I don't think whispering is called for...

As for hating small dogs, I think all of us can agree, that thing in your first post is not a dog, it'* a well-groomed Koosh ball.

Lend him to me for a couple days, my cats will cure him of barking. Probably of making any sudden movements without permission, as well.

Sorry, but I totally disagree, if I wanted a big dog, then I might as well have gotten a horse.

Now if I may ask a simple question, when did this thread change from helping solve a dog barking problem to picking on helpless small dogs?

Call it prejudice, or call it being bitten by a @%#&ing Chihuauhua(sp?) when I was six, but I just can't stand small dogs. Anything bigger than a Cocker Spaniel I get along with great.

One problem with small dogs is that they are bred almost entirely for appearance, so they don't get the behavioral traits that large dogs usually have bred into them.
If a German Sheperd or a Border Collie couldn't be trained, they wouldn't be bred.

This thread has gotten way off topic. And you probably called it correctly.

Didn't mean to put you off.
Small dogs bark. If they don't respond to traditional training, there isn't really a lot you can do.
I assume putting it outside is out of the question? What about a basement? Or a room at the back of the house?
And I still say it'* a well-groomed Koosh ball...

I going to take a wild guess and say that you don't have a dog?
Not while I live in the city...
My last two dogs were a Dalmation and a Husky. The Dalmation being the smartest dog I've ever had, easily beating out even German Shepards. But the trouble was that after I got married, he thought he was still second in command and nipped the kids a few times when they wouldn't listen to him , so I gave him to someone with a farm where he had 'companions' and room to run.
