11 Ways to Stop Dog Barking
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.
8) JUST IGNORE IT
If you stay at home and don’t have to worry about annoying neighbors, the effective choice to keep your dog from barking is often to ignore it. Although it’s a tight touch, it still has quick results, so the temporary noise is worth it.
Grab your dog’s attention whenever your barking dog knows this behavior rewards him. He taught them that this was often not the case so as not to give up. They usually get tired once they realize that they will not get the exact result.
7) TRY DIFFERENT AREAS
Dog barking is usually a symbol of hysteria which usually occurs due to separation anxiety. But only about barking dogs, you can sometimes remedy this by simply changing their environment.
It is best to leave many dogs outside, while others may feel locked up and safer, like a box. Finding the right place will take some experience, but if you find a work area, it’s worth it.
6) FEED AND WATER
You know that dogs can’t communicate in the ways that we can, so recognize that sometimes their barking isn’t just them showing annoyance, anger, or fear, but rather “I’m hungry” or “I’m thirsty!”
If your dog won’t stop barking, offering them their food bowl or checking to make sure they need water will solve the matter more often than you’d think. Make certain that they’ve got somewhere warm and cozy to rest, as well.
