Do I ignore this behavior until he is older or are their methods to do so with out being discouraging.
If you ignore it, you are in effect training him to bark. The link in his brain is "I bark, I get a retrieve." He has absolutely no reason to stop and every incentive to bark louder and longer.

Fix it how you will, but fix it now, nothing else in his training profile matters.

The basic principle is to only reward his good (ie silent) behaviour with a retrieve.

The Amish method involves a bucket of water ....
