If you have a dog that won’t stop barking up a storm, the following tips might help.
. Tone is key
Say what you want to your dog, essentially it doesn’t matter, it’s how you say them that counts. Your tone of voice when giving a command is the difference between barking non-stop and immediate obedience.
. Praise, but only when praise is due
Praise for your dog should only come when earned. Praising him when he responds to a command will help him understand what is right and what is wrong.
. Ignoring him
It’s a sad part of dog training but a much needed necessity. A good thing to do before you leave your house is to do things in and around your home while paying him no attention, then leave without making a big deal. This makes him independent.
Lastly, be sure to give your dog plenty of chew toys and games. A dog that is not bored will bark less.
