In this article you will learn How to Stop Dogs from Barking
The following are some tips on how to stop your dog from barking excessively. Once you get your dog, you should begin training and socializing them immediately. This is because you’ll have a much harder time teaching an older dog new tricks than a younger one. Begin by teaching your dog to only bark on command. Say out loud “talk” or “speak” when they bark and soon enough he will relate this word to barking, and more importantly as a time when he is allowed to bark. You should also teach your dog to obey commands such as “stop” or “quiet” and ensure that you say these words with a firm voice.
Remember to always positively reinforce good behavior in your dog. So say if he stops barking when you command him to, you should reward him with a treat, a toy, and petting or heap tons of verbal praise on them. If your dog ignores your cue words telling him to stop barking, try to get his attention by making loud sudden noises such as hitting the table top in order to distract him. If you are leaving your dog alone in the house when you go out, you should leave the radio or television on such that they do not feel like they are alone which could make them start barking.
