Well my neighbor called for the first time last night to have us shut our dogs up. I figure we should work something out so they quit barking at night. They usually bark off and on at night but it was hours strait last night. They each get to play in the yard half the day and then get switched, one in the 10x10 kennel and the other out in the shock fence. We have to switch them out because they play rough together and will chew the $100 shock collars off each other and break them. During the day they will bark at each other and at the neighbors going by and other dogs passing through. It isn't a big deal because we are the only ones home and they alert us if something isn't right. At night they both get locked into the 10x10 kennel together. They usually bark for awhile in the middle of the night but usually everybodies dogs are barking and they settle down when everyone elses dogs shut up. With all the crickets and frogs they have been going berserk the last few nights barking for a long time for no reason. They play and move their crates all over the kennel and make a mess in there. Sometimes during the day I have enough and will tell them to be quiet (usually they don't react) and if they don't I go and put them in time out in their crate for a few minutes. Usually they are better after that but will still want to bark and will start up again in 10 minutes. So this needs to stop now that the neighbor has complained. Maybe they are bored at night? I try giving them toys but they know how to shred them to efficiently and they are gone in 5 minutes tops. I give them milk jugs and they shred them to dollar sizes prices all over the yard. Right now they just have a bucket of water, a tennis ball, and 2 crates in their kennel. Should I get them some bones maybe? I also thought of maybe getting a training shot collar but I don't really want to use that or spend to much now? Any advice is welcome they are 2 yrs old brother and sister lab mixes (heavy on the lab). They are healthy weight and get fed 2xs a day and are trained to sit, down, shake, stay, and a couple cute tricks ( I can't seem to teach come to them).
