“loud dog barking why is my dog barking for no reason”

Some studies suggest that the electric current from the shock collars for dogs results in aggression, stress or persistent anxiety. How severe the effects of the no-bark dog collar actually are depend on the trainer and the environment in which the collar is used.

Most dogs will bark if there’s motion or sound — like a squirrel zipping across the lawn or a kid racing on his bike past the house. They might bark to warn off intruders at the door or other dogs that come too near the fence. Dogs might bark in excitement when you get out the leash to go for a walk they might bark from stress when they have separation anxiety from being away from you. And some dogs just bark because they’re bored and don’t have anything else to do.

Gently closing your dog’s mouth. If you have a dog that will bark and ‘sport’ at people or other animals a head halter, such as a Gentle Leader that enables you to close his mouth and guide him into an acceptable behavior is a big advantage. Introduce the halter so your dog accepts it willingly and, when an unwanted bark happens, lift the leash so the dog’s mouth closes and he is guided into a sit. Now move again and change your direction creating attention to you as you move elsewhere. So, we stop dog barking, we gain attention and we redirect to an acceptable behavior in one simple step.

My 4 yr old neutered Bischon/ Maltese never stops barking unless he is eating or sleeping. I have 6 different collars to ” stop him from barking ” but none of them work !!! He is making me very stressed !!! I live across from my Superintendent.

A behavior chain is a series of behaviors strung together. Your dog may learn to bark once or twice to get you to turn your back, say quiet, and feed him a treat. His short behavior chain is “bark – then be quiet.” To avoid this, be sure to acknowledge and reward him frequently before he even starts barking.

What you’ve just done is checked out the danger (even if it was just a bird in a tree) and calmly communicated to them using your body language, the tone of your voice and your energy that there’s no need to worry. If they continue barking after you’ve done this then you can very calmly pop them into time out for a couple of minutes.

If your dog most often barks territorially in your yard, keep him in the house during the day and supervise him when he’s in the yard so that he can’t just bark his head off when no one’s around. If he’s sometimes able to engage in excessive alarm barking (when you’re not around, for example), that behavior will get stronger and harder to reduce.

Many of the “humane” methods are humane to humans. Those standards shouldn’t apply to animals. Citronella in the eyes is as painful as a quick shock. What we might prefer is not the same as what a dog might. The beauty of the shock collar is that it is over quickly, and animals (generally) learn fast. So while trying to work it out in a way that a human would prefer may work, for dogs that are persistent and stubborn barkers, these collars are quick and effective trainers. And, that method may have more to do with you and what you can stomach than what an animal might actually suffer less from.

Luckily, most dogs will quickly learn that being quiet will result in more rewards and attention through training and positive conditioning. While it may take a bit more effort on the front end, your ears and neighbors will appreciate the investment in training your dog to embrace their inner peace and quiet.

Trek to Teach is a nonprofit organization that sends fluent English speakers to teach in Nepal near the Himalayas. In addition to teaching, Trek to Teach strengthens local communities by helping schools build infrastructure, paint their classrooms, and find furniture.

Your dog needs to understand when to bark and when to be quiet, and it’s your job to teach this to her. Start working on problem barking as soon as you can. The longer you wait, the harder it gets to curb the behavior.

You can also work with a trainer to practice desensitization techniques that help your dog become accustomed to barking triggers and ultimately stop responding. Training takes consistency and patience, but the long-term rewards are worth it!

Eventually your dog will learn to be quiet on command without getting a treat. Even after you’ve reached this stage of training, however, you should still give your dog verbal praise when she stops barking.[52]

Outside, you might consider putting slats in the chain link fence to cut down on his visual access to the world surrounding his yard (better yet, install a privacy fence) or put up an interior fence to block his access to the more stimulating parts of the yard. Given that alarm barking will inevitably occur, it’s also useful to teach him a positive interrupt – a cue, other than “Shut up!” that you can use to stop him in mid-bark. (See “The Positive Interrupt,” to the right of this page.) How to stop a dog from barking

If your dog likes toys, keep a favorite toy near the front door and encourage him to pick up the toy before he greets you or guests. If he learns to hold a toy in his mouth, he’ll be less inclined to bark. (He’ll probably still whine, however).

Like many Collies,  he loves to bark and has a lot to say. Think Sheltie, only bigger. Finn’s bark has a genetic component. Collie’s bark to herd sheep. In the photo below, Finn is just about to bark  “let’s play!”

This type of barking is a form of expression which often developed through positive reinforcement from the owner. If your dog barks to let you know he needs to go relieve himself, this is usually a good thing. When he barks because he wants your dinner or to play or go for a walk, this is less positive.

As your dog learns that silence is rewarded with treats and barking is ignored, you’ll need to gradually extend the period of time that your dog must be quiet before receiving a treat. For example, once she has passed the initial stages of getting a treat after the barking has stopped, you may want to prolong the required quiet time by a few seconds each day and work your way up to a minute or two before rewarding her.[10]

What a shame to see you suggesting cruel methods such as citronella collars. Punishing and/or scaring a dog for barking is cruel and does not address the root issue(s). You should be encouraging people to actually _train_ their dogs (using scientifically valid, humane, force-free methods).

Will the dog go into a barking frenzy for half an hour when you get back home from work? Your neighbors will know that you are home and they will surely not enjoy that barking. The problem in this case is that the dog is simply too excited. He loves that you are home and is simply expressing joy. Many pet owners will try to force the dog to stop barking in this case or will try to correct the behavior while being mad. This is a really bad idea.

Similarly, she says, if your dog barks when you pick up the leash to go for a walk, don’t reward him by heading out the door and giving him what he wants. Instead, drop the leash until he settles and stops barking. If he barks as soon as you clip on the leash, drop it and ignore him until he quiets down. It takes patience, but eventually he’ll learn that barking won’t get him what he wants.

The best way to think of it is to imagine some children playing… then you’ll get the idea of what is going on… They start to have fun, then they get excited, then they start shouting and then start yelling!

Other types of no-bark collars are just as bad, including those that squirt lemon juice, emit noises that are too high-pitched for human ears, or emit a citronella smell.  The purpose of all of these is the same: The collar senses when the dog’s vocal cords are moving and an unpleasant response is made active.  The result is to train the dog to stop barking through negative re-enforcement of the behavior.  Negative re-enforcement, however, is not a good way to train dogs, and newer, more advanced training methods of training rely on positive re-enforcement.  Punishments, if they still play a role in some training regimens, are not repulsive and hurtful to the dog, and might be something like a drop of water on the tip of the nose.

The next step in “Go to Your Spot” training is to recruit friends and family to help you conduct mock practice visits. Arrange to have someone come to the door. You will work with your dog to help him stay on his own. Be prepared! This will probably take a long time the first few visits. When you open the door, one of two things can happen. Sometimes you leave your dog there on his spot while you talk to the person at the door, as if your visitor is a courier or delivery person. Your dog never gets to say hello. (However, you, the person or both of you should frequently toss treats to your dog to reward him for staying.) At other times, invite the visitor in. Wait until the person sits down somewhere, and then release your dog to join you and your guest. When you have a friend help you with a mock visit, be sure to repeat the scenario over and over, at least 10 to 20 times. Practice makes perfect! Have the person come in for 5 to 10 minutes or just pretend to deliver something, then leave for 5 to 10 minutes, then return for a second visit, and so on. Your dog should experience at least 10 visits in a row with the same person. With each repetition, it will become easier for him to do what you expect because he’ll be less excited by the whole routine—especially when it’s the same person at the door, over and over again.

We took the steps of talking to our neighbor. They got some kind of a squirt collar for the dog when he’s left alone outside, and when he barks, it seems to have helped. A lot depends on how ignorant and inconsiderate your neighbor is. I’d start with trying to make contact and starting a discussion, explaining why it’s a problem. Try to enlist their help before indicating further steps might be necessary. You might be surprised. The ignorance may be that the owner had no idea the dog was doing that. If all fails, then you would be justified in involving the authorities.

Here is a YouTube video of a trainer using a clicker to teach ‘speak’.  A clicker is a noise that you pair with treats, so when you are training, your dog knows he is on the right track. You can also train this skill without a clicker and just treats.

In fact I was working with one yesterday! (A poor little Golden Doodle who was annoying the neighbors…the owners had tried everything and were just about to strap on an electric shock collar!) Not cool!

Don’t use inconsistent rules. If you yell at him for barking at some sights or sounds, such as the kids leaving for school, and encourage him to bark at others, like the salesman at the door, he will be hard-put to distinguish between the two events. The result will be a still-constantly barking dog.

For this reason bark collars are considered by veterinary behaviorists to be a costly investment for something that most likely will not work long-term and may even be harmful. More exercise, chewing, company and stimulation can assist.

I have a 5 yr. old rough coated collie who barks very loud and consistently every tine I am talking on the telephone I at first thought he wanted attention but that’s not the case. When I am finished talking he walks away and is quiet. Please someone help. I am tired of going into the bathroom and closing the door if it’s a important phone call ! Ugggg

If your dog isn’t house-safe, use crates, exercise pens, a professional dog walker (or volunteer one – you’d be amazed at how many people would like to walk a dog, but not own one!), lots of exercise, even doggie daycare to keep him out of trouble, until he earns house privileges. You can also enrich the dog’s environment, by giving him interactive toys such as food-stuffed Kong toys that keep his brain engaged and his mouth busy.

