So, I posted yesterday about Maximus barking and whining at the door... and today I tried letting him work it out with me inside. He never did stop. He whined and barked for 3 hours! 3! I am going to try the food in the yard for dinner tonight, but I am at my wits end. I should have realized this was a bigger problem before I had the puppy, but live and learn right? I called barkbusters ( I heard they were the best) but the guy wants almost $800 bucks since I have a "pack". My issue is, Leonidas is great. He doens't need any training, Max does! I have that on hold until I get some input from you guys. Should I keep trying my own thing until something works and hope Leo doesn't pick up on the bad habits or should I call in a trainer? I found another trainer who is $150 for an hour, and I think I may only need one hour to learn how to react to him... does that sound reasonable or am I crazy? I am just so lost, and with my husband deployed I have nobody else to talk to who really cares about how my dogs behave.
