Barking Resistance that Fades to a Grunt

Having recently mastered his bark (which is much louder than you might expect for an 11.5 week old puppy), Vinson has begun using his bark to assert that he would rather be out of the crate than in it (at work, until he has his 13 week inoculations, he must be crated in the office).

After a correction, Vinson will continue to bark for a little bit - typically less than 30 seconds. Once he realizes that he is not winning the situation, the bark begins to get lower and weaker, until it is nothing but a slow groan. Quite comical to listen to the fade-out; and just another part of growing, learning and training!
