Is this normal?

by Jean

My Coton does sleep a lot. What's normal? He is 16 months old. His weight is 6 kg should he be heavier?

He barks and goes crazy when he see another dog outside is that normal for a Coton?

What's your suggestions to get him over it?
He had not been socialised as a puppy.
I have him accepting people now and ponies but he barks and carries on when he sees another dog something shocking.

Any advice please.

Normal NEW
by: Abbie's Mom

Actually, the water bottle worked for me. We couldn't go for a walk without some drama when encountering another dog. Abbie sounded like some vicious lunatic. So now I carry the water bottle and in 3 weeks she's been SO much better.

As for sleeping, Abbie is 2 1/2 and she's always been a sleeper when she's bored. If we go out or there's something going on she's awake but if we're just hanging out she's asleep somewhere.

Bark Collar NEW
by: Maureen

Hi, Our coton Riley barked and growled so much at other dogs people would cross the street to avoid him.We live in a small adult community so it really was a problem. We tried a spray bottle of water, no change. A friend of our daughters is a veterinarian
and she uses a bark collar, it sprays a citrus smelling spray when the dog barks. It does not harm the dog and it works. We bought our at Pets Mart.
Hope this will help you.
