stop my dog from barking
2 year old basset hound. Barks at anything she hears and sees out the window. Barks at any thump that comes from inside the house. Knows I don't like the barking. she lays down when I get up or tell her to stop but continues with whines and small barks.

A lot of times dogs bark out of boredom. If you don't already, how about spending a bit more time with her, playing with her, teaching her tricks, going for walks, etc?
(Mental exercise is important, too. Which is why I mentioned teaching tricks.)
Also toys like the Kong which you fill with food, or the buster cube (which is the same principle but works differently).
