My puppy gets excited, wants to play, wants attention, etc. and will start barking. (She doesn't bark yet at people walking by or anything of that nature - it's always in relation to play or attention.)

My question is, how do I prevent this? Is it a phase she'll grow out of?

I have tried turning my back on her when she barks, but then she attacks my feet. I put her in her timeout area, and while it does calm her down, she goes back to barking when we start playing again.

Thoughts? Techniques that have worked?
