|Oops. Forgot to finish the title. How to bark on command.
I know this subject has been covered before but it didn't apply to me at the time, but now I'd like to know.
How do you get a dog to bark on command?
Moose isn't a barker unless he hears something at 3 in the morning that triggers his need to bark and it's a super deep bark. But not at a time to capture it.
Well, he does bark when we play, but it's not deep, it's higher pitched. How do I capture that bark while we're playing?
The reason I'm interested in this now, is about 10 minutes ago someone, I assume a solicitor of some kind, knocked on my front door. It's 8:30 at night, dark and I am not going to open my door. I never do unless I'm expecting someone.
When the person knocked Moose looked over towards the door. The person knocked again 30 seconds later and Moose stood up this time, looking at the door and whining. (he knows a knock means visitors).
Quietly I was encouraging him to bark by growling and barking to Moose hoping he'd bark back. Don't know why I thought that would make him bark, but I really wanted the person on the other side of the door to hear that I've got a big 'ol dog.
