I don't see many replies to this, I guess none of us have figured it out either!!! I say shhhhh!! and try to distract them,, I also absolutely never reward them if they bark. And try to reward them at time when they are quiet.. If we are eating and they bark, we ignore them as long as possible then put them outside or in another room.. If one barks and one doesn't we treat the quiet one and hope the other catches on.

I have heard of people using bark collars, but I don't like them. And I have heard bassets are smart enough to know they can bark when the collar is off.

Bark collar works by being activated by the barking.......when they are quiet it doesn't do anything, when when they bark it does it's job.

Rossi barks when we ignore him and don't give him attention. We say quiet once in a sharp manner and when he stops, we then reward him.

Does the bark collar work?? We have 7 Bassets , 6 of them never make a sound until it's time to eat or they are after a rabbit ,coon ,cat or some other animal. Our big male (Beaureguard) will not shut up , i think he barks just to annoy people. We dont have many close neighbors but the other day someone came over and said they wished the other 6 would eat him so he would shut up. My wife and I really like him but we have to shut him up before somebody hurts him.

I can't vouch first hand on other brands, but Tri-Tronics and SportDog brands work well.

If I have one that won't be quiet and gets all worked up barking, all I have to do now is put a dummy collar on and they shut up real quick.
