Charlie doesn't bark outside. He runs to the fence if anyone or dog or truck parks or walks past. He has his ball in his mouth and shakes his head violently. But no barking.
Inside he goes into watch dog mode and barks at everything. Totally bizarre.
There are 2 Chihuahua next door. The female is the dog alarm for Charlie. He let's her bark at stuff then runs over to check it out.
Her male companion rarely barks at all.
The property behind us has a huge dog that is barking less... though it barked a lot when first moved in. He barks at me & Charlie
Down hill is Pig an old bull dog. He doesn't bark at all.
There were a lot of strays but most are gone now. People complained.
There are a few dogs around on chains in yards. Some barking...not a lot.
I can hear when walking to mailbox. They can see me if out in yard. But none run free so some barking but not like the past few years.
