You guys all had such great comments and gave such great ideas when I posted a discussion about how to help keep my dog calm during a storm I thought you would be able to help with something even more important that will be happening soon. Right now I live in the country and whenever someone comes to the house or goes by the house the dog barks to alert me that something or someone is there that isn't supposed to be there. He's a great watchdog. But in a few weeks I will be moving to an apartment in town with him that is the apartment above the landlord. The problem is, what can I do to quiet my dog when he starts to bark that will be very effective? The apartment is right by a school so there will be a lot of people walking by all the time, and until the dog gets used to that, because it will all be brand new to him, I need for him to listen when I tell him to be quiet or the landlords will get upset. I don't want anything to cause me to get into trouble or make them say I have to get rid of the dog. Like I said I know that in time he will adjust, but in the meantime I need an effective way to teach him to be quiet when people go by and until he learns I need him to listen to me when I tell him to be quiet. You guys were so great with the other discussion and I need your help once more with this. You have no idea how much I will appreciate any and all idea that I could try and would help me and the dog out. Thanks so much.~D
