Personally speaking, my dog is extremely territorial and even when we're home and can do something about it, he still feels the need to wail at passerbys and just random people walking around in front of their own houses...<br><br>I can imagine what he does when we're not home to quickly give him a treatball to shut him up...<br><br>Back in Black...

To the dog, more barking = more treats.<br><br>

Eh, he's 4 years old by now- he knows the drill. Beagles are notoriously territorial, so he's going to carry on whether he thinks he's getting a reward or not. We certainly don't want him to *stop* his habit of barking if he thinks he hears a strange noise, so we usually praise him when he does. Of course, he feeds right into it and starts carrying on even MORE after we praise him. It's pretty funny actually.<br><br>FWIW, we usually give him the treatball if it's late at night and we still happen to be up visiting with friends.... I don't think he makes a correlation between that and barking, though- we give it to him at random times, and sometimes just if he's been quiet & calm for a few hours... <br><br>The only times he knows 100% that he's getting a cookie or treat is when he comes in from his last walk at night, or when he gets groomed or treated medically somehow. <br><br>Of course, more and more procedures have fallen under that heading now- apparently trimming his whiskers entitles him to a cookie. Wiping his paws when he comes in from the rain entitles him to a cookie. Cleaning his ears entitles him to a cookie. My wife will finish up, and he makes a beeline for the kitchen & sits under the cabinet that holds the cookie jar....<br><br>He's a character- I can't imagine life without him...<br><br>Back in Black...
