    I will definitely try to start that thread sometime today when I get a chance.

    I had my buddy who gave her to me rollin last night telling him the story of Bellas transition through the collars here.

    I'm in the opposite position as you slim. I want my outside mutts to be quite. No need to bring unnecessary attention to my yard, I feel it's in their best interests to be silent. I'm in a very urban environment unfortunately and while I dislike most my neighbors, I still try very hard to be a considerate neighbor. Lil Miss Geach is my house dog. She is a paranoid skitzo and barks and carries on at anything that moves outside the front of my house, car doors slamming, bikes going by, the cat down the street farting, no idea most days wtf she is barking at. She's always been a very vocal dog. She growls when I talk to her like a sigh of impatients. I don't mind it. I prefer my house dog to be that way. Let's most people think long and hard before trying anything stupid here.

    Barking here and there don't bother me too much, or if there is and actual reason to be barking. It's when they want to continuously do it for extended periods of time that gets under my skin as I'm sure it would my neighbors. If I lived in the country, which believe me, I am working on, I wouldn't give 2 shits if they barked their faces off so long as I couldn't see any of my neighbor's houses through the scope on my hunting rifle.

    Location and proximity of neighbors always play a part in what the dogs can and can't do.

    My dirt road loops off the paved road. Our land basically cuts the loop off and makes it a dead end road. No traffic. I use the second half of the loop as a path to walk the dogs. I wish I could have afforded the land behind me between me and the road. Some years ago it was bought and there are four rental mobile homes there. They are about 250 yards away, down the bottom across the creek and up the hill.

    The one elderly lady tells me at the mail box, "You must feed them at 5PM every day", I say, "Is it that loud?". And she says, "It's that loud!"
    So in turn when she needs things being elderly and all I farm my son out for free labor!. LOL.

    So I understand neighbors and distance and dogs. The last thing any of us need is the neighbor making a phone call about a barking dog(s). Because in today's climate, having a bulldog is proof enough to be charged with all the bad things in the world...., cancer, war in the middle east, terrorism and all forms of domestic violence. They all stem from bulldogs.

    You must feed them at 5pm.


    I think my neighbors would say the exact same thing.

    This place erupts at 5pm. Then it becomes a race to see how fast I can get them fed and quite again. Funny how they become so conditioned that it's almost as if they can tell time by the routine they come to expect daily. Some times I contemplate who own's who here.

    All of our neighbors dread the 5pm hour LOL. The very few neighbors I have I'm sure put in earbuds at about 515 until about 545 lol.

    Same here.

    I guess anything can be conditioned. A guy my Dad worked with got off at about 4 every day. He pulled in his yard at 4:30. He walked to his pond and three a scoop of dog food in the pond. The first few weeks it took a couple of hours for all the food to be eaten. Most had already soaked enough water to swell and separate. That evolved into fish rolling on top of the water evert day at 4:30. From there the dog food barley hit the water.

    It looked like a pirhanna feeding frenzy.

    My dogs the same. I can come out of the door and turn left to the drive way and no noise. I turn right and there is an occasional bark. Turn right with a white bucket in my hand an the dogs go apeshit.

    Food. Sure the anticipation of exercise and feeding time is part of the late afternoon/early pm flurry here, and they’ve certainly adapted to my schedule, but I think the reason also is primitive. As in the pack mobilizing for the hunt at dusk. High food drive is a beautiful thing to get a dog focused.

    Barking. My German Shepherd is protective of the house/property and her specific job is to roar at any stranger/strange vehicle approaching - 24/7 or until I tell her to stop. My neighbors actually like this fee of charge alarm service. The pit bull is not so vocal but fires off a nice throaty bark when anyone gets too close to the house. Fit, purpose bred dogs posted at the doors and windows help the goblins re-think their purpose in life.

    Well said, close to thirty posts and no one's mom is wearing combat boots. LOL

    I agree with the post above. Where we live most of my can bark whenever. I have learned to tell when it is a person or an animal passing by. The animal gets a 3/4 "if I could only get off this chain and out of this fence" and people get " an all out roar like it is some sort of foreign invasion".

    Facts.. my older two know when it's time for certain things to happen. Trin gets up on the window everyday at 3:15 like clockwork waiting on my daughter to get home. Broly starts bugging me everyday to go hit the spring pole at exactly 2:00, like clockwork.

    Took this one of her today. She's really a class 5 clinger. The shit annoys the hell out of me. She lives in that correction collar since she don't listen for shit and is always doing something she shouldn't be doing. I'm redoing my yard currently so she's been in my house for the last 2 weeks while I expand a little. I can only handle her for about half hour incriments before I want to ring her bell. Lol. She reminds me of the retarded hyena in the lion king. :D Her chain won't get in the ground fast enough. Some dogs are just better suited for the outdoor lifestyle. Bella is definitely one of them. Lol

    She looks annoying! I know that look!!! I call that the "pretty please" look. I had a dog that you would damn near trip over wit every step, stuuuuuupid clingy. He was like a shadow, quiet as one too. He was about 2 before I heard him bark. Head low, ears back, always side eyeing me like I did him wrong.

    Its been a min since I've posted in here but this is a great thread. My hounds get fed around 8:30 pm and my neighbors know my feeding schedule as well. AGK I'm in a pretty urban environment as well so my hounds have to keep the noise down as much as possible and I've had a lot of success using these bark collars http://www.hitecpet.com/bark-terminator-3.html.

    Thanks, I may just give one a try. I'm always looking for the next best thing. Mine get used and abused pretty quickly. I think if I made one for bulldogs that could last while being on a dog that runs a chain constantly I'd make a fortune. Going in and out of the dog houses beats the collars up pretty bad too.

    I tried a collar once that I couldn't use because I found that the sound of the chain/swivel etc smacking a food or water bucket would make the collar activate, way too sensitive..,
