Hello, Thought I asked you guys if you have any training suggestions for dog's barking to seek attention. Bowie doesn't bark in general except when there are unknown visitors coming to our house and the occasional bark to other dogs. It normally doesn't last long and it's not an aggressive bark - it's more him saying hello! He used to bark when we're on the phone and not paying him attention but he has stopped doing that. However we haven't managed to fully curb his barking when we talk to our friends/visitors and not paying him attention. It's like 'I want to join in as well!' but really it gets annoying and we feel bad to our friends as the conversations are often interrupted. Sometimes I would give him his toy stuffed with treat/bone to chew to keep him busy or when he's barking I'll tell everyone not to look or pay him attention and when he stops he gets the attention but he really tests us at times. He's got a loud, deep bark, it's hard not to automatically look So guys do you have any training suggestions to share?
