I have a 4 year old cocker spaniel, Tucker. He is a barker whenever he see something unfamiliar or large (sweeper, mop, lawnmower). I found. (Completely by accident) that if I put a cloth leash on him he quiets down immediately. I can run the sweeper or whatever and he will lay in a chair and watch me. Guess it is like a security blanket to him. Sometimes I forget to take it off of him and he just drags it around the house - doesn't seem to bother him at all. Has anyone else had anything like this happen ? My husband thinks it is because it is a Cardinal baseball leash and he (Tucker and Jim) are both hugh fans

I haven't heard of this but I'm going to try it with Jennie. She goes crazy when I use the vacuum. I wonder if he is thinking that he'll get a walk if he just sits quietly? :gig
