We use a newspaper that is rolled up. If Faith is doing something she is not suppose to we will hit it on our hand and that gets her attention and she stops. Now that we have done it for awhile we can actually leave a newspaper that is rolled up on the table or wherever and she doesn't want to go near it. We have never hit her with it either. We have sprayed her with water when she is barking in the backyard and that helps only if we are out there the whole time.
