Default Dog Training

Got a 10 month old Labrador. She barks for everything she wants BUT does not
bark to be let out to do big-jobs. Tried feeding later and this works most
times. Three feeds a day 6am, 12noon and now 8pm. She barks to go out for a
wee.
Had two Labs before this one and they would both let me know they wanted to
go.
Any ideas?
TIA

Default Dog Training

The really best place to bring this up is on the Behavior group. More
knowledgeable folks post there (along with some beginners).... But
since I'm here and you asked the question....

At 10 months, you can definitely switch to 2 feeds a day..... AM and
evening. It's quite probable that it's that noon feed that's keeping
her from developing a more predictable schedule.

It is quite possible to teach your young rascal to alert you to potty
needs by ringing a bell or cluster of bells. You hang them on or beside
the door (put a protective metal or plastic plate behind them if she
uses her foot to ring them). I recommend hanging them at NOSE height.
Assist her to ring the bells with her nose before you take or send her
out..... every time, until she starts reliably doing it herself. The
downside of this is that she is liable to start ringing the bell every
time she decides she wants to go out to chase a bird, or play, as well
as when she needs to "go". It helps to stay out (yeh, it's winter here,
too) to watch to be certain that she takes care of nature's call before
coming back inside.
