How can I encourage Ryder to STOP barking excessively at my parents' house? Especially at Hank, a Beagle/Terrier mix. They will play, but only on Hank's terms. But when not playing, it's either BARK, BARK, BARK, BARK in Hank's face or he won't simply leave Hank alone... so Hank growls and snaps at Ryder to quit it, but it's back to that again too. But all it's done is causing Ryder wanting to play more. What is the problem here? How can I curb his barking to NONE of it or at least less of it? I had him at my parents' house all weekend due to family stuff and Mike was away for work stuff. So I needed to bring Ryder with me. He barked the entire weekend, most of it. Help please? My mom would like to help me work on this issue but I feel that it should be ME to work with Ryder, not her also.
