I have a beardie that came to me at 8 months old.  He came with many bad habits- jumping, barking, and running away to the name the most annoying.  The worst behavior is barking.  From all the things I read, it says to teach them not to bark from an early age.  I did not have that chance.  He barks at people, the phone, when we call each other's names, when we reprimand him, and when one of our other dogs has a toy, he barks because he wants it.  I tried the citronella spray collar and he barks at the spray.  Please help.  What can I do?  I do reprimand him for barking and reward quiet behavior consistently but it is now working.
