My dog is treated like a child in my house. And he behaves like one too. He is the center of our life, but not when it comes to barking, I must say that he disturbs our life and that of our neighbors. I refuse to use any device to combat the bark of it, so I have to trust in working on his behavior using less intrusive methods. Working hard on training makes perfect sense.

Dogs bark usually for a reason. If you can find out the reason, you can eliminate the barking. He may be anxious, seeking attention, or may be a warning. I will teach how to control barking. I say control, because dogs need to bark sometimes, and we need their barking sometimes too.

Your dog is a warning. I still want him to warn me when we are asleep and someone is entering your home. The answer is probably yes. Therefore, all you have to do is to train your dog how to recognize when they have done well their job. You need a way to tell that the squirrel that runs around of the window is not going to steal your home.

You need some small treats and about ten minutes a day for many weeks. I do not mind giving him a handful of dog cookies for each training session. Just make sure to use a bite-size treat for training.

Take your dog to a place in his home where he or she will not be easily distracted from their training. Try to simulate an event that will make your dog bark. In my case, knocking on the door do the trick. I ask someone in my family to leave the door where the training is taking place and give a blow, or even better – call the doorbell. I let my dog give me a warning or two barks. Firm, the status of a command that you use constantly use to tell your dog to stop barking.

My command is “NOO.” After the command and from the moment he stops barking, even for a second, I reward him with a treat immediately.

It is important to reward immediately, while the dog can associate the two events well. Thus, it means being rewarded for not barking and he understands it. Repeat this technique for ten minutes using the same command for some weeks as said above.
