Hey all,\n \nWhen I first got my dog, I lived out in the country where I didn't have neighbors. Now I still live in the country but in town where there are others living around me close by. My dog barks at everything including the wind blowing leaves around, lol.\n \nI am looking for advice on making him NOT bark so much. I was suggested a shock collar but I don't want to hurt my little buddy, it there less painful ways I can achieve such a goal? I just want him to quit barking so much. Haha.
