Barking can be a big issue, especially for those living in apartments. There are several options you can take to control this problem. Since it would take several pages to type all your options (and how to train them), I recommend finding a good, positive reinforcement trainer in your area. I think the DDEAF.com page has some good advice on how to find a good trainer. It would serve you best to seek help from a professional for this problem. Do not, however, get a shock collar for the issue. Depending on why the dog is barking, the shock collar can be the worst thing you can do. A good professional will be able to give you advice based on the reason behind the barking.

Good luck,
