This is all very new I would think and she's probably still a bit anxious about her surroundings.

When you are home with her, you might try working on "watch" with her? I think restricting visual access when you aren't there might help a lot. I've seen those blog posts where people put those fuzzy window coverins on the window that blur stuff and it really calms the dog.

Can you explain your situation please? On 250 acres how is she seeing other dogs and how is her barking effecting anyone? Are you in a central house shared with others but surrounded by acreage?

Alison, it is one house but broken into 3 units. Basia and I are on the top floor and so is the other tenant and her dog, while the owners live on the bottom floor. The owner is also self employed and works from home so he is there all day. I guess my neighbor must be home during the day as well if she's taking her dog out. She takes him out into the front of the house to do his business which is in direct view from the only 2 windows basia has access to.

I did make 3 strategic changes that seem to work. (1) Turned on the radio (2) blocked the window (3) put her breakfast down on the floor and immediately scurried out without saying a word.

He told me she barked twice but very briefly. I asked him to tell me if it ever is a nuisance for him and so far so good. Fingers crossed. Thanks for the suggestions and words of encouragement smile

Sounds very promising - glad things are better - hoping things stay okay and get even better.

OK! Hope the good work continues. Maybe you could talk the other tenant into a less obvious "toilet"?
