose to use it, it will have no effect on IPO barking. We have club members who remove theirs from the dog's neck literally when they are taking them out for their protection session. They use them so the dogs don't bark themselves out before it's their turn. When they get on the field and see the blinds, trust me, there is no problem barking.

Sri But if you are crating at night and day too, isnt that too much? I think people generally do only upto 8 hours a day?

I would get a good trainer to work with and do a lot of OB with him. He's 6 months old pretty easy to train at this point if you do it right.

wyoung2153 OP I would do a trial and sleep down with your dogs for a few nights and see if something changes. Sorry to say, but the wife not wanting the "dog smell" pretty much went out the window when she agreed to have 4 dogs. I'd definitely avoid the bark collar on a 4 month old puppy. Not of fan of them to begin with but that's just my opinion and me never having a super barky dog.

Does she get annoyed with the barking?
