Senior Lab with New Barking Issue
Our lovely girl is 13 and deaf, but otherwise happy -- as long as we are around. She can no longer go upstairs so I sleep with her in the downstairs guest room. This is a must because when I go upstairs or leave the house she barks, and she would bark all night. She was not much of a barker until recently. Now, I spend as much time as possible downstairs, but I do need to go upstairs sometimes, and she will bark the whole time I am up there. I do need to leave early sometimes, and she will bark and wake up anyone trying to sleep. I have tried holding her muzzle and saying NO when I catch her barking, but she goes back to it again. I will NOT use a shock collar.
