Ideas To Help Stop Your Dog From Barking

Author : Andrew Goligher

Dogs, like people, enjoy communicating. Dogs, unlike people, can communicate with very loud barking. Help your pet avoid becoming a nuisance by using some good barking dog training ideas.

Of course, we appreciate when our dog warns us of potential danger by barking. It is actually part of its nature to protect its family. And if its human family has loved it and trained it well, this type of barking only occurs when needed. It is really the other kinds of barking that is unpleasant.

Be forewarned that some dog breeds are talkers by nature. They bark for all sorts of reasons. They attempt to communicate warnings, their fears, loneliness, thirst and hunger, and they often want attention. They simply need training to know when to bark and when not to.

Train your family pet to bark appropriately by developing a firm command that you will use when you expect it to stop. Many experts recommend a simple one word command such as stop or quit. Speak the command with a strong voice, and control the barking. Once the barking stops, then reward it when it is quiet with treats and affection. Repeat these steps consistently, and over time, your family friend will come to know what you expect of it.

Avoid shouting at your barking dog, even when every fiber of your beings wants to. It simply thinks you are barking too, and will probably bark louder. It thinks you are joining into the barking conversation. Just keep your voice firm and strong and say your command word.

The best time to begin training any dog to not bark is the minute it comes into your home. If you have a puppy, start right away. If you have adopted an older dog, do the same. The goal in both cases is to reward quiet with lots of praise and affection. If the dog barks, command it to stop, and then reward it with a treat when it does. Never reward the dog by yelling at it.

You can guarantee that nuisance barking generally starts with a trigger. Finding out what the trigger is where you start to train. Check to be certain your property is safe. Be certain the dog is not in danger from people in the neighborhood. Do not leave the dog alone all day, nor leave it alone outside either. It will become lonely or frightened. At that point, the barking will resume because it is the only tool it has to tell you its troubles.

Often, dogs simply need more exercise, playtime, and petting. Make certain that you devote regular time for these things in your daily routine. Your dog will feel more confident that it is loved and part of your pack. Remember that dogs are social animals and need time together with you to feel safe. Try these simple barking dog training ideas to solve your problem quickly.
