Bark! Bark! Bark!

Now that the weather is warming up, Cody (9 mo. old Cocker Spaniel) is spending more time in the backyard. In the last couple of weeks, I've noticed that his barking has increased greatly. He barks at anyone who walks past the house, he returns the bark of other dogs in the distance. I can't leave him out for more than a few minutes, for fear of him disturbing the neighbors. Any suggestions?

I know someone who bought one of these and it has been very successful with their dog. I like that it doesn't harm the dog, just emits a sound that gets their attention. It's also reasonably priced.

Sounds like a potential cocker trait.
Bailey also barks alot, but is starting to get better.... slowly
However, I kinda like that collar myself, may look into one at some point. Thanks for that BMD
