Barking at nothing?

Recommended Posts

Anyone on here ever entered a new terrier to ground and found it baying at nothing while going back and forth from a entrance?

There was the usual musty fox smell above ground. Didn't have a experience dog to prove of anything was there or not

Early days but don't sound to promising bad trait to have if he keeps that up. If something was at home he may just need more time not knowing what to do to find him but if it was vacant a bad trait imo barking at nothing.

did you encourage the dog ? might just be an excited response leave him a few days and try the same place again on his own in a nice quiet manner , might not be ready ,

Aye as said the last thing you should be doing is encouraging it , it will just get worse just drop him and wait watching to see what he does

From what I’ve seen in the past, a dog that bays at nothing, either has been over encouraged into empty holes or is shit scared of it’s own shadow.

Thanks for a straight answer rabbit hunter

Same things as my bitch by sounds of it. She self entered around that age but I kept her back till she got bit older. Hopefully she'll come good in the end

I ain’t the smartest man here what is self entering how is it different from not self entering?

Taking a dog out with the intension or entering it, usually some where you know am when you have a god idea the youngster is ready, as opposed to a youngster just slipping to ground one day whilst out on a walk or summat 😁👍
