I recently purchased an 8 month old Griffon male. We have another Griff, they get along just fine. The new dog will NOT stop barking at my husband. If he moves, or talks, or leaves the room, the dog barks. Open for any suggestions. The barking is getting worse. He now barks at company-male and female- I put him in his crate for a few minutes and when he is quiet, I return him to the company and he is fine. Perhaps he has never been around men.

My boys bark at my fiancee if I am still in bed and they bark at company. I believe it is a territorial / cowardly lion issue with the smaller one and an attention getter with the larger one. The breed can be protective of their owners. I generally sit on the floor with them and tell them to calm down and it seems to work.
