My pup Cotton is 6 months Maltipoo and healthy. However she loves to bark at people NON-STOP when I walk her. When She is at home, she will only bark at strange noise or doorbell...etc. But outside the house, she just goes crazy. I've tried to distract her by asking her to sit and giving her treats/praises for sitting and not barking, but the second her bum is off the ground she's at it. I've tried the walking opposite way, she'll find something new to bark at. I'v tried the NO, quiet, shhhh, no barking command. Nothing seems to work. I walk her at the same park everyday, she gets regular exercise and lots of positive attention. I dont know what else to do:shrug: Anybody got any suggestions.
