Leaving Home

April 1, 2009 | By Stephanie | 5 comments

I am new to Zootoo and love it so far...
I have an issue when I leave the apartment anytime during the day my two poms love to bark and I can't break them of it for anything. I am pretty sure the neighbors are sick of it. Can anyone give me some advice on what to do with them to help them from barking every time I leave home.
Also the female barks at every little thing, I used to use a squirt bottle with water in it and it used to work but know she just ignores it how can I get her not to bark at every little noise she hears? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

Thank you so much for the help on this. I am going to try the bike horn and then the Dazer II.
The neighbor told me that they bark at people outside or sirens. Which they say doesn't bother them so that they are alert when someone is outside the area.
It just makes me a little upset or aggitated when she does it when I am home and when it is over the littlest tiny things. The male isn't so bad unless he senses something outside is the only time I hear him bark.

Do your poms bark while you are gone? Mine barks when we or anybody leaves and then gets on back of couch and watches out window till we return. I checked with neighbors and they say she doesn't bark while we are away. We tried the dazer, the pennies in a can, the water, and they all worked for awhile and then she ignored them.
