Mine love being outside. But we live on a green belt and there are people and animals. THAT is when they bark.

Same with mine. I don't leave them out more than 10 or 15 minutes anyway. When they want to come in, they just stand there and stare at the door.

I have had 2 dogs that were barkers. The training school told me to get a spray bottle and mix vinegar and water and when they bark, spray them. The vinegar doesn't hurt them but the do eventually end up smelling like a pickle. I have emptied many a bottle on the one dog and am grateful to say it does work.

Honey? Is that you? It's your turn to let the dogs in.
