My Awesome Mini Aussie!

She is very beautiful and lovable. She is only 4 months old now and still in the puppy mode... occasional poop/pee in the house, loves to chew, and barks when we are asleep. I really want to get her out of that habit, because of the neighbors... but I don't really know what to do to get her to stop barking.
We tried the ignoring approach, but it takes her over 3 minutes to stop barking that way. We usually just pick her up and put her in bed with us. But she is very intelligent and can sit, shake both paws and is ONLY 4 MONTHS. Did I say that yet??? She'll be doing the laundry soon enough!
