Stop barking at moving objects?
Hello, My 3 month male gsd gets very crazy anytime I pull out the vacuum or a broom whether he’s in his crate or not. He starts barking like crazy, and it’s not his usual squicky bark, it’s a lower more angrier bark. When I’m vacuuming I usually put him in his crate, He goes absolutely nuts once I turn it on! I’m surprised he hasn’t knocked the crate wall over lol. I usually turn it off and give a firm “no” and continue but this method doesn’t work. I’ve even let him out to see if it changed anything but he just follows the vacuum and barks at it. Same with the broom. I was using it to dust the sidewalk and he went nuts. When I walked towards him with it he ran away scared then continued to bark. I tried giving him some treats while i held it next to him, he took the treats but ran off again barking. I’m assuming he’s afraid of these things? And if so, How do I correct this? I don’t want him to get this habit with other things and if it unfortunately does happen with something else, I’d like to be able to correct it. Thank you very much
