Hi Have a 5 month old border collie puppy who barks at certain noises- coughing /sneezing even when i stir my tea or get cutlery out of the draw- she starts to bark/jump up and down and scratch- sh e will go to one specific area in the house- if i block this area off she will start on living carpet- i originally thought this was due to having a house rabbit- but they were kept apart and i moved my rabbit upstairs - behaviour has been like this preety much since bringing her home 9 weeks ago. have tried different commands- removing her to cage/ myself leaving the room but nothing seems to work. attending training classess but trainer can not offer a solution.have spoken to my vet who feels this is a behavior problem and i should consider referal to behavioarist but there is a cost of approx £350 just for consultation h am at a loss as what to do as i carnt keep stirring my tea with a plastic spoon !! hOPING THAT THERE ARE DOG OWNWERS ON THIS SITE THAT CAN ADVISE.
