Penny is a pit bull who has just recently started barking a lot (10 months old). She crouches down in a “I’m getting ready to pounce” position and then barks nonstop, essentially wanting us to chase her or pay attention to her. How do I break her of this habit?
Remember to stay positive and use lots of reinforcement when she does a behavior you like.
Thank you for the question!
