Can anyone offer advice on how to control barking? Several other dogs in the neighborhood are allowed to bark constantly. Some days it sounds like a kennel outside. My last 2 dogs didn't pick up the habit. The first because he learned that he had to come inside every time he barked, the second because he just never barks at anything, ever. Charlie will start barking from the moment i let him out in the yard until I make him come inside. He doesn't bark on walks, doesn't bark in the house, but he barks incessantly out in the yard.
