Customer Question

I have a 14 month old terrier. She is half Caryn and half mini schnauzer. She is a great and happy loving dog to me and people she knew as a puppy but she barks furiously and aggressively when any one comes to visit and won't stop. I don't know what to do about it. Do you have suggestions?

Hi there! My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

What is your girl's name?

Is she spayed?

Is she crate trained at all?

Has she nipped at anyone, or is it just noise?

Does she eventually calm down?

When she's barking like that, how do you address it?

Has she been to any obedience classes at all?

How much exercise does she get daily?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Her name is***** is is spayed. I used a crate for a while when I first got her. I think she did nip. No she doesn't calm down. Sometimes I pick her up. Sometimes I try to remove her or leash her to something. I tell her thank you and I've got it handled. I tried a vibration collar.
She has done some dog training classes.
We walk just about everyday. Sometimes 2-3times a day. She goes to doggie daycare 1-2 x a week.

Thanks for the additional informaiton.

How does she do in doggy classes?

Are these guests normally expected or do they just show up?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She does fine in the doggie classes. She plays and doesn't bark at people.
I'm having some work done on my property and she goes nuts to every one that shows up and also to guests. Especially men. I did have an electrician come when she was a puppy and she barked at him and he dived her and she screamed. It's been happening since then and getting spayed also contributed to it.

He shoved her

Do you still have your crate?

Do you have people who can help you with training at all?

(Also, I have to run out to a behavior consult, but will get right back to your question in two hours or so)

I still have a crate. Not too many people to help . I live alone.
Expert:  Lisa replied 1 year ago.

Can you estimate how much time you have to train her?

Does she have any other behavior issues?

Does she ever nip at you?

Is she on any sort of a schedule?
