Teaching Barking Dogs To Keep Quiet

Dogs bark because it's their nature. Among all dog breeds, it's only the Basenji of South Africa that doesn't bark. Barking is the dog's ways of conveying what it wants to say.

But average woofing is not a concern. Barking becomes a trouble when it becomes excessive. You must find a way to bring it to an end. You can stop barking dogs especially if you know what triggered it.

Things that can Cause Unnecessary Dog Barking

Canines bark for many reasons, but the most prevalent ones are annoyance, anticipation and fright. If their area is under threat, they complain. If they are upset, meeting another canine or they want your attention, they bark too.   

But the baddest habit barking dogs can have is compulsive barking. You must put this thing to an end.

Ways to Stop Dogs from Compulsive Barking

In order to put an end to compulsive dog barking, you must know what triggered it. According to dog experts, 90% of excessive dog barking can be minimized.  

In order to find out what factors triggered your dog's barking behavior, you should refer to these questions:

* At what times does your dog usually bark?

* Can you name a specific object that your pet is barking at?

Does your canine's barking follow any specific incident?

Dogs are territorial creatures. If woofing is triggered by threats to its domain, it may be difficult to stop. Yelling at them may only result in aggression.   

Do not allow your dog to become territorial. You should take control of the household and stop it from claiming the place as its own. Enforce your alpha leadership and your pet will stop its claim on your house. You can also lower your canine's barking behavior by reducing its capability to identify incoming threats. Drawing the blinds, erecting fences and preventing your dog from looking through windows are among the most effective ways to prevent barking dogs from territorial barking.
