Hey, i'm new to this forum. I have 3 corgis, 2 that are 1.5 years (not realated) and a 12.5 year old. 2 femals one male. they love to be outside and stay out tthere fro hours at a time. We have an invisable fence that they never try to break from, however (especially at night) they bark loudly and constantly. if we are outside they wont bark but when they are out by them selves they do. we have tree acres and they are usually at the farthest corner, we have lots of dear and foxes and what not that i think they are barking at. Is there a way i can cure this. 2 out of the three are smart and are very well behaved, the other is a little more like trying to train a cat. she is definatly a dumb blonde, but she makes up for it is loks lol. But she is a follower so if i can get the other 2 to stop she will.

Probably should bring them in at night...if they are barking som'thing is bothering them...

dogs bark excessively because they are scared...bored...frustrated...etc...

To fix this you need to go out there EVERY time and stand between them and what they are barking at and tell them "its OK" or shush them if need be....dont' yell... praise them for being quiet...give treats for being quiet...

good luck

I think they are barking at something like a fox because there is a fox that lives in our yard...and i dont keep them out side at night just for like 10 min so they go potty. But if i go outside they are quiet. we use a clicker cuz they can hear it, but we use it for the opposite reason they are made. one of our dogs is scared of the noise the clicker makes and we taught the others that if they hear the clicker to stop what they are doing. and when then when they are done barking i call them in, or i call them in to stop barking, but i'm worried about bothering our neighbors

Trippe my dog Emma always barks . To prevent this my mom (who gets very annoyed from all the barking) wants me to turn around until she stops barking. It hasn't fully worked yet but it's getting better. If you use it then here's a tip don't take forever to throw the ball.
