Property barking

I need suggestions how to stop Shane constant barking at other dogs walking by the property. When a person is walking by he is good and well come back when I call him...here are problems

1. If a dog is walking by, Shane goes into a frenzy, and depending on his mood he will either listen or continues his barking embarrassing me and scaring the crap out of the person.

2. When it is just a person walking by, Shane will bark, but once I call him, he will come. HOWEVER, if my mom or sister tries to call him, he will give them a hard time.

How I plan on training him is to
1. Use a 50 ft lead, so it will allow him room to run and then
2. Sorta borrow my neighbor's dog, have her walk constantly by the property
3. When Shane starts barking, I will use "Come" command, if he refuses to listen, I will pull him back using the lead.
4. Reward when he listens.

Is this a good method? Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks

FYI: the neighbor's dog and Shane will never met. She will always be walking OUTSIDE the property.

Re: Property barking

I saw on one of those dog training shows one day that they had the person being barked at stop and stay there until the dog stopped barking, then they left and the dog got treated. The explanation for why the dog barked at people walking by was that the dog learned that if they barked, they got the response they were desiring - the person left. When the dog realized that the person was only going to leave once they were quiet, the dog was quiet.

Re: Property barking

Is he just as bad in dog class?

What does your instructor recommend? One of the main benefits I found with a group class is this is an issue that is dealt with from the start. With the right leash, right timing, and if the instructor has a good eye this is nipped in the bud quickly and easily.

Re: Property barking

Sadly I am in the mist of finding a new trainer. The old one got a promotion (to detective) so he could no longer find the time to train. I was going to do PP but when I went with Shane, I was not impress the way they did things. I thought it was WAY to harsh.

When I tell people I have a 18 month old GS, who is not very dog friendly, they tend to shy away. So I been doing a lot of reading.

Re: Property barking

I need help badly also. My dog will not stop the excited whining in obedience class. The rest of the class can't hear the lesson half of the time. My dog is also not dog friendly at all.
