We have twin boy Corgi puppies born in February this year. We have tried sleeping them outside but they bark incessantly - at cars passing by our house, at cats in our yard or adjoining yards, at neighbor's dogs. Given the hot summer, I've been sleeping them inside our house in the laundry room. They are chewing the doorjambs now.

How do I handle the barking at night? Am thinking they could sleep in their crate with a towel covering it on the back patio? Any other suggestions?

  • what do you do with them over the day? I would assume that tired puppies would sleep at night. How is the place shaped, where they sleep? Have they something to hide inside? Maybe they feel not save and bark scary things away... Aug 19, 2021 at 8:22

  • We crated the dogs separately, with crate covers on each. They still bark at times triggered by vehicles passing, cats, dogs in other yards etc. Aug 23, 2021 at 13:27
  • So the dogs are crated the whole day? Aug 24, 2021 at 4:39

    We crate the dogs only at bedtime and they are free to run throughout the day. Aug 25, 2021 at 2:35
