Re: Revenge on Barking Dogs
I run my fan because of tinnitus (constant, unstopping ringing in my ears). The sound has the added benefit of blocking out the neighborhood dogs.
Around here, someone can get a dog started four blocks away, and the dogs that are near him start barking, then the next group starts, and it just sort of flows over in a wave with every dog in the neighborhood barking.
My neighbor came up with a great fix for his boxer. He throws him a frozen hot dog. This keeps the dog busy chewing on the hot dog for a while, and the barking stops instantly.
To stop my dog barking I need only open the door and look at him. He stops instantly unless there is something really wrong.
Real treasures give you hugs.
The rest is just stuff.
