hello all, i have two beagle boys both the age of 2, jack and copper. jack is basically mute, doesn’t bark unless he’s mad (which is very rare). he’s healthy so i’m not too concerned. my concern is copper. he barks like no other. if he hears a noise, bark. someone drops something, bark. wants food, bark. the worst is being on a leash outside. if he sees a person or dog, he will howl like there’s no tomorrow. now we do use a muzzle that can be connected to his harness. and he sometimes will be fine with it and won’t care about anyone around him. but most days it’s obnoxious. we’ve received several complaints, and have also gotten police called about us “abusing” our boys because they sound like they’re being hurt. obviously the police came in and was like they’re clearly beagles, nothing seems to be wrong here. however it has caused a lot of anxiety. we are currently apartment living. which they get their excersise like walks. most days they don’t care to walk though and just want to go in. Now sorry for the long post, but I am looking for some help on how to calm the barking, any techniques are useful. we used treats outdoors when he’d bark and he’d obey and quiet. but it just eventually stopped working. i do understand that he’s a beagle and he’s being territorial but there’s got to be a way for him to know when to not right?? and training is not an option because near me is so expensive and if there’s a way i can personally train him without having to send him somewhere, that would be awesome. ANY TIPS ARE APPRECIATED!
