Clever way to quiet barking
Every time you let Baxter out, he gets hyper and barks nonstop. Train
him to keep calm in the yard by creating a scent trail: Before letting
him out, go outside and drop training treats every few feet. The next
day, leave more distance between the treats so he has to work harder to
follow the scent. Repeat for a few days-he'll get used to focusing on
putting his nose to work as soon as he goes out. Once he stops barking
upon leaving the house, you can cut back on the treats.