Toys: Separation barkers benefits from having something to do when you leave the house. A hard rubber toy, that dispenses treats are a great way to keep them happy, and their mouth busy with something other than barking. Just be careful that the toy is big enough not to be a chocking-hazard.

When you have someone come to the door pretending to be the mailman, it’s imperative that your friend does not leave the porch until your dog is quiet. If he leaves while she is still barking, she may come to think that it was her barking which drove him away.[55]

Pet owners always think it is strange when I recommend teaching their dog to bark on command. This places the behavior under stimulus control and with one more step, you can teach your dog to be ‘quiet’ on command.

Your dog needs to understand when to bark and when to be quiet, and it’s your job to teach this to her. Start working on problem barking as soon as you can. The longer you wait, the harder it gets to curb the behavior.

In the “less-barking” category, the guarding breeds tend to reserve their formidable vocalizing for serious provocation. Sight hounds also lean toward the quiet side, preferring to chase their quarry rather than bark at it. Then, of course, there’s the Basenji -a somewhat primitive African breed of dog who doesn’t bark – but he sure can scream!

The point is this: Dealing with a dog that won’t stop barking day or night is frustrating for everyone. Figuring out the behavioral problem that is causing your dog’s barking could save your sanity and keep the peace.

Teach “hush”: (helpful for territorial barkers and alarm barkers, as well as some excitement and play barkers) sometimes we want our dog to bark for a short time to alert us to people at the door, but many of us would like to be able to stop the barking after a few minutes. Teaching your dog the “hush” command can short-circuit a dedicated barker. The next time your dog barks at something, place a treat in your hand, walk up to your dog and put your hand in front of his nose so that he can smell the treat but can’t get to it. He should stop barking to sniff at your hand. Once he’s quiet and sniffing say “hush” and toss the treat a few steps away from him. Repeat the process until you can just say “hush”’ without needing the hand prompt in front of his nose, then give him a treat. In time, you should be able to say “hush” and your dog will abandon the barking and come to you for his reward for being quiet.

A dog that is tired is actually a dog that is really happy. This is something that many dog owners do not understand. We need to know that dogs are active. They simply want to do something. Above we said that dogs that are bored will start barking. You can take care of that by giving the dog many activities that he can do. Since he does not stay and always does something, he will be happy. Eventually he will get tired and the tired dog will always be really quiet.

Ignore your dog’s barking for as long as it takes him to stop. That means don’t give him any attention at all while he’s barking. Your attention only rewards him for being noisy. Don’t talk to him, don’t touch him, and don’t even look at him. When he finally quiets, even to take a reward him with a treat.

Before you can stop a dog from barking, it’s helpful to understand why he’s doing it. Dogs bark for all sorts of reasons, but it’s all a method of communication, says certified canine trainer and behaviorist Susie Aga, owner of Atlanta Dog Trainer.

Some studies suggest that the electric current from the shock collars for dogs results in aggression, stress or persistent anxiety. How severe the effects of the no-bark dog collar actually are depend on the trainer and the environment in which the collar is used.

Dogs are social animals, so it’s natural for them to bark when they hear others barking. You can discourage this tendency by keeping your dog indoors when other dogs are barking, by playing music to drown out the sound of other dogs, and by distracting your dog with treats or play when other dogs bark (whether it’s in real life or on TV).

Reward good behavior. When your dog finally does stop barking, it’s important that you praise and reward her for her silence. Over time, your dog will learn that being silent and obedient will achieve greater results than acting out and barking.[7] How to stop a dog from barking

“pet sikker bark kontrol krave hvordan man stopper en hund fra at gøe hos andre hunde”

En anden mindre foretrækkelig måde er, at ignorere gøen og vente på det går væk. I et bur eller lukket område, kan dette arbejde (især med en hvalp, der skal lære at bosætte sig) være godt, men hvis hunden er udenfor eller i et stort område, så kan gøen i sig selv være selvgivende. I mange tilfælde er der flere stimuli forekommende, som vil tilskynde hunden til at gø. Efter min mening bør hunde aldrig efterlades uden opsyn eller uledsaget. Gå derimod ud med din hund, og tillad den ikke at løbe op og ned af hegnet, løbe ned ad gaden efter biler, eller gø efter den person, der går forbi. Vis din kontrol og tillid er til at håndtere disse situationer og være leder af din flok, så er det den bedste løsning. Hav den på en snor eller en lang line, så du kan styrke dine kommandoer og bevare kontrollen uden at råbe eller blive ophidset, når den forsøger uønsket adfærd.

Research before finalizing – As a dog owner you always prefer comfortable life for your loving pooch. Make sure that before finalizing any anti-barking device for your beloved doggie you do rigorous research on the same. You can shortlist the valuable devices by the reviews and feedback. Plan the list of the requirements you prefer for your pet and then proceed to buy the best device that suits you and your pet comfortably.

Når du er hjemme, hjælper du din hund ind i dens opholdssted med 2-4 foderfyldte stykker tyggelegetøj, som du binder fast inde i hulen (dvs. fx transportkassen). Det er bare de første gange du binder dem fast, således at hvalpen kommer til at holde af hulen. Hvalpe sover meget og derfor vil den hurtigt vælge at tage en lur efter et dejligt måltid. transportabelt bur eller transportkasse er en ideel hundehule (ikke anderledes end et barns tremmeseng eller kravlegård), men du skal ikke lukke og derfor fjerner du lågen. På denne måde lærer din hund at slappe af ved siden af dig, mens du læser, arbejder ved computeren eller ser Tv.

Hunde kan gø af en række forskellige årsager. De kan give et advarsel til et andet dyr, de kan slå alarm, de kan gøre det ved leg eller ønske om leg, hvor spændingen i øjeblikket kræver en reaktion. Af andre årsager kan nævnes frygt og behov for at jage et andet dyr eller objekt væk, og nogle gange kan hunde gø bare af hensyn til gøen. Til tider kan det være en kombination af disse. Når hvalpene gør, kan det være usikkerhed efter de forlader deres trygge flok.

Videre er det lovpligtigt at hunden bærer hundetegn med ejers navn og adresse – og tlf. nr. er også anbefalelsesværdigt. Adopterede hunde skal beholde deres DOP dk hundetegn på, indtil man har modtaget den nye registreringsattest og har sat et eget hundetegn på sin hund.

110 thi under Krigen maatte en hel Del af Sundeveds Beboere flygte over til Als med alt deres Bohave og Kreaturbesætning, og da fik de en helt anden Mening om den Alsiske Befolkning. Imellem Alsinger og Ærøboer raadede der i gammel Tid Skinsyge. Mange Karle og Piger fra Ærø søgte Tjeneste paa Als saa vel som andre Steder. Navnlig tjente der mange Ærøboer i den søndre Del af Als. I en Vise hedder det: Det Ærøbo Pak, det er jo min Snak, de skulde jo Landet forvises; de kommer jo her, gør Nar ad enhver, Skønt de ej kan tælle til fire. Og et andet Sted hedder det: Og al den forstand, den Ærøboer har den sidder i den stribede Trøje. Ærøboen plejer, fortælles der fra gammel Tid, at gaa med en Sæk kastet over Nakken, fordi han gerne handler om et og andet, hvor Lejligheden byder sig. lierfor maa han døje megen Spot af Alsingerne. Men Ærøboen svarer:»vi ved nok, at Alsingerne gør Nar ad vor Sæk; men vi bærer vor Forstand i Posen og binder ordentlig for den; men Alsingerne bærer deres Forstand i en Kurv paa Armen og lader den flyve fra sig.«folk har fortalt, at en Tønde Korn kunde koste L Rigsdaler mere i Flensborg end i Sønderborg, og det i hele 14 Dage, uden at andre end vedkommende Kornkøbmand fik noget at vide derom.

Der er ingen tvivl om, at vores hunde gerne vil være der, hvor vi er. Det styrker flokfølelsen og giver hunden tryghed. Men hvis man ikke ønsker denne adfærd, så handler det om at være konsekvent helt fra starten – og det gælder alle i familien!

105 Om Vinteren kom der en Del Vestboer, som havde arbejdet i Marsken, og søgte Tærske-Arbejde; de kom helt ude fra Læk, Løgumkloster, kort sagt hele Vesteregnen; de blev kun Vinteren over; saa skulde de igen til Marsken og -husse-. det var at slaa Græs. En Tid blev der fisket en stor Mængde Fisk (Torsk); de var meget billige. Fiskerne trak de fangede Torsk paa Vidjer, paa hver, alt efter Størrelsen; saadan et Knippe fisk kostede da i Reglen 1 Skilling lybsk, omkring 6 Øre. Der boede i Ulkebøl en gammel Mand der hed Jørgen Krog; han havde et lille Landsted paa et Par Tønder Land, og derpaa holdt han 1 Ko og et Par faar, og saa fodrede han og hans Kone sig et Svin; men der skulde jo ogsaa Penge til, og saa havde han en Baad og fiskede lidt i Augustenborg fjord; han havde til Mundheld at sige»gid den Jø«; det var ikke at bande, men dog en Bekræftelse af, at det var sandt, hvad han sagde. Naar han saa kom med fisk, og alle Slættinget (Rødspætter) var, solgt, og han kun havde Flyndere tilbage, vilde folk jo ikke saa gerne købe dem. Men saa sagde gamle Jørgen Krog:»Ifvem der kender en flynder i Grunden, saa er det gid den Jø en raar Fisk«. Og saa slap han ogsaa af med sine flyndere. Hvert f oraar skulde gamle Jørgen Krog jo have sig en lille Gris, og da han hørte, at Grisene i Nørreherred var en 4-5 Lybskskilling billigere end hjemme, tog han og Mor tilsøs over til Nørreherred at hente dem en Gris; Turen over gik godt, Grisen blev købt, puttet i en Sæk, og Krog tog den paa Ryggen ned til Baaden. Grisen blev lagt paa Bunden ai Baaden, og Hjemrejsen begyndte nu at gaa for sig. Da det var ret køligt, blev Grisen mere rolig, og gamle Krog var bange for, at der var noget i Vejen med den. Det vilde han dog se efter, og- saa løste han for Sækken; men Grisen, som var spillevende, sprang over Bord. Da gamle Krog var vendt hjem til Byen, fortalte han:» Mor ruied, aa re grif; men e Gris det stak lig ad e Dyfning :

