Barking At One Family Member
We just rescued an Australian Shepherd. Before bringing her home, my fiance and I visited her at the Humane Society everyday for a week to spend a few hours with her outside. During this time she never barked once. She was very friendly and eager to approach and be petted by strangers walking by.
We brought her home yesterday. We have two other female roommates and one male roommate. She is fine with the girls though she prefers to follow me or my fiance. The problem is she sometimes barks at our male roommate. She is usually ok when he is in the room. She is wary of him but doesn't bark. When he starts to leave the room she jumps up after him and starts barking at him. We can't figure out why and would like some tips on how to train her out of this behavior.
