Me again .... My little pup is being the typical pup and I understand how they are . I am looking for tips on how to get him to relax or not bark when he is around stimuli that gets him going . For instance he barks and barks at the rake when raking leaves , at the shovel , vacuum and all that kind of stuff. I say " no" .." no noise" , hold his mouth shut , try and divert his attention but he is relentless. I let smell and look at the object . Hes not scared of the rake /shovels etc.. he just won't quit barking at them . Nothing seems to work to get him to just watch or do something else . Any tips or comments is appreciated as always . I am guessing I just have to be patient and just keep raking and such until he gets used to it .
