Dog Barking Problems

 

Difficulty and Training: Solutions to restrain your dog’s excessive barking

               Does your dog bark at anyone or anything? Are your neighbours complaining when he barks endlessly at the middle of the night? Does he even bark at an even the slightest noise that you yourself cannot hear? Obviously, the problem of your dog is doing too much barking. Barking may be the dog’s natural way of communicating but if he barks incessantly and inappropriately, well, you better take some actions as this will be a problem between you and your neighbours.You must be wondering how will you get him to stop. Well, fret not. Here are some surefire solutions that will definitely reduce your dog’s barking. There are two ways where you can stop barking- Hindrance and Training. However, it is more effective if you use both.

Hindrances

1.       Bark collar- Everytime your dog barks, this collar will vibrate, surprising him, making him to stop. This goes on, until he learns to bark properly. However, this will not be beneficial to a dog that barks due to fear. Using this will only make him  stressed and more fearful.

2.     Place him in the most comfortable position, where he cannot see any people passing by to distract him.
3.       Ultrasonic Deterrent – These almost serve as a “silencer” where humans may almost not hear the dog’s barking.

4.         Citronella collar- Same as the bark collar, but this one sprays citronella in the dog’s eyes once he barks. But if you love your dog, have a second thought of purchasing this as this may irritate his eyes.

5.       Give him activities-This will help remove the boredom away.

6.       Accupuncture-it helps cure barking problems as this will help him relax.  His circulation will helped to balance.

How To Stop Dog Barking

Training1.       Dogs are easier to train while they are young. Train him while he is still a puppy.2.     Now, train your dog to stop the barking. Being quiet is the third thing you must teach to him after the “bark” and “whisper” lessons. You can do this by lowering your voice and make imitate you by lowering his voice too. This may be enjoying and you will get to make him easily participate in any game to play with him. Command him in a low voice so he will lower his too. Your dog may find this exciting and will enjoy participating in your game. Always reward him with a treat everytime he follows a command.3.       Educate your dog to bark-you might find this weird since our aim here is to lessen his barking, but trust me, this is important. Train him to bark when you command him to do so. If he barks, give him a treat. Then say “whisper”. If he founds a way to lower his voice, reward him again with a yummy treat. Everytime he barks without being asked to, use the “whisper” command.Dogs naturally bark and you should let them. Of course you don’t want to forever stop barking and all you must do is to stop their excessive habit. However, don’t easily trust the debarking treaments being offered elsewhere. Some are advertised in the way your dogs don’t deserve.