E Prakkerfoue i Almsted var en Ærøbo, fortæller Kirsten Eriksen, og vi kaldte ham altid»gammel Rasmus«. Hans Kone hed Synne, og saa længe de var stærke nok til det, hjalp de hverandre at stryge raa Sten. Rasmus var lidt kejtet (tog forkert paa Tingene); naar han somme Tider hjalp hjemme i Høsten, og han f. Eks. skulde række Ærter af Vognen, kom han altid fejl i Lagene, og stod og sled i dem, saa han svedte og dampede og var helt sort om Aftenen. De havde en Søn, der hed Tammes (Thomas); han havde bedt op (havde gaaet til Konfirmation) sammen med min Moder. Han blev Missionær nede i Afrika, og han skikkede somme Tider gamle Rasmus lidt Skillinger, og den Missionær var Rasmus jo glad over og vilde gerne snakke om. – Saa havde de en Datter, der hed Mitrin (Marie Katrine); hun fik et Barn saadan sides ved, og det tog hun og Moderen og brændte; men det blev opdaget, og de kom i e Gaf (Gabet, Hullet) en Tur. Da Konen siden døde, og Rasmus ikke kunde arbejde længer, blev han Prakkerfoged og gik paa Omgang hos Bønderne og fik sin Onnen (Middagsmad). Der var iyst 7 Bønder, og hver Søndag fik han Mad hos os. Han skulde altsaa jage alle Bosser (Haandværkssvende) og Beiiolk (Bedefolk d. e. Tiggere) ud af Byen. Men e Bosser forlangte af ham, at han skulde have et Skilt paa; ellers vilde de ikke lystre ham. Saa lavede Smeden en Jærnplade, hvor der stod Politi paa. Den havde han Iastsyet paa Ærmet. Men somme Tider narrede Bosserne ham alligevel og gik bag om Byen og kom ind ved den anden Ende. Der boede en Rakker i Hulen ved Landevejen i Svenstrup Sogn.

29/4: Våkne lesere har gjort meg oppmerksom på at det ikke kommer godt nok fram at buret IKKE skal fungere som en oppbevaringsplass for hunden. Altså skal døra som regel stå åpen! Selv etter burtrening. Den eneste årsaken til at vi trener på å ha døra igjen er fordi vi ved noen tilfeller må ha det. Som ved bilkjøring, i kennel o.l. Da er det viktig at hunden er vant til det, fra den er valp, så opplevelsen ikke blir traumatisk.  

#22   30. nov 2011 Hmm. Har du nogen argumenter for det du siger? Siden du jo bare skriver at jeg tager fejl, og at du har ret? Jeg har fulgt meget med hos nogle såkaldte “hundehviskere”, og det var dem der satte mig ind i alt det jeg sidder og skriver. Og de ting de siger og de metoder de bruger har virket og været korrekt hver gang. En hund er jo ikke bare en hund, men et levende væsen der også kan have sin egen mening om tingene. Og eftersom at en hund er et flokdyr er det vigtigt at den ved at det er dig der er leder af flokken, ellers tager den “magten” og mener at det er den der bestemmer.

Få hjælp af en veluddannet træner eller adfærdsbehandler! Det er vejen til at forstå din hunds bevæggrunde og motivation, analysere de svære situationer og få professionel guidning ift. bl.a. mål og delmål, timing, håndtering af forskellige typer belønninger, kommunikation med din hund og hvordan I kan arbejde med at ændre adfærden. Så kan man få lagt en god trænings/behandlingsplan og få rådgivning undervejs i processen.

Det er muligt, det er mig, som er lidt tungnem, men hvorfor man i ”Vi med Hund” bruger to hele sider på at fortælle, at man endelig ikke må sige fra overfor sin hvalp, – at man skal iklæde sig en ”rustning” i form af handsker og trøjer flere gange dagligt – for dernæst at brug yderligere tre sider med at komme med et eksempel på, at denne fremgangsmåde slet ikke virker – ja, dét kan da undre. Disse artikler virker i den grad så selvmodsigende, og man næsten kan få en ide om, at Irene Jarnved her kører efter devisen ”Hvorfor gøre en adfærdsbehandling nem, når det nu kan gøres så besværligt”.

Alle hunde, uanset race, har brug for at være sammen med dig for at trives. Hunden nedstammer fra ulven, der lever i flok og gennem samarbejde mellem flokkens medlemmer er i stand til at nedlægge byttedyr, som er større end den selv. Ulvene i en flok er derfor afhængige af hinanden, og der knyttes stærke bånd mellem dem. Vore hunde har også denne tilbøjelighed til at knytte bånd til medlemmerne i den flok, som de er en del af – altså vores familie.

Kedsomhed & ensomhed: Selvom kun de færreste tamme hunde i dag lever i selskab med deres artsfæller, er hunde i grunden flokdyr, som har behov for en vis social kontakt. Hunde der lever alene eller efterlades alene i perioder, begynder derfor ofte at gø overdrevet. I disse tilfælde er den manglende social kontakt årsagen til, at hunden keder sig eller ligefrem er ulykkelig

Hvordan vil du som hundeejer gerne have, at din hund opfører sig? Er det vigtigere, at den kan gennemføre en dæk på træningspladsen, end at den kan sidde stille ved din side, mens du taler med naboen? For den svenske hundeekspert, Eva Bodfäldt, er svaret indlysende – et godt samspil i hverdagen er nummer et.

De foretrukne ting at bide i er puder, sko og forskellige møbler som stoleben, så det er vigtigt at lære hvalpen, hvad den må bide i, og hvad den ikke må. Den er jo ikke født med et gen, som hedder “må ikke bide i børnenes hjemmesko”.

Bark Control

“how to stop dog from barking at door free dog barking sound”

Dog cameras like Petcube Bites let you not only know when your dog is barking, but let you correct it using two-way audio, and distract them using a laser pointer or treats. A pet treat camera can be a great way to stop your dog from barking even when you’re not at home. Some cameras even have “bark alerts” that send you push notifications every time your dog makes noise so that you can address the problem before your neighbors get angry.

     2.    Territorial/Defensive Barking.  Barking at the postman or other dogs walking past your house. Most dog owners will experience this type of dog barking and often encourage it to keep intruders from the house.

When your dog can consistently stay in a sit or a down on his spot for 30 seconds, while you turn away and walk to your front door, you can start to introduce some distractions. Tell your dog to stay, and then do something distracting. At first make your distractions mild. For example, start by bending down or doing a single jumping jack. Over many sessions of training, gradually intensify your distractions to things like running a few steps or tossing a treat on the floor. Reward your dog quickly after each distraction for holding the stay. If he breaks the stay, quickly say “Uh-uh,” ask him to sit or lie down on his spot, and try again. When your dog can stay while you do all sorts of distracting things, ask him to stay while you go to the front door of your home and pretend to greet someone there. Your goal is for him to learn to stay the entire time you’re at the door.

As previously mentioned, there are many reasons why dogs bark. Sometimes it is to warn of danger, but it could also be a sign that something is wrong with your pet. WebMD explains the many reasons for dogs barking:

Some jurisdictions will act on anonymous complaints, while others require your name and address but won’t reveal this to the neighbor complained about. Check the public or private status of making a complaint before making it.

Many of the “humane” methods are humane to humans. Those standards shouldn’t apply to animals. Citronella in the eyes is as painful as a quick shock. What we might prefer is not the same as what a dog might. The beauty of the shock collar is that it is over quickly, and animals (generally) learn fast. So while trying to work it out in a way that a human would prefer may work, for dogs that are persistent and stubborn barkers, these collars are quick and effective trainers. And, that method may have more to do with you and what you can stomach than what an animal might actually suffer from.

When your dog barks do you have the tendency to yell something like “NOOOOOOO” or “STOOOPPP?” While you think you’re telling your dog to stop barking, they just think you’re joining in. So yelling won’t do you much good. Instead, when your dog starts barking inappropriately it’s important to stay calm. Develop a signal that alerts your dog to stop barking. That signal could be a look, sound, or physical correction. Below, I will go over the “quiet” command. 

“Barking is driven by a whole bunch of things,” says Dr. Kristina Spaulding, a certified applied animal behaviorist from upstate New York, “and while some dogs don’t bark much, they’ll sometimes find other ways to show their emotions or signal that they want something—like pawing at you, jumping, mouthing, stealing things, or finding other ways to get into trouble.”

Go for a walk around the block with your dog on leash. Use the interrupt when he’s sniffing a bush, or eyeing garbage in the gutter. Start with mild to moderate real-life distractions if possible, but if a major distraction presents itself, including a stimulus that causes him to bark, give it a try!

