We have a new Samoyed puppy, and he's a vocal little guy. I could ignore it if we weren't in an apartment, but he barks. A lot.
It's at it's worst when he sees us leave the room, the house, or wakes up at night and realizes we're not in the room. When this happens I usually just go sleep on the floor near his cage for a while.
I know we can solve the at-night problem permanently by putting him in our room, but I don't think our resident dog is ready for that.
Teaching him "hush" is sort of difficult in this case, as he's only really interested in barking when we're leaving.
So, what is the best deterrent to keep him from barking whenever we try to leave his sight?
