LOL, to a very vocal dog, ignoring is not going to do anything to stop them barking.

I find the easiest way is to first teach the dog to bark on command. Then teach them an "enough" command to go along with it. It works very well for me.

Yup, the truth is one technique does not work for every dog. I am glad you have found the "enough" command to be useful. That is very similar to what I am trying to describe in the post.

So if my dogs bark at me while we are in the ring, they are lacking in training and don't trust or respect me? I always thought it was because she was a high drive herding dog ....

Instead of yelling at my dog, I hold a treat up to his nose. He has to stop barking in order to sniff the treat. I say "hush" and give him the treat.

No, but if your dog is demand-barking or barking for attention, it would work. It all depends on what he's barking at.

Isn't that pretty much exactly what the OP said?

I wish that worked with Charlie. Barking and sniffing are two activities he can do simultaneously with almost everything else (including eat his dinner).

The only thing I have seen him do where barking is incompatible is drinking. And that's because he plunges his head totally underwater. But then I can't reinforce it because his ears are underwater too.

He's one of those dogs where barking is a rewarding activity by itself. I don't think there is a way to control it with him, aside from crating him when he gets too wound up until he settles down again.

So...you present a treat while he's barking? And this teaches him what exactly?

I generally find that sticking my head out the back door and bellowing "Shuddup" works well. LOL!

With four herding dogs...living on 16 acres so we're out of earshot for the neighbors works well. They can bark all they want.
