Well, my dog Chips is around 4 1/2 years old and we got him from a humane society. [People think he is a german Shep mix, and our family thinks he’s mixed with treeing tennessee brindle] He came from a shelter in Tennessee becasue they did not have room for more dogs. He is a sweetie and likes certain dogs [like females bigger than him] Now when he sees certain dogs out the window [akita, lab, pugs, irish settlers etc) he begins barking crazily at them. After they are petty far away from the window he will bark/whine at them. He won’t stop it and we can’t take him to the dog park becasue he began fighting with the huskies. We’ve tried shock collars [he doesn’t really care how many times it shocks him if he hates the dog], saying “NO”, making him sit, having him focus his attention on us not other dogs but it doesn’t work. Citronella collar might help, but I need to make him understand.[He also barks then whines at motorcycles and he almost slipped out of his collar to chase one]HELP?
Some of you who can’t read shock collars don’t wok for my dog
And for those who were useful: Choke collar will actually choke him.. when he sees dog/motorcycle he would not stop barking/pulling for ANY reason.. head halter might work. Any other suggestions?
[I forgot to add to last detail]
My dog can’t hear me when he is barking! Or he tunes everything completely the only way to get him to stop is gently “hit” him with a pillow. [I’m not actually hitting him ;D]
