We've had a lot of trouble with barking - next door have a very yappy Westie who barks every time he's outside, which his owners think is perfectly OK. Herbie has picked up this bad habit and they have a barking match making a terrible racket - and more recently Robbie has learned to join in their barking-fest. Both my boys are very good at coming when called when we practice inside, but Herbs is quite deaf when he hears Buster. I've got Robbie to return to me if I catch him in time before he runs out (they have a doggie door) and he gets a treat for this. But tonight he decided that he could come back to me for his reward and then scoot off outside to join the fun. Devious little devil...
