Default Happy Barking...too much of a Good Thing..

Ok, Ester has finally gotten the separation anxiety under control, the peeing and barking are pretty much gone....but now she is HAPPY. When I get up she starts to happy dance and BaWoo....and it goes on....and on. When she gets up from a nap and sees me she dances & BaWoos....and it goes on and on. She is elderly, pretty deaf and doesn't see well, so it is hard to correct her. I tap her on the nose and get close and say "NO". The other part of this is that my hubby is happy she is happy and BaWoo's too ....I am thinking squirt gun there! Love having her so happy, but how do I regain some quiet..ideas?

there is your problem reinforced behavior. As Miriam will concur I taught Eowyn to whine in like five minutes.

So I should ask Miriam how she broke you of that habit? She is so sweet it is hard to reprimand her....hubby is much easier....where did I put that squirt gun.....
