I've read that dogs can hear things miles away. Maybe it's a car as someone mentioned or a train or even an animal outside. Or it could be dreaming. Leila sometimes does it in her sleep. If she falls asleep and I go to put her in bed, she will even growl at me with her eyes closed. I think she doesn't like her beauty sleep being disturbed, LOL!

Louie reacts to sounds from the TV, if a doorbell rings or someone makes a knocking sound he assumes someone is at the door. We also have some people down the street that tend to leave their dogs out barking constantly. Of course when another dog barks Louie wants to answer with a bark back. I am really getting annoyed with the people down the street as their two dogs seem to bark all day and most of the evening. Thankfully they are not real close as I can imagine the people closer must hate those dogs and all the barking. They are large dogs and bark at everything, cars, people, other animals and answering any other barks they hear. I really don't know how closer neighbors have not called the police because of all the barking. The worst part is they are tied up in the front yard where they can see everyone that does anything up and down the street. I just don't get why people would have dogs only to have them tied up outside for so many hours a day. I am not even sure if they bring them in at some point at night or if the dogs just finally go to sleep. I am very close to calling someone myself, it just hasn't gotten cold enough for that type of dog for anyone to take it seriously yet.

Well, the growling continues. Whether she is in the bed or the crate, she's growling. Last night, at 2am, she woke up barking (in her crate). I took her to potty and then let her get in the bed. I had the windows open and she heard the train go by and growled...then she heard a cat outside and growled. Every little noise is growling.
Is this just a puppy phase?? Will she grow out of it?? How do I stop it?
I really don't want to make her sleep in another room, but this is all night and I have to sleep.

Does she growl and stop or does she keep doing it?

One thing I would do is not put her in the bed. Or not put her in the crate. Right now she probably thinks she'll get to be in the bed with you if she barks at night. You could try putting her back in her crate or just start out with her sleeping on the bed.

Well, last night she was in the crate to start and barked. But I put her in bed after that and when she heard noise outside, she was growling again. So, I don't think it's because she wants in the bed...she just hears things and starts barking.

I agree with that, but I do think she's also getting positive reinforcement for her behavior when you put her in the bed. Could you try ignoring her (after making sure she doesn't need to go potty)?

Gucci, I think you are just on watch patrol!--Yogi Will Bark if my stomach growls and just about every thing else--but there is always a reason.
i never yell i always just say good boy!! One Day That Bark could Be important.--He Stops barking also with me saying-Its All Right!
He is 9-mo old now. i think as they get older-they begin to become more aware of everything.

2nd pic-he sees the deer!

Oh, I know that she's just being my watch dog. And I don't mind. But when I tell her to "calm down, it's ok" she just keeps going. I'm trying to teach her "Quiet" so when she's barking, I say it loud, but in this situation when I'm asleep, I say it soft and hope she gets it. I hope it gets better soon.
