Hi - 1st time poster and dog owner. We have a 5-month old Aussie male red tri-color purchased from a breeder. He gets plenty of exercise, although we haven't found a "job" for him yet, as many have recommended.

Our current issue is his barking. On our walks, he barks at everyone he sees and tries to pull the leash in their direction. Anyone have any ideas on how to get him to stop barking ?

Thanks !

Look up "attention training" and "loose leash walking". You want to get the dog focused on you, not on the surroundings and other people while out walking. Our BC mixes dog trainer worked on that with us and it made a big difference in her leash walking skills.
