Thank you SB and Mys

Yeah the barking thing is going to be very hard....

She'll bark, if she hears a new and strange sound from the staircase or the other appartments, WHEN I'm home.

If she's home alone she doesnt bark..

I have tried praising her and saying the danish word for "speak" and I can get her to bark a few times, while she's agitated.. If I try 5 minutes later, she is just standing there looking at me like I've just dropped down from the sky

Almost every single trainer at training have tried.. Most of the people on my team have tried aswell...

4 dogs sitting side by side, 3 barking and getting treats, no go for Luna...

I've tried the standing with a treat, trying to get her to bark, all she does is try all the commands she knows, and when that doesnt work.. she just patiently waits...

I suppose you have tried getting the 'stooge' to hide and then once Luna runs up the stooge teases her with a special toy and when/if she barks the stooge has a good game of tug with her? Animal skins seem to be a successful item to get dogs 'worked up'. If she can be trained like that she may evetually run up to the hidden person and bark in the expectation of being rewarded with a game.

Uhm no, we havent.. Maybe I should ask my trainer about that on sunday.. I dont have a voluntary "stooge" here at home... So its kinda hard to train during the week...


Thank you Christine
