Make that dog shut up!
My mother's dog has perhaps the loudest, high pitched, most out of control bark on the entire planet. When outside, he will bark his ass off. When inside and he sees something outside, he will bark his ass off. If someone knocks on the door, its like a siren blaring that can be heard a mile away. When my mother comes through the door... well lets just say that I may have permanent hearing damage. She refuses to hit at him or yell at him, but I have come close to ripping his vocal chords out myself. Does anyone have any ideas how to train a dog to stop barking?
PS: What does it mean if a dog shivers but is obviously not cold? Nervous?
