We love our girls but we are also aware that they like to bark. So when we leave them alone during the day we try to make the motorhome as barkproof as possible. We pull all the shades and turn the radio on so they can't hear the noises outside. The dash really creates a problem because they love to sit up there and sunbathe. So we had to blockade their access to the dash. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
