Fence line fiascos, many dogs can be very well-behaved in the home, but as soon as they interact with a person or animal at the fence it’s a whole nother story.
Nathan Lowe, The Indy Dog Whisperer, joined us Tuesday on “Life.Style.Live!” to share a few tips to help you lay the law when it comes to your dog’s fenceline behavior.
1. Identify the Bark
- “Machine gun barking” is for threats only
- “Shotgun barking” is okay almost anytime
2. Understand What Your Dog is Doing
- Saying, “You’re a threat to what I claim here”
- Reserving the right to chase off what approaches
- Asserting authority/decision-making power
3. Take Charge of the Fence Line Scenario
- Give a sharp verbal “bark” warning
- Put fence to your back and “charge” towards dog
- Move to a neutral spot and give verbal warnings
