I can't get Bella to stop barking. She doesn't bark at me, but she will bark at anything and everything if I am home. I have a roommate and she says when I'm not home she's fine and doesn't bark at anyone that comes by. It seems to be getting worse with time and I'm not sure how to make it stop. I've tried the Dog Whisperer method of the "sush", but that just stops her for that one second. I'm willing to pay for an in home trainer. Any suggestions?

It seems like she has taken on the role of "protector" for you
and this isn't a good position for an owner to be in
What you need to do is take charge and be HER protector
and the barking will lessen automatically
How you do that is in subtle ways
You go through a door first ... when someone comes into the house
she is behind you
and you don't let anyone in Until she stops barking
That you can work on with a volunteer
also take her out more so she experiences new things and sounds with you around
so that they aren't that scarey for her
