What do you think?
I mentioned before that Monty and Milo deteste squeaky toys...i also mentioned that Monty had a barking problem and that we had to do something about it...well its gotten MUCH better im thankful. to say but now and then he starts up.
i was talkin 2 a friend and they thought that when monty barked (excessively) i should squeak the squeaky toy once sort of as a punishment? so that he will soon learn that when he barks excessively he will hear a squeak...what do you guys think of this? honestly to me it sounds really mean and im not sure i really want to do it...but i tried it once..and he stopped barking straight away and did not at all that whole day........i havent done it again because im not sure if its right to do that...im all for the positive reinforcement methods and that just seems a bit mean to me.......i could just b over-reacting..i mean it is just one squeak....do you think i should do this?..thanks in advance
