How to stop my pyr from barking at the "herd" he should be guarding?
I just adopted a 3 year old great pyrenees from a rescue. She's a fantastic new member of the family. We have several horses and a flock of chickens. She loves to run up to the fence to see the chickens scatter. She also loves to bark at the horses. If she sees them out the window walking in the pasture or if she comes outside and sees them, she goes into a barking frenzy. I'd like her to know that they're part of the family and not something she should be barking at. Will she grow out of it as she gets more used to them (it's day 4 with us)?
On a related note, as soon as the sun goes down, she wants to be outside and barks nonstop until we put her to bed. Is there something we can do about this or just learn to love it?
