I know some of you owners do agility with your dogs-and they are very good at it- I have been doing it with Zuni for a year and a half and as far as i can tell he LOVES it - he is extremely enthusiastic and smart as a whip and fast. We are having one issue and i was wondering if anyone else encountered this and how you solved it. He is really fast and when he gets a bit ahead he barks ..like "hey hey hey come on" and jumps on me as i am running which is not normal (the jumping up) . He kind of barks or talks more than I'd like in general---like loud alerts to everything just 1-3 barks "hey look at that" or "hey you forgot me " Zuni always has something to say ... anyway all ideas are appreciated!

Kooskie has a high pitched, piercing bark. I solved the problem by working on the quiet "woof".
Hand signal and voice command "BARK", then treat. Yes, the bark. Now, the woof... Small version of the bark hand signal, and quiet command ...woof.
As soon as she made any quiet sound, I rewarded her. She is pretty good at it, now.
