My parents have five dogs, four of which are yorkies or yorkie/terrier mixes - NOTORIOUS yapper breeds. And YAP THEY DO. We have a fenced in yard because they don't want to walk five dogs, they have free access to go outside as the need to play/potty/etc. However, this also means constant BARKING.
This doesn't bother me as much, I understand they're dogs. But it's hours of barking. They don't stop. And then my parents start screaming at them to come inside, but the dogs were never taught what "COME INSIDE RIGHT NOW" means. The screaming bothers me more than the dogs.
Anyway to stop the dogs constant need to go outside and bark?
A few things:
NO, we will not be keeping them inside all day. We will not "only let them out when they need to;" with a dog pack of five, thats every ten minutes. We will be keeping their access to the backyard free, so don't tell us "limit outside access" or "keep them inside." it will be ignored.
NO, we will NOT use shock collars.
