if dogs bark continuously they can develop hoarsness like what humans can, it usually goes away within time and resting the voicebox, but you try telling the dog its gotta be quiet lol

Yes, CJ's voice got so bad from barking at Max, etc. We had to try to calm her down when she got excited. It took a bit, but her voice finally went back to normal.

If it seems to be bothering Frodo you can give him a little warm honey - just a half teaspoon or so since he's a littler guy. It will soothe his throat a bit. If his throat is hurting he'll be whining more, which exacerbates the problem. Trying to keep him calmer for a few days will help give it a rest. Notice I said "TRY!"

I've heard people say the barking collars actually made their dogs worse.

Maybe it's time to change tactics on the barking inhibition since he's learned to associate being behind a closed door and away from you with punishement. He's thinking he's being punished now when you go away and close the door behind you. Sometimes we have to think up different ways to deal with behaviour modification.

When he bites, try just ignoring him. Just refuse to acknowledge him until he stops. And when you leave for school, or anywhere for that matter, have a special toy - like the ubiquitious stuffed Kong or a puzzle ball - that he really likes all ready to give to him. Get him started playing with it, then just go on without making a big fuss. It would probably be a good idea to have at least three different toys that you alternate so that he doesn't associate one toy with being left behind.

Anyone else have any ideas that might help?

Oh, forgot . . . you can give him the honey either way, but the less diluted it is the better it will ease his throat. You shouldn't have any problems getting him to eat it; they typically LOVE honey. If you have some raw honey it's even better - for both of you!

Yeah, we're kind of funny that way, aren't we! LOL! And you're as bad as the rest of us - that's one of the reasons we've missed you while you've been off building a website!

Now, why isn't that website line in your signature, hmmm?

Gell -- what kind of dog is he? He's a puppy and biting you? Is it an aggressive bite? Is he an adult dog? Feel his lymphnodes in his throat and neck to see if they're enlarged. That causes pressure on his larnyx and vocal cords and could be a sign of sickness (I hope not!). My Eli's voice got very hoarse when he tried to bark -- he had lymphoma. I don't want to alarm you, but better of checking for it just in case...
