I think my sheltie may be broken

Post by Urbntngo » Sun Mar 15, 2020 3:17 pm

I have a 4ish year old male sheltie that I inherited when my oldest went off to college. This dog barks at EVERYTHING. Come in the house? Bark like mad. Run the Hoover? Bark like mad. Leaves go skittering across the porch? Bark like mad for 20 minutes. Get up to go to the bathroom? You guessed it. I've begun (shamefully) wishing it was humane to clip his vocal cords bc hes driving me to my wits end. I've tried spray bottles, cans filled with change, cans filled with rocks, yelling, holding his snout closed, bark collars....none of it has more than a marginal effect. Someone PLEASE have some advice for me.
