Gypsy the JRT "New" Excessive Barking Trouble

by Theresa

I have had Jacks for years and have been challenged with a persistent problem. My 10 yr old female Gypsy has decided she doesn't like doors closed, especially one particular bathroom, me in the computer or me on the phone. This has only gotten worse and she just won't stop. I have tried marbles in a can, tried speaking calmly to her, raised my voice, distraction, nothing seems to work. I have no idea why this has gotten so bad, I keep thinking maybe she is becoming senile? But SHE knows why she is barking. Please let me know if anyone had heard of this problem, as specific to mine as possible? Any suggestions to stop her? Thanks! ~Theresa

Spray Bottle?

Have you tried a spray bottle? My jack doesn't like to be wet unless in the bath or swimming. It also scares him too.

My goodness Theresa. Did Gypsy just develop this behavior or has it been going on a long time?

I'll wait for your answer.
