How about bark collars?

All it took was a few uses and she stopped.
this would be bad, one dogs barking would set off the others collar

We did group dog training. The trainer kept a squirt bottle full of water with her at all times. If a dog barked, she squirted it. Each class had less barking.

Thanks for everybody's help. It is so frustrating. We do have a shock collar for her (and she is stubborn enough to ignore it at times) but I am not comfortable with the ones that you leave on and they shock automatically when they bark. I am scared it could malfunction, etc. I am starting the spray bottle and I might try the citronella collar too. I was hoping some had had luck with the expensive anti bark machines that always get bad reviews but I see not one poster did.

Does there seem to be something she is trying to tell you by barking? Maybe if you can figure out why she's barking you can find a way to stop it. My basset usually barks when he feels he is being ignored and he wants attention. He won't stop until he gets attention.

I don't know if traditional methods to stop barking would work for you. Bassets just seem to have a mind of their own and don't respond like other dogs. They are really wonderful dogs, even with their quirks. I hope you did a solution.

I have a Corgi who barks at everything. We have a soup can of pennies that we shake when he starts barking and won't listen to us command "NO BARK". Shaking the pennies works probably 80% of the time. He will stop barking. Once I have his attention, I command him to sit, stay and shut up.

I wish I could say that was what her issue is. We have had 3 bassets and she will be the last. I know this is a stubborn breed but she is unbelievable. As the vet said, she's just not a very good dog. I think she's missing a few screws in her cute little head personally. She has some other issues and truthfully, I would love to rehome her but I don't think anyone else would tolerate her.

She barks because the neighbors are outside (the same exact people since she came to us), because the kids are playing across the street, because the trash pick up comes by, because the dog down the street is barking, you name it. And it takes a while for her to quit. I am really hoping we find a solution.

Aww. That's a tough situation. I know your husband doesn't want to rehome her, but you guys may not have a choice if you get complaints at the new apartment. Maybe you can explain to him that it is better to look for a new home for her now while you have time and can search for a good home, versus when you are facing eviction at the new apartment and have to give her to the first person who will take her, or worse, a shelter.

I want to be positive and say good job for working on this problem now before you move. I would keep looking for a good qualified trainer. Shock collars when used properly can do wonders. The only issues I ever saw from them where from people who put them on and never checked them again,( mainly outdoor only dogs) after tightening over months they would embed in the skin. I can bet you would not be the type to put it on and ever check it again it sounds like you have some tough choices. Whatever you decide good luck!!

That happens with kind of kind of collar if they are not loosened or given new collars as the dog grows.

a couple of things I had beagles! they were loud! 1 thing that worked great to use when I was home was to shake a can with marbles, coins etc in it they were destracted by the noise and stopped! we also had to move to a apartment and was worried! I had the dogs stay in the room farest away from " triggers' and got them thunder shirts to wear when I was gone for more that a quick trip to store! worked I also left a tv or radio on at all times!!

Yes that was my point that used properly they can be a useful tool. The OP seems nervous to try one
