Why is my dog barking so much?
Hi, I was just wondering if you could advise me about my 2-year-old cocker spaniel, who has recently begun barking at strangers and other dogs while we're on our daily walks. At first, I thought she was just doing this to protect me, but tonight she lunged toward a strange dog which was very excited and bouncing around.
I always have her on the lead when other dogs are around, so thankfully, they were both okay. I am unsure how to correct this behaviour, though, as I do not want any more incidents like this to happen, as I found it quite upsetting.
Do you have any ideas on how to sort this out?
