Yeah me too.
My pup is very vocal. In the house and kennel, she has to wear a bark collar. She is just getting to a point where she will sit in her kennel and not bark, with a "quite" command. She is 17 months old. I was really worried when duck season started she would be a whiner in the blind and she was at first, but I would give her a "quite" with a nic and that worked. I passed on a lot of ducks this season, ringers and spoonies mainly, and they would land in the spread, she would go crazy, I give her a "quite" and a nic, that was the best thing for her, to make her sit and be quite and watch ducks swim in the spread.
Just yesterday, I was driving by a local city pond loaded with blue bills, I got out to check them out, Tara was going crazy, that is something we are going to do this off season, check out some local ponds, and I'm going to make her sit, be quite, and watch the ducks.
