STOP DOG BARKING TIPS
Now let’s look at some very quick and effective ways to keep your dog from barking.
11) GET A DOG WALKER
Taking your dog for a fun walk is good practice for both of you, but it’s not an option when you’re away. Giving them a healthy outlet for all that energy is a great way to tire them out so they can sleep instead of barking.
Keep them active when you’re not around by asking someone to walk your dog. You can rotate your family members according to each person’s schedule.
10) DON’T YELL BACK AT THEM
It is normal to get upset or annoyed when your dog barks and will not stop. But the last thing you want to do is give in to your feelings and start screaming or moving towards them. Your dog does not know how to explain it.
What most dogs will see when doing this is that you bark with them. By getting loud or screaming to stop it, they see it as a validation to continue barking or even raising it slightly.
9) REMOVE THE MOTIVATION
Does your dog go crazy every time someone walks through your house or approaches your backyard? Suppress the barking impulse by closing the curtains or inserting the dog inside to calm him down.
Once you are sure they are comfortable, you can open the curtains or play your dog. Be consistent with eliminating what makes them bark and they should quickly learn to stay calm, even when it does appear in the future.