Who among us hasn’t smiled at our dogs howling at the sound of a fire truck siren speeding past? The howl, which sometimes speaks of a dog’s distress, is also a communal conversation. Dogs often howl in groups, and some owners delight in teaching their dogs to howl on cue, by howling – or singing – themselves. “Group howl” is a popular activity of wild dogs, and of many humans around the campfire at dog camps. Try it – you and your dog might enjoy it!

Genetics play a role in your dog’s predisposition to barking. If she’s a hound or hound mix, you’re likely to be treated to a certain amount of baying; Chihuahua owners should accept the likelihood of yapping, and so on.

Is your neighbor’s dog keeping you up all night? It’s time to take action. The fastest and best way to end the noise is usually to speak to your neighbor face to face to work out a good solution. If that isn’t effective, get law enforcement involved to solve the problem for you. In the meantime, try using a dog whistle or another method to help the dog stay quiet.

If your dog barks all day because he is bored, try leaving him with puzzles or games that take a while to figure out in order to get to the treat. If the dog’s separation anxiety is intense, you may need to call on a trainer or behaviorist for more advice.

With the ultrasonic bark collar the mechanism that sits against the dog’s throat sends out a very high pitched and unpleasant sound which is intended to deter nuisance barking. Bark collars can be a particularly difficult thing to fit to individual dogs and it is recommended that you discuss which bark collar is right for you with your veterinarian.

If your dog barks at things he sees out the window or front door, block the view. Close the blinds or curtains on the windows. If he can see out windows near the front door, Aga suggests covering them with darkening film you can buy from an auto parts store or even temporarily taping up some bubble wrap to block the view. If possible, confine the dog in a part of the house that doesn’t have windows or doors.

Shock collars are similar to citronella and ultrasonic collars, but instead deliver a brief electric shock to the dog’s neck. These collars typically have a number of different settings to change how intense the shock is, and if using one of these collars it is best to use the lowest setting possible to prevent injury to the dog. Again, these should only be used as an absolute last resort.[81]

To be successful with this method, you must wait as long as it takes for him to stop barking. If he barks for an hour and you finally get so frustrated that you yell at him to be quiet, the next time he’ll probably bark for an hour and a half. He learns that if he just barks long enough you’ll give him attention.

Medical problems that lead towards excessive barking are more common in the older dog. Canine senility can lead towards excessive vocalization. You want to take the dog to a vet and simply get him checked out. You might be faced with a case in which you want to deal with the barking and you use all the wrong techniques as the dog simply has a medical problem. He is telling you that he needs help in his very own way. Dogs cannot speak so they will bark. You want to really listen to the dog and you will need to take him to that routine checkup. How to stop a dog from barking

“do ultrasonic dog barking deterrents work will a dog whistle stop a dog from barking”

An idle dog can be a bad thing, and one of the best ways to keep your dog out of trouble is simply to keep them busy. Lots of time barking can be a sign of pent-up energy that has no other way to get out. The good news is there are lots of products to help you do this and even DIYs you can make that will engage your dog’s brain and body. Here are a few ideas you can start with without dropping a dime:

Ignore your dog’s barking for as long as it takes him to stop. That means don’t give him any attention at all while he’s barking. Your attention only rewards him for being noisy. Don’t talk to him, don’t touch him, and don’t even look at him. When he finally quiets, even to take a breath, reward him with a treat.

There are a number of products on the market that promise to stop barking quickly. Collars that go on your dog can deliver audible or ultrasonic corrections to your dog, but they aren’t effective on all dogs. Citronella-spraying collars often work, but some dogs learn they can run them out of spray and then bark at will.

Be very stern with your dog and jerk it away. Keep doors or curtains closed around the time the enemy dog walks by. Consider talking to the enemy dog’s owner to see if they can change their walking route.

You are exactly right. People who are lucky enough to not have a dog that barks a ridiculous amount don’t know the frustration of this problem for owners and neighbor. Pretty sweet to get a dog early enough to train it not to do this. Many dog owners have dogs that have already developed constant barking and something had to be done to be fair to the neighbors who are the biggest sufferers.

There are all sorts of devices that claim to stop barking. Most of them are some sort of collar that offer a negative response when a dog barks, such as an electric shock, a spray of citronella or a burst of static electricity. Talk with a trainer or behaviorist before considering one of these devices. If used incorrectly, they can cause more problems. For example, if your dog gets shocked every time he barks at a neighbor, he could associate the pain with the neighbor instead of the barking.

You don’t seem to understand that some people have dogs they didn’t get as puppies. Some dogs require special training like this just like people do. Not all dogs can be trained to not bark incessantly. Lucky you if that has been your experience.

This is caused by one of two reasons. It could be an “I want to get to you but can’t” situation, such as when a dog is on lead or at the other side of the road, which is known as ‘frustration-related barking’. Or, it could be a “GO AWAY, you are scaring me” situation, also known as ‘fear-related barking’.

Playfulness/Excitement: This type of barking is especially common in puppies and young dogs. Many dogs will bark while playing with people or other dogs. Even the sound of the bark tends to sound upbeat and possibly musical. Some dogs will bark excitedly when they know they are about to go for a walk or car ride.

Responding to Other Dogs: This is probably a familiar scenario. One dog down the street starts barking, and one by one the rest of your block joins in. It’s like a cacophonous rendition of Row Your Boat.

As your dog learns that silence is rewarded with treats and barking is ignored, you’ll need to gradually extend the period of time that your dog must be quiet before receiving a treat. For example, once she has passed the initial stages of getting a treat after the barking has stopped, you may want to prolong the required quiet time by a few seconds each day and work your way up to a minute or two before rewarding her.[10]

Stress-reducing collar – This is similar to the diffusers discussed earlier. Stress-reducing collars are loaded with soothing pheromones that will help stressed dogs calm down and reduce anxious barking.

Reward good behavior. When your dog finally does stop barking, it’s important that you praise and reward her for her silence. Over time, your dog will learn that being silent and obedient will achieve greater results than acting out and barking.[7]

Then one day you decided not to get up and ignore the barking thinking this would nip the behavior in the bud. It did not work, your dog very likely barked even more than before. Why is this? It is because of the process of ”extinction burst”. Basically, your dog is thinking ”My owners this morning are not getting up as usual. I need to INCREASE, my barking in intensity and duration so they get up since just barking a little is not working”. She therefore barked more and perhaps you or somebody else in your family finally tired of hearing her, finally got up.

If your dog barks inappropriately, it is important to start by setting yourself a realistic goal. Planning for your dog to stop barking completely is not realistic – barking is a natural dog behaviour and dogs will bark – more or less, and largely depending on the breed – whether we want it or not. You can reduce the amount of barking, but stopping it will never be possible.

First of all, it’s important that you don’t get mad at the dog, as tempting as that may be. The dog is just being a dog and doing what dogs do. Instead, go to your neighbor directly. They may not be aware that there is a problem if the dog barks while they are away at work or out of the house, or they may already know the barking is an issue and are trying to work on it. Don’t make assumptions or accusations, and approach after you’ve had time to cool down.

For best results, vary the amount of time your dog must remain quiet before getting a treat. That way she won’t come to expect a treat after a certain duration of time, and the anticipation will keep her in quiet suspense. For example, after a few weeks of training, alternate between 20 seconds of silence, a whole minute of silence, and 30 or 40 seconds of silence.[11]

You love your dog to pieces, but is it too much to ask for them to shut up at night? If you’re trying to figure out how to stop your dog from barking at night, you know what a frustrating situation it is — especially when it seems like they are making noise for no apparent reason.

Teach “hush”: (helpful for territorial barkers and alarm barkers, as well as some excitement and play barkers) sometimes we want our dog to bark for a short time to alert us to people at the door, but many of us would like to be able to stop the barking after a few minutes. Teaching your dog the “hush” command can short-circuit a dedicated barker. The next time your dog barks at something, place a treat in your hand, walk up to your dog and put your hand in front of his nose so that he can smell the treat but can’t get to it. He should stop barking to sniff at your hand. Once he’s quiet and sniffing say “hush” and toss the treat a few steps away from him. Repeat the process until you can just say “hush”’ without needing the hand prompt in front of his nose, then give him a treat. In time, you should be able to say “hush” and your dog will abandon the barking and come to you for his reward for being quiet.

If the dog seems to be barking at nothing, he’s likely bored. Boredom, due to lack of exercise and mental stimulation, is probably the biggest reason for excessive barking. Think honestly about whether your dog is getting enough. How would you feel if you were locked up at home all day with no cell phone, tablet, computer or even television? Not even a book to read. You’d get bored pretty fast.

My 4 yr old neutered Bischon/ Maltese never stops barking unless he is eating or sleeping. I have 6 different collars to ” stop him from barking ” but none of them work !!! He is making me very stressed !!! I live across from my Superintendent.

It is understandable that a dog barking all the time can be annoying and even distressing, but if this happens when you are at home and you know that your dog is barking at something outside, try thanking it instead of what you may have one before. You are letting your dog know that you are aware of the situation and (most importantly) you are calm. This is vital in encouraging a dog to calm down. If you get animated and/or annoyed, the dog feels your adrenalin level rise too. The thing it is barking at must be a problem in that case.

(Now if you are thinking “Well that won’t work with our little Rover, he NEVER gives up”, then there are a lot of other tips and tricks which will convince even the most stubborn barking dogs that it’s best to be quiet, which I’ve added at the end.)

