This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise

My dog is a barker. She barks at people she knows, she barks to say hi, she barks at everyone who passes the house, she barks at the other dogs (herding style) at the park... she really barks a lot.rnrnI have tried positive reinforcement, a citronella collar, crate training, firm response when she's barking (she responds to this and knows its bad, but a few minutes later...). She talks a lot, and I don't know what to do. I take her and her Border Collie brother to the parks lots and lots and wear them out. It is not boredom and it is not anxiety. She just talks a lot!rnrnHelp!

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger

Pro is a wonderful dog 99% of the time, especially with kids. But there have been 4 or5 incidents where he went after my adult son, who actually owns him. This last time he got a hold of his foot and would not let go. It was very scary. There have always been triggers, but none that should have triggered that kind of reaction. We love this dog but this issue has to be addressed. What kind of hope is there for curing this problem?

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger

Our dog has always lunged at his food in the bowl. At 13 weeks of age, we got him a slow down bowl and he starting growling. He pulled him away from the bowl by the scruff and told him no. He turned vicious and very focused on his food. As soon as the food was gone, he was back to our lovable puppy. We started hand feeding him and eventually put our hand closer to his regular bowl and then let him eat out of the regular bowl (at 15.5 weeks). This worked for a couple of days and tonight he started growling again using the regular bowl. When I touched him he turned his head and snapped at me. What can we do to curb this behavior now before he gets much older and it becomes constant?
