Hello! Recently, probably since around the clock change and darker nights, Ellis has started barking at people on walks. He doesn’t do this during the day, nor does he bark at everyone at night - not sure who he considers ‘barkable’ or not. He isn’t much of a barker generally (on daytime walks or at home), though he does occasionally make himself heard if someone new comes into the house. So far, we’ve tried distracting him, focusing his attention on us, and treating when he’s quiet. I wonder if it’s his second fear stage kicking in? He’s around five and a half months old. Have any of you come across this before, and what did you do or what would you suggest?