Use a silent dog whistle. There are mixed reviews on whether these devices work, but many have found success with them. Silent whistles make a sound that dogs can hear, but humans can’t, so your neighbors won’t even know you’re using it. Whenever the dog barks, blow the whistle. it may take a number of attempts, but eventually the dog will associate barking with the piercing noise of the whistle, and stop barking.

Trek to Teach is a nonprofit organization that sends fluent English speakers to teach in Nepal near the Himalayas. In addition to teaching, Trek to Teach strengthens local communities by helping schools build infrastructure, paint their classrooms, and find furniture.

To avoid this situation you need to leave a short or long line (as in the video above with the barking dog) on them so you can take control quickly and calmly when you need it. At the same time your dog still gets to run around.

Unlike the separation anxiety panic attack, this is simply an “I WANT IT!” style temper tantrum similar to demand barking, but with more emotion, and directed at the thing he wants, such as a cat strolling by, rather than at you.

Dogs love to be outside, and the walk is a stimulating and exciting part of their day, so the desire to push ahead is very strong. Humans do not make ideal walking partners since a dog’s natural and comfortable walking pace is much faster than ours. Having to walk calmly by a person’s side when the only thing a dog really wants to do is run and investigate his environment requires a degree of impulse control that can be very difficult for some dogs to utilize.

Discontinue reinforcement. Also called “attention-seeking barking,” request barking is a common problem for dog owners. The first step to breaking a dog’s request barking is to stop giving your dog what she wants whenever she barks. This will, of course, take some time to train out of your dog, especially if has been “rewarded” for her barking over many years.[1]

The sound of barking dogs in the neighborhood can quickly go from nuisance to nightmare, especially when you are trying to sleep or concentrate. If you are comfortable with it, try politely approaching your neighbor to discuss the matter, or write a direct but civil letter. You may try gently suggesting a local dog trainer or behaviorist. Many people prefer to contact the neighborhood association or another group to act as a moderator. As a last resort, you may need to call the police. However, keep in mind how this could be detrimental to your future relationship with your neighbors. On the other hand, you may not even care about that after a certain amount of sleep deprivation. How to stop a dog from barking

Compulsive barkers bark just to hear the sound of their own voices. As with dogs suffering from separation anxiety, they will often make repetitive movements, such as running in circles or pacing along a fence.

In general, a no-bark dog collar is able to detect barking by sensing vibrations in the dog’s vocal chords. When this occurs, the collar provides a stimulus to the dog, warning him that this is the consequence for barking. All three of the no-bark collars fit snuggly against your dog’s neck when they are fitted correctly. It is increasingly important both for safety and for proper training that this collar is fitted by a professional or by an experienced dog owner.

If your dog barks at people or other dogs during walks, distract him with special treats, like chicken, cheese or hot dogs, before he begins to bark. (Soft, very tasty treats work best.) Show your dog the treats by holding them in front of his nose, and encourage him to nibble at them while he’s walking past a person or dog who would normally cause him to bark. Some dogs do best if you ask them to sit as people or dogs pass. Other dogs prefer to keep moving. Make sure you praise and reward your dog with treats anytime he chooses not to bark.

Block the dog’s view. If the dog barks every time it sees movement, blocking its view of your movements might help. Increase the height of your fence or close off areas where the dog sees movement. If the dog is being set off by your cats or other pets moving in the yard at night, this might be enough to quieten the dog.

Most the dog bark collars are climate resistant such that it is going to still work even when your dog is out within the rain. To make sure that a pet owner can operate the collar properly, instructional DVDs are often included in the package.The ideal part in using a collar to train a barking dog would be the affordability.

Barking can be a nuisance both for you and your neighbours. It can also be a sign that your dog is bored or anxious. There are a number of solutions for barking dogs that avoid the use of punishing anti-bark collars and will help you to achieve peace.

It may be time to get some earplugs for these first few sessions, especially if let them train you to come when they bark. Completely ignore them and let them bark until they take a break. Then, when they are quiet, treat and reward them or let them out for quiet behavior.

Possibly it is legal but it is most certainly not advised. Think about it — how long does it take to eat the biscuits? Because as soon as they’re gone, the barking starts again. And you’ve just reinforced the behavior you’re wanting to extinguish. Also, food is only useful as a training tool in the hands of someone who understands proper timing of rewards and is actually actively training the dog. A dog that nuisance barks is trying to communicate — boredom, anxiety, discomfort, loneliness, etc. The cause of the barking needs to be assessed and addressed by a trainer — who could be the owner or just someone who cares about dogs. Talk to the neighbor first.

This is what’s generally known as “Separation Anxiety” because your dog after separation becomes anxious. I should add here that this stress results not only in barking, but can also manifest in destructive behaviour, chewing, injuring themselves, escaping, and excessive digging.

One thing is don’t allow it. Just turn around and go the other way as soon as your dog starts in. Avoidance goes a long ways with leash aggressive dogs. also……..check our leash aggression advice on this site and utube. there is a wealth of info out there on this subject.

The positive interrupt is a well-programmed, highly reinforced behavior that allows you to redirect your dog’s attention back to you when she’s doing something inappropriate like barking. Ideally, you want your dog’s response to the “Over here!” cue to be so automatic – classically conditioned – that he doesn’t stop to think whether what he’s doing is more rewarding or interesting than turning his attention toward you and running to you for a treat. He doesn’t think – he just does it, the way your foot automatically hits the brake of your car when you see taillights flash in front of you on the highway.

Recognize compulsive/boredom barking. If your dog barks compulsively for no reason, or tends to bark when she’s left alone (in the yard, for example), she may be engaging in boredom barking. Dogs that bark when left alone may be experiencing separation anxiety, but there are usually other symptoms which accompany that problem, like destructive behavior, bathroom problems, and following you around when you’re home. Common signs of compulsive or boredom barking include:

Once you discover the true reason for the behavior, you can begin to learn how to get a dog to stop barking. The method that you use to stop the behavior will vary depend on the reason why your dog is making the nuisance noise in the first place. Don’t worry, I’ll explain everything you need to know about learning how to get a dog to stop barking in this article.

My dog Ralph is my best friend, my favorite companion, and one of the barkiest dogs I’ve ever met. I love her, but I’ll be honest, her barking drives me bananas! Thankfully, I’ve learned a few ways to control it. If you have a dog who barks excessively, you’ll want to read this. Try these four strategies to help stop dog barking—with more details below:

How to stop a dog from barking

“dog barking deterrents motion detector barking dog”

Ignore your dog’s barking for as long as it takes him to stop. That means don’t give him any attention at all while he’s barking. Your attention only rewards him for being noisy. Don’t talk to him, don’t touch him, and don’t even look at him. When he finally quiets, even to take a breath, reward him with a treat.

Before you call the trainer though, based on the situation you are in, there are some pretty simple things that you can try. The fact that the dog barks too loud or too often may be a sign that he wants you to understand something. It is really important that you do all that you can to identify the cause.

If the dog seems to be barking at nothing, he’s likely bored. Boredom, due to lack of exercise and mental stimulation, is probably the biggest reason for excessive barking. Think honestly about whether your dog is getting enough. How would you feel if you were locked up at home all day with no cell phone, tablet, computer or even television? Not even a book to read. You’d get bored pretty fast.

Bark on command. Another approach that can work is to teach your dog to bark on command, or “speak,” and then command him to be quiet. If you use treats or even verbal praise – do wait a few seconds after dog has finished barking before rewarding him. What you don’t want him to think is that he is being rewarded for barking when really he is being rewarded for being quiet. To get him to bark initially you can have someone ring your doorbell or you can encourage him to bark by “barking” yourself. Have him on a leash during the exercise so that you can distract and stop the barking with a light pop of the leash. To make the response even better teach your dog that he can bark at the doorbell but then must be quiet and go to a place near the door where he can watch who is at the door and allow them to come in. This can give a very effective security touch to a home. Dog barks, owners says “Quiet,” and he stops barking, showing he is under control. When the door is opened he is sat watching and waiting for anything that could be a threat. One word – “Speak” – has him barking again. So by teaching the commands – “Speak,” “Quiet,” and “Place,” – you have a dog that is both under control, yet ready to give a warning or even threaten if required.

You want to try to block the dog from hearing the sounds. Since you obviously cannot sound proof your entire apartment, a great solution is to buy a fan and leave it on. In most cases this is more than enough to distract the dog and the sound made will stop him from hearing what happens on the outside. If this fails, you can turn on your radio and leave it like that when you are not home. The dog will be intrigued and can often remain near the radio and listen to what is said there, with zero focus to the outdoors.

Another reason wild dogs bark less than our own furry family members is that they are less likely to be subjected to environments that encourage barking, such as fenced yards with potential prey objects (skateboards, joggers, bicycles) speeding tantalizingly past just out of reach; or humans who inadvertently – or intentionally – reinforce barking.

Work on pre-departure anxiety by exposing your dog to your various departure cues, like putting on a coat or picking up/jingling your keys. Try engaging in these behaviors at various times throughout the day without actually leaving the house.[28]

Food puzzle toys and hollow rubber toys that can be stuffed with treats are great entertainment for dogs. They give your something fun to do while you are gone. Keep a couple on hand so you can leave one for him every day. It’s okay if he gets most of his meals this way. He’s working for his food!

Omg, thank you so much of what you wrote. I bought today the collar and I was feeling so so bad, that almost cry and then someone in the office told me that I was crazy doing that, that my dog will be suffer, and almost died.

