I can't tell you why the Shelties bark so much but when we had that problem our vet suggested a bark collar. It was a very humane quick fix. Our dog learned within just a few minutes not to bark when the collar was on and would bark for joy when we removed the collar. We basically had her wear it only when we were away from home. After a few months our battery needed replacing but we did not need to do so because of the dog's training. She was fooled. This collar saved the relationships we had with our neighbors and kept us from yelling at the doh.
