Sir Barks-A-Lot

Loki and his buddy, Coco, are barkers. Major barkers.

Loki’s bark is quite loud and Coco’s bark is shrill. Their barking sends my elderly father into an anxiety attack. Plus, it just drives us all nuts. So, today my mom and I are working with both of them on barking. We’re using Clicking With Your Dog by Peggy Tillman to reach them to bark when asked to.

My mom has the week off of work so, it will be a week of regular training with them both.

We haven’t done this before because of the stress it causes my dad. Now, he is able to take a higher dose of anxiety meds when needed. Hopefully, we won’t drive him insane during this process.

Wish us luck!