Interesting, what if your dog barks at everyone, everything, and sometimes nothing at all beyond the fence line in our yard? Sometimes he just runs around the house barking, doesn’t matter how much exercise he gets, doesn’t matter if I teach him quiet and give him treats, he will bark at people, dogs, squirrels, the air immediately when he’s outside driving neighbors nuts I’m sure.

Chewing causes the release of happy hormones in dogs, so giving your dog something to chew as you leave the house is a good routine to get into. If your dog tends to bury things or is reluctant to chew, just give a small amount of breakfast, so your dog is hungry enough to want to chew. Use something large such as a pigs ear or Kong® stuffed with treats so it lasts for a while. You can also put dry food into an old plastic drink bottle, and let your pet work to get the food out. For some great ideas for homemade chew toys check out this article on The Bark Post.

your story sounds like mine. I am wondering how it all turned out? Did the collars work? Any advice before I get one (two actually, the playmate learned to bark , just like yours, even louder). We are losing friends and have to take the big step

Desensitize your dog to solitude. If your dog has moderate to severe separation anxiety, she most likely will not be cured overnight. A good way to get your dog more accustomed to solitude is to gradually desensitize her to being left alone and reinforce the fact that getting ready to leave does not mean abandonment. This is a slow process that will take several weeks of practice and consistency, but should prove effective for long-term results.[27]

While industry claims that no harm is done to the dog, obviously the stimulus, or sensation, provided by the no-bark collar is not something the dog likes. If it didn’t hurt them, they wouldn’t worry about barking freely despite the consequences. That being said, we don’t know of any severe injuries or deaths caused by no-bark collars, and if the dog learns not to bark, it won’t be shocked anymore. We can’t help but wonder how this is restraining some of dogs’ natural functions, however, or causing undue stress and anxiety. Furthermore, consider the fact that in Europe, electric shock no-bark collars are illegal.

An example of this is a dog barking outside in the yard unattended. One thing that works around here is I leash walk the Collie in the yard before taking him off leash. This gives Finn a chance to chill a bit and the squirrels a chance to flee, without the added satisfaction my dog gets of driving them away. For many of us, it means just not opening the dog and sending the dogs out to play in the yard unattended to bark. How to stop a dog from barking

Vi sætter vores hunde ind i en verden, den ikke har en chance for at forstå fuldstændigt. Vi får dem til at følge nogle regler, som ikke er naturlige for dem. Det mindste vi kan gøre er, at være en god guide og mentor for dem. Det betyder, at vi lader dem vide, hvem der er lederen/mentor. Lad nu være med at overføre dine negative følelser over på mig på grund af denne bemærkning, fordi du måske har en træls/dårlig chef på dit arbejde.

Desværre har det ingen effekt på lige netop min hund – men det er jo nok ikke halsbåndets skyld. Hundens gøen er udløst af stress og af konkurrence med mine andre hunde, så jeg har valgt at løse problemet ad anden vej. Men det var interessant at prøve med halsbåndet.

Du behøver ikke at sætte dig ind i din bil og køre et andet sted hen. Det kan blot være i et andet rum eller et andet hjørne af parken eller din have. Det kan fx være, at du gerne vil træne din hund i at hoppe op på et bord, men du kan ikke få den til det.

244 Stede ved Bryllupper og tog Suppe af fad ene, uden at Gæsterne vidste, hvor den blev af, og lignende Spilopper drev de jævnlig. En Aften sildig kom en Mand over Stakkelhøi efter Hagenbjærg til. Og da han var midt paa Højen, hørte han en Stemme derinde sige:»no is Pippe Kong dodt«. Manden havde Ærinde ind i en Oaard i Hagenbjærg, og da han kom ind, fortalte han, at han ude paa Stakkelhøj havde hørt en sige:»no is Pippe Kong dodt.«da hørte folkene i Huset en Røst, der i forskrækkelse raabte:» Is Pippe Kong dodt! «Og da de skulde se sig for, fandt de ved Øltønden en prægtig Sølvkande. Og de kunde da regne ud, at en af Ynnevæsteiet var kommet til Gaarden for at stjæle Øl, og da han saa hørte Mandens fortælling, havde han fa aet saa travlt med at komme bort, at han havde glemt sin Ølkande. – Efter den Tid forsvandt Ynnevæstøjet fra Stakkelhøi, og Egnens folk kunde have baade Suppe og Øl i fred. Sølvkanden skænkede Oaardens Ejer til Hagenbjærg Kirke, hvor den bruges som Alterkalk. En Aften silde red en Karl fra det gamle Stavnsbøl til Kettinz, Da saa han i Nærheden af Blæsborg Mølle en Kæmpehøj tæt ved Vejen staa paa fire gloende Støtter, og nedenunder morede Dværgene sig med Dans og Lystighed. Da han var midt ud for Højen, kom en af Iløltolkene løbende hen til ham, standsede Hesten og bød ham at drikke af et Sølvbæger. Karlen tog mod Bægeret, men han slængte dets Indhold bagud over Hesten. Han galopperede nu af Sted, alt hvad han kunde, med det tomme Bæger; men de underjordiske forfulgte ham, til han kom til Ketting Kirkegaard. Der frelste han sig ind for dem, og de maatte nu lade Karl og Bæger være; for de havde ikke Magt til at komme ind paa den viede Jord. Da Høitolkene var forsvundet, red han hjem med sit Bæger. Da han næste Dag skulde se til sin Hest, lagde han Mærke til, at der paa dens Bag var et Par Pletter, hvor Haarene var svedet af; han forstod, at det var sket, fordi et Par Draaber af Bægerets Indhold var faldet der. – I sin Glæde over at være frelst, skænkede han Bægeret til Kirken. Det bruges endnu som Alterkalk.

Alle hunde, uanset race, har brug for at være sammen med dig for at trives. Hunden nedstammer fra ulven, der lever i flok og gennem samarbejde mellem flokkens medlemmer er i stand til at nedlægge byttedyr, som er større end den selv. Ulvene i en flok er derfor afhængige af hinanden, og der knyttes stærke bånd mellem dem. Vore hunde har også denne tilbøjelighed til at knytte bånd til medlemmerne i den flok, som de er en del af – altså vores familie.

139 lille formaningstale. Derpaa kørte ‘man igen hjem, og her, som oftest i den Gaard, hvor de i fremtiden skulde bo, holdtes et Gilde, der var som et lille Bryllup; det kaldtes Fæstet, fæsteøl. foruden Præstens og Degnens familier var ogsaa en stor Del af Familien paa begge Sider og de fleste af Byens Folk indbudne. Man fik Suppe, Oksekød med brun Sovs og Peberrod til og bagefter Risengrød; længere hen fik man Kaffe, spadserede ud i Byen og Marken, og henimod Aften dansedes der. Førend Gæsterne tog hjem, opvartedes med kold Skinke, kold Steg og Brød. – I andre Sogne gjorde man mindre Stads af det. – Bruden blev som oftest nu i den Gaard, hvor hun skulde bo i Fremtiden, og det samme var Tilfældet med Brudgommen, naar han friede sig ind paa en anden Gaard. Der blev nu lyst tre Søndage i Rad, og i den anden Uge herefter blev der holdt Bryllup. Den sidste Søndag, Lysningen fandt Sted, var begge de Forlovede i Kirken;»de skulde hen at høre, at de faldt ned fra Prædikestolen«. I 1730’erne udkom der en forordning for Sønderjylland og Holsten om, at trolovede skulde plante Træer. Om dette er der endnu Minder flere Steder paa Als; ved Nygaard paa Keinæs var det saaledes et Sted, der hed Bøgehoved; her plantede nyforlovede i Omegnen hver en Bøg, og Folk, der nu vilde have været over 100 Aar, om de havde levet, har fortalt, at det gjorde man ogsaa i deres Bedsteforældres Tid. Man mener, at det er efter denne Beplantning, at Stedet har faaet Navnet Bøgehoved. Det ser ud til, at der endnu er Spor af, at der har været opført en Jordvold og gravet en Grav om denne Bøgeplantning. – I Sønderskov ved Sønderborg var det Skik at plante Ege, naar man blev trolovet. Der staar nogle af dem endnu. E Kost (Bryllupet) stod som Regel hos Brudens Forældre. Otte Dage før Brylluppet blev der bedt til Gilde. I meget gammel Tid holdtes det for det meste om Søndagen. Senere blev det almindeligt, at Brylluppet holdtes i Sønderherred mest om fredagen, i Nørreherred mest om Torsdagen. Havde Bruden en ugift Broder var han altid Kostmand (Bydemand) eller Broldsmand (Bryllupsrnand). Han kaldtes ogsaa første Kostmand i Modsætning til anden Kost-

En af de mest almindelige grunde til at en hund gør, er for at advare sin ejer. Hvis din hund ser nogen nærme sig huset, vil han gø for at give dig besked. Da den ser dig som lederen af flokken, vil den have, at du undersøger det.

