Personal Thoughts from Beagle Owners: "He barks when the landscapers come into or near our yard with a weed-eater or leaf blower. We tell him to be quiet, then say "good quiet" and give him a treat. He stops right away and waits for the next treat."
"Birds, she hates birds and our neighbors feed the local birds and she will bark for over half an hour until they leave. Nothing has worked, ignoring her drives the neighbors mad, calling her up stairs and settling her keeps her quiet but then when I leave she will go back down and bark, telling her no is a stern voice doesn't work.
She hasn't been receiving much exercise but that is only because she was spayed a week ago and we don't want to hurt her stitches in any way."
"Every evening at promptly 6 PM, he calls out to his invisible pack, waits for 5 mins and then calms down and is quiet the rest of then night."
