TriAya - Crating isn't a correction ... done right, it's actually a reward. I GET TO SLEEP IN MY HAPPY WARM COSY SNUGGLY SPECIAL ONLY-ME PLACE!!!

So true!

Plus, dogs are territorial. The alpha dog controls the territory. Maybe there's some confusion over who's in charge of the den when night time comes. (I'm an amateur when it comes to dog training. Just thinking out loud here - that's what CoJ is for, right? )

Aarondb4 - 

Do your dogs roam at night or do you keep them in a cage? If not you might try putting him in a cage in a dark room and even add a blanket over the cage to create a cave for him at night. He shouldn't have much to bark at in that situation. 

x2

What breed/mix of dog is it?

He was labeled an Australian Cattle Dog mix...However, we are pretty sure he has some Pit in him, due to his coloring and his body frame. Not being too familiar with personality traits of pits...I would say he leans more toward cattle dog. He is a herder. We adopted him when he was about 3 years old, from the story we heard some neighbors found him and we're taking turns "caring" for him, but when the weather got colder they took him to the shelter.

I'm not sure that getting a crate is practical (or maybe it's just not something I want to do)...due to the fact that our other dog isn't really a barker, but the little dog can set him off. I also don't see the need to crate both of them...but I don't think it would be right to crate one of them.

Yeah as Yanti said, dogs like crates, it is not a punishment.

So you can do something the dog would like and allow you to sleep or you can shock the dog. No brainer to me.

As long as it's not seen as a punishment. If you crate them when they're in trouble, that becomes a place they go when they're in trouble. Just make it their safe little corner fo the world and they will love it.

rnner66 - 2013-05-05 2:21 AM We were looking at the citronella collar last week but were balking about the cost of the thing. The sales woman at Petco showed us a can of compressed air ($10) that has worked like a charm. It's like the compressed air you buy for your computer, but more of a blast. When they bark, you spray it, not at them, just near them. It startles (distracts) them and they quit. In less than 2 days, all I had to do was bring it with me. If they saw that I had it, they were ANGELS. Less than a week later, the barking has nearly ceased and I dont even have to carry it anymore. It's fabulous! Way better than spending $100 if you don't have to.

Even cheaper, put about 20 pennies in an aluminum can.  Whenever there's a behavior you don't like, shake the can.

Cured our dog's problem barking in about 3 shakes.  Seriously, she almost never barked in the house again.

I have a bark collar for my Beagle. He's not so bad but every once in a while he needs it. The battery has been dead for the past 6 months at least, but he doesn't know that Wink

A life is a life. Treat it equally! Well, unless its an ant or Mosquito.