75 sat ind til op paa Dagen. Naar der saa blev Tid, kogtes der noget haard Vandgrød af Byggryn; der rørtes Blodet i; nogle hakkede Løg og nogle Kryderier blev rørt i Grøden sammen med Salt. Imidlertid havde Slagteren Iaaet Skindet trukket af de slagtede f aar, og de hængtes saa op paa Kroge ved Hjælp af en Svingel, der var stukket gennem Bagbenene. Indvoldene toges ud paa flade Trug, og saa maatte vi skynde os at faa dem skilt ad, før de blev kolde. Alle de tynde Tarme kunde hales, og det kunde gaa rask, naar man var forsigtig. Tarmene blev saa omhyggeligt rensede og lagt i Vand, hvori man kom en Visk af Suppeurter, Laurbærblade og Salt. Der var en tyk Tarm, der var lukket i den ene Ende; den blev omhyggeligt skrabet med en Kniv, og den blev stoppet med noget af Kødet, mest Hjørner og Trevler, der blev skaaret fra ved de Stykker, der skulde røges. – Al Kødpølsemaden. blev, før man fik Kødhakkemaskine, hakket med en Økse og sakset med en Sakser, en Krumkniv, hvorefter der kom Kryderier, især Peber, Salt og lidt Salpeter, i, og derefter blev det dygtig æltet. Det blev saa stoppet i de Tarme, der havde staaet i Vand. Naar de blev godt fast stoppet og saltet nogle Dage og derefter røget, var det rare Pølser at have til Brødet om Sommeren. Lungerne af faarene brugtes ikke; men Hjærter, Nyrer, Lever og hvad Kød der sad ved Indvoldene blev kogt, hakket, æltet med Krydderi og Salt, lidt af Greverne og dygtig med Løg, og saa blev det stoppet til en Slags Pølse, der spistes frisk (fersk) og smagte ganske godt paa Brød. – Somme Tider blev Indvoldsmaden skaaret i Smaastykker og sammen med Maverne sat hen i en Potte med fedt og Eddike, og det blev spist til Kartofler. I Maverne skar vi for det meste et Hul paa den ene Side og fik Urenheden ud; saa vendte vi dem og syede dem til; de blev puttede i Kalkvand, hvor de stod en halv Times Tid, saa kunde man skrabe dem godt rene. Og saa kunde de stoppes med Pølsemad. – Hen paa Eftermiddagen kom Slagteren igen og skar de slagtede Dyr i Stykker. Om Af-

This tastefully designed tabletop device can help safely control your dog’s barking from up to 25 feet away. Whenever your pal barks, a 2-second ultrasonic tone correction can be delivered either automatically or manually – your choice. No receiver collar is necessary, but your furry friend will learn to associate his barking behaviour with the unpleasant sound (that only he can hear) in no time.

Hvis du er i tvivl om, hvad du skal gøre, eller træningen ikke lykkes, er det vigtigt, at du søger hjælp – for eksempel hos en adfærdsbehandler eller en dyrlæge med erfaring i adfærdsbehandling. Husk på, at tvangshandninger altid kræver behandling af en dyrlæge.

Hej Jeg har for nogle mdr. siden købt et halsbånd til vores hund og kan på det varmeste anbefale det. Nu står jeg dog i et kæmpe dilemma for batteriet er brugt op. Jeg har søgt i rigtig mange butikken og via nettet uden held……Øv. Hvor køber jeg et nyt batteri? Venligst Gitte Mikkelsen

Det er meget individuelt hvad der skal til for den rette stimulering, men som tommelfingerregel kan man undlade de vilde ting, så som at kaste med bolde og pinde, lege trækkelege og andre vilde lege med hunden. Ikke at det må gøres, men blot skabe en sund balance mellem noget hovedarbejde, hvor hunden skal bruge sin næse eller tænke og løsninger – helst dobbelt så lang tid som der bruges på de vilde ting.

Bark Control

“dog barking prevention device dog barking at baby”

Respected trainer and president of Legacy Canine Behavior & Training Inc, Terry Ryan, explains in her book ”The Toolbox for Building A Great Family Dog” Once you recognize what the rewards are (in your case getting up and feeding) and take them away, the behavior will likely increase immediately. This is known as an ”extinction burst”. In plain words, Gus will get worst before he gets better. It might be frustrating, but take it as a good sign. It’s working! You’ve got his number! Stay the course and the behavior will drop off over time.”.

Unfortunately, this is one of the most used methods to get dogs to stop barking. In case you are not aware of this, a shock dog collar is a special collar that includes a remote. You use the remote to practically shock the dog when he does something wrong. Some people use it to correct barking. The problem is that this is not going to work. The dog will not actually understand why he is shocked and will only know that he has something around the neck that is hurting him.

Is your neighbor’s dog keeping you up all night? It’s time to take action. The fastest and best way to end the noise is usually to speak to your neighbor face to face to work out a good solution. If that isn’t effective, get law enforcement involved to solve the problem for you. In the meantime, try using a dog whistle or another method to help the dog stay quiet.

Wait until your dog is engaged in a low-value activity – wandering around the room, sniffing something mildly interesting – then say your interrupt phrase in the same cheerful tone of voice. You should see an immediate interrupt in his low-value activity, as he dashes to you for his chicken. If he doesn’t, return to Step 1.

My dog Ralph is my best friend, my favorite companion, and one of the barkiest dogs I’ve ever met. I love her, but I’ll be honest, her barking drives me bananas! Thankfully, I’ve learned a few ways to control it. If you have a dog who barks excessively, you’ll want to read this. Try these four strategies to help stop dog barking—with more details below:

Warning/Alert: It is natural for a dog to bark when someone is a the door or when strangers pass the house or car. Many will bark if they sense some type of threat, proclaiming “I’m here protecting this place so don’t mess with me.” The sound of this bark is usually sharp, loud and authoritative. Honing this instinct with training can help protect your home and family.

Our dog recently started using an LED collar and we both love it. I am currently training for a marathon and running at night by myself fun or the smartest thing to do. Having my little one with me makes me feel better and the light up collar helps a lot. I did a lot of research, but wasn’t too happy with the prices. I ended up finding a great deal on the Eternity LED Glow website. $15.00 only! Great quality at a fantastic price! Perfect for keeping my little one safe on our walks/runs. They’re so affordable I might end up getting all seven.

Dogs want to and need to be busy. They have to be mentally challenged. Unfortunately, this is so much easier said than done. When he barks too much, it might be because he is bored and one way to solve this is to go for obedience training. The great thing about it is that he will also learn that Quiet command that you might have difficulties in training him. At the same time, training will help the both of you to establish a much stronger relationship as you will end up understanding each other at a whole new level.

Then one day you decided not to get up and ignore the barking thinking this would nip the behavior in the bud. It did not work, your dog very likely barked even more than before. Why is this? It is because of the process of ”extinction burst”. Basically, your dog is thinking ”My owners this morning are not getting up as usual. I need to INCREASE, my barking in intensity and duration so they get up since just barking a little is not working”. She therefore barked more and perhaps you or somebody else in your family finally tired of hearing her, finally got up.

Try counterconditioning your dog. Counterconditioning is a common treatment method for dogs that typically involves training the dog to associate something fearful with a reward. In the case of separation anxiety, instead of fearing someone or something, the dog fears being left alone. To counter condition  separation anxiety, you’ll need to train your dog to associate being left alone with something the dog enjoys (like treats).[23]

Anxiety or Fear: Dogs also bark when they are unsure or scared. They may use barking as they run away the same way a human would scream. They may also use sound as a defense mechanism to keep their attacker at a distance. Dogs learn early that the best defense is often a good offense.

If your dog most often barks territorially in your yard, keep him in the house during the day and supervise him when he’s in the yard so that he can’t just bark his head off when no one’s around. If he’s sometimes able to engage in excessive alarm barking (when you’re not around, for example), that behavior will get stronger and harder to reduce.

Why am I telling you this? Well, barking has to be the most annoying behaviour problem that is suffered by dog owners and neighbours alike. However, Karina in Copenhagen will be the first to tell you that she is glad that her dogs bark. Of course, it helps that she knows what to do to get them to stop barking so they do not become a neighbourhood nuisance. Here’s what she does… Are you ready?

The collar wasn’t used properly and you obviously weren’t interested in the welfare of your dog if you weren’t checking how it was affecting it. Sounds like the collar was on constantly without checking to make sure it wasn’t hurting the dog. Maybe you had it turned all the way up. A lower setting barely shocks.

There are also high-frequency noise emitters that you can place outside. These will respond to barking and emit a noise similar to the dog whistle. Hopefully this will correct the behavior. These solutions might work, but just be aware that other dogs that live nearby may also be bothered by the noise even if they aren’t the ones doing the barking.

Desensitize your dog to solitude. If your dog has moderate to severe separation anxiety, she most likely will not be cured overnight. A good way to get your dog more accustomed to solitude is to gradually desensitize her to being left alone and reinforce the fact that getting ready to leave does not mean abandonment. This is a slow process that will take several weeks of practice and consistency, but should prove effective for long-term results.[27]

Be very stern with your dog and jerk it away. Keep doors or curtains closed around the time the enemy dog walks by. Consider talking to the enemy dog’s owner to see if they can change their walking route.

HI Nat, we recommend a consultation with a qualified trainer to give you some tips on how to manage or change this behavior. It is impossible to give you good advice without seeing your pup’s behavior, I’m afraid.

Make arrangements for a friend or family member to watch your dog while you’re gone. Most dogs only experience separation anxiety if they are left completely alone. In other words, having anyone there will usually help.[41]

Get other neighbors to file the same complaint. If the authorities get multiple calls about the same dog owner, they’ll be more likely to take action quickly. There’s definitely strength in numbers in this situation, so rally as many people as you can to remedy the situation.[6]

Are you irritated when you have some medical problems that cause pain and discomfort? Do you find yourself shouting without being able to control it as that happens? The dog can have a similar problem. There are various different medical conditions that lead to excessive barking. The really common examples of that are bee stings and gum problems.

As the owner of four dogs, two of whom are very vocal, with a third quite willing to express himself on occasion, I can testify to the domestic dog’s ability to speak. Interestingly, while wild puppies bark, wild adult dogs rarely do, at least not to the degree our canine companions do.

Dogs are social animals, so it’s natural for them to bark when they hear others barking. You can discourage this tendency by keeping your dog indoors when other dogs are barking, by playing music to drown out the sound of other dogs, and by distracting your dog with treats or play when other dogs bark (whether it’s in real life or on TV).

If you have a pet, then chances are you have pet waste. As unpleasant and time consuming as pooper scooper duty may be, keeping doggie deposits off the ground is an important responsibility held by every pet owner. Here’s why: Dog waste is an environmental pollutant. According to estimates by the Environmental Protection Agency, two or READ MORE>>

What a shame to see you suggesting cruel methods such as citronella collars. Punishing and/or scaring a dog for barking is cruel and does not address the root issue(s). You should be encouraging people to actually _train_ their dogs (using scientifically valid, humane, force-free methods).

Dogs occasionally become compulsive barkers, meaning they bark in situations that aren’t considered normal or they bark in a repetitive, fixed or rigid way. If your dog barks repeatedly for long periods of time, apparently at nothing or at things that wouldn’t bother other dogs, such as shadows, light flashes, mirrors, open doors, the sky, etc., you may have a compulsive barker. If your dog also does other repetitive behaviors like spinning, circling or jumping while barking, he may be a compulsive barker. To help reduce compulsive barking, you can try changing how you confine your dog. For instance, if your dog is tied or tethered, you can switch to keeping him loose in a safe fenced area, or if he’s left alone for long periods of time, you should increase exercise, mental stimulation and social contact.

Chewing causes the release of happy hormones in dogs, so giving your dog something to chew as you leave the house is a good routine to get into. If your dog tends to bury things or is reluctant to chew, just give a small amount of breakfast, so your dog is hungry enough to want to chew. Use something large such as a pigs ear or Kong® stuffed with treats so it lasts for a while. You can also put dry food into an old plastic drink bottle, and let your pet work to get the food out. For some great ideas for homemade chew toys check out this article on The Bark Post.

Pay attention to the circumstances. Barking at the mailman teaches pups to repeat the behavior when your two-pound terror thinks, “My ferocious bark chased him away — I’m an awesome guard dog, beware!” You may want to enlist your mail carrier’s help — ask him/her to feed your pup a treat once he is quiet and praise him for being silent.

Crate training your puppy. A puppy barking in his crate may stop if covered with a cloth sheet so he is not stimulated to bark by what he sees. With a cover over it, the crate also feels more like a den and hence more secure. Some puppies will stop barking if allowed to sleep in their crate next to the owners’ bed, or with a belonging that smells of the owner or their siblings. When your puppy is in the crate do get to know the sounds he makes and unless it is an emergency for the bathroom do not go and open the crate or let the puppy out when the puppy barks. If you do he will learn to bark demanding to be let out and in this way tell you what to do. Sometimes a squirt bottle of water can be used to direct a spray at a puppy that barks in the crate but I have seen dogs that enjoy this too and make a game out of it. Plus, it can make quite a mess.

It also helps to teach your dog a specific set of behaviors to do when people come into your home so that he has fewer opportunities to alarm bark. Plus, when your dog performs his new behaviors and receives rewards, he’ll learn that people coming into his and your space is a good thing.

There was the time I was engrossed in writing an article and our dogs were alarm-barking ferociously. Resisting the urge just to tell them to stop, I reluctantly got up to investigate. No, the house wasn’t on fire, but I did find our horses running down the driveway toward the road.

When they bark, simply say something like “Thank You”, in a VERY gentle voice (rather like you would whisper in somebodies ear). Then if they continue with the barking, go and take a look out the window and again say “Thank You” again very softly, before walking away. (Now I know this may seem odd, BUT it makes total sense to your dog – I promise!)

Problem: lack of nutrients in his diet – Dogs that have parasites or worms do not digest food properly, because the parasites consume many of the nutrients. Dogs may try to re-digest the food to get all of the nutrients they can from it.

Learning how to stop a dog from barking doesn’t have to be a strenuous process. Sure, it’s a challenge to stop dog barking, but most importantly, through all of these techniques, you have to remember that just as there are some great ways to treat dog barking, there are definite ways NOT to treat it. Because frustration and boredom are often at the heart of incessant barking, scolding your dog won’t do anything. Agitation won’t be fixed with more agitation, so try to speak to your dog in a soothing voice and don’t let your anger over the situation get the best of you.

Outside, you might consider putting slats in the chain link fence to cut down on his visual access to the world surrounding his yard (better yet, install a privacy fence) or put up an interior fence to block his access to the more stimulating parts of the yard. Given that alarm barking will inevitably occur, it’s also useful to teach him a positive interrupt – a cue, other than “Shut up!” that you can use to stop him in mid-bark. (See “The Positive Interrupt,” to the right of this page.) How to stop a dog from barking

“constant barking dog neighbor barking dog song”

Keep greetings low key. Teach your dog to sit and stay when meeting people at the door so that he has something to do instead of barking. This will reduce his excitement level. First teach him to sit and stay when there aren’t any people at the door so that he knows the behavior well before you ask him to do it with the distraction and excitement of real visitors arriving.

Do not encourage your dog to bark at sounds, such as pedestrians or dogs passing by your home, birds outside the window, children playing in the street and car doors slamming, by saying “Who’s there?” or getting up and looking out the windows.

Attention-seeking: When you hear this bark, you will usually know just what it means. This bark says “Hey! Hey! Look! Here I am!” Other dogs may whine and bark together to get attention, almost like the tone of a whining child.

The two dogs (Jack Russell mix) that do this are related-by-blood, they’re brothers from the same litter (aged 7yrs) and they get on well…They’re both hyper active and easily excitable. The third is a recent addition to the family, he’s a pure-bred Jack Russell (8 months) and he’s a lot more calmer than the brothers. I have no problems with him on the lead but I would love to walk them as a group, something I used to do years ago before the brother’s hyper-barking became too much. :/

Remember, to a dog barking is often an escalation of other forms of communication. Therefore, just like you don’t want to reward a puppy for barking to get your attention, you also don’t want to reward them for lesser forms of negative noises like whining or growling.

I have a 5 yr. old rough coated collie who barks very loud and consistently every tine I am talking on the telephone I at first thought he wanted attention but that’s not the case. When I am finished talking he walks away and is quiet. Please someone help. I am tired of going into the bathroom and closing the door if it’s a important phone call ! Ugggg

Guarding: Dogs will often bark and growl when they are guarding. This bark is more aggressive. The dog may also have a stiff or wagging tail with their hackles raised. The bark is used as a warning not to come closer or they may attack to defend their space. While dogs don’t always bark before they bite, most give some kind of warning.

Self Identification: Dogs also bark to say, “Hey, I’m over here!” They usually do this in response to hearing their owner or when they notice another dog barking in the distance. Like wolves, they may also do this to let other dogs know that this house is their domain and to stay away. Or, they may vocalize to call other dogs over to them.

Dogs also bark when they’re either too cold or too hot. Many people have the misconception that dogs’ fur keeps them warm in subzero weather; it’s not the case, unless the dog is a husky. If you’ve seen the dog shivering or looking miserable in the heat of the day, tell your neighbor the dog could be barking because its uncomfortable.

Certain dog breeds bark more than others. In fact, some types of dogs were actually bred to be barkers. This may be so they could alert people about dangers, protect homes, or even scare prey out of hiding for hunters. On the flip side, the Basenji does not bark at all (though the breed can vocalize in other ways).

When your dog can consistently stay his spot for at least 30 seconds, with you standing in front of him, you can start moving toward the door. Say the cue “Go to your spot,” walk with your dog to his spot, ask him to sit or lie down and ask him to stay. At first, just turn your head away from your dog. Then turn back to give him a treat and release him from the stay. After a few repetitions, make things a little harder. After your dog is sitting or lying down on his spot, ask him to stay and then take one step toward the door. Return immediately, give your dog a treat and then release him from the stay with your release word or phrase. Gradually increase the number of steps that you take away from your dog and toward the door. Eventually you’ll be able to walk all the way to the door and back while your dog stays sitting or lying down on his spot. (Don’t forget to keep rewarding him for staying!) If your dog stands up or leaves his spot before you release him from the stay, say “Oops!” the moment he gets up. Then immediately tell him to sit or lie down on his spot again and stay. Wait a few seconds and then release him. You may have progressed too fast. Next time, make the exercise a little easier so your dog can succeed. Ask him to stay for a shorter period of time and don’t move as far away from him. When he’s successful at an easier level, you can gradually make the exercise harder again. Never end your dog’s stay from a distance. Instead, always return to him, say “Yes,” give him a treat, and then say “Okay” to release him.

See what works best for your dog and go from there! Use the same techniques below, but once you get your dog’s attention, move them into a room where they are more protected from the cause of the barking. It might also help your nervous dog to soothingly talk and pet him until he calms down.

The goal is to get your dog used to whatever it is that’s causing the barking. For example, if your dog barks at people outside the window then sit with him as he looks out the window. When someone approaches pull out the treats, tell him “quiet,” and wait for your dog to stop barking. When he does, praise him and give him a treat. Gradually increase the time he must be quiet before giving a treat. The goal here is to get your dog to associate the stimulus with positivity (rather than barking).  How to stop a dog from barking
