“gøre bark kontrol kraver virkelig arbejde hvordan man stopper en hund fra at gø en kat”

Grænsen sættes ved, at man som ejer går imellem sin hund og det, den gør af. Ved at gå imellem og lave en fysisk begrænsning indikerer vi med hundesprog, at dens adfærd ikke er ønsket, og at vi prøver at stoppe den. Hvis hunden kender og respekterer ordet “nej”, er det en god idé at understrege grænsen med et konsekvent, men IKKE råbende “nej”.

Vidste du, at når hvalpe bliver kønsmodne, når de er seks-syv måneder gamle, begynder de automatisk at holde vagt? Det gør de, og ejere, som ikke ved det og som opmuntrer deres hunde til at gø, ender med at have en hund, som gør ved hver given lejlighed, og det vil være så godt som umuligt at kontrollere det senere.

Det er svært at sige hvordan en hund ville være i naturen – for en hund er ikke et vildt dyr længere. Den stammer sandsynligvis fra ulven, så for at finde ud af hundens ’naturlige’ væremåde, så kigger man på ulven; Familiemæssigt ligner en ulveflok en menneskefamilie, den er et flokdyr og en flok består af mor, far og børn. Mor og far bestemmer fordi de er de ældste og dem med flest erfaringer. De har sjældent konflikter fordi deres overlevelsesevne afhænger af hvor gode de er til at samarbejde. Alle deltager i opdragelsen af hvalpene. De har sågar babysittere når de går på jagt, så hvalpene er aldrig ladt alene de første mange måneder – akkurat som vi ikke efterlader vores små børn til sig selv. Hvalpene må alt indtil de er 4-6 måneder gamle og er der knapt med føde, så fodres hvalpene altid først, da det er vigtigt at bevare de unge, som skal føre gener og generationer videre.

I denne periode får hvalpen sine første tænder og den vil begynde at undersøge ting med munden. Hvalpene vil nu selv kunne komme af med afføringen og har ofte en tendens til at gøre dette det samme sted som moderen.

Det er en grime, som du sætter rundt om hundens snude. Snoren fæstnes så nedenunder. Når hunden trækker, drejes hundens hoved, og den forhindres i at trække. Når du bruger en halti, må du ALDRIG trække i din hund, fordi du kan lave skader på den. Du skal heller ikke gå med sin hund i flexline, når den har haltien på, fordi det kan give samme ryk, når hunden bliver ivrig og løber fremad. Haltien er til at gå tur med på gader og veje.

Hunde adlyder helst ikke ledere, der er ude af balance. Undgå derfor at tabe besindelsen. Hvis du viser frustreret, vil din hund gøre det samme. Sørg derfor altid for at virke rolig og i balance, når du opdrager på din hund.

Og husk at det som regel tar litt lenger tid for dem å bæsje enn å tisse. Mange valper (hunder!) trenger «bæsjero». Så har du en valp som begynner å bli flink til å tisse ute, men bæsjer inne, så er dette sannsynligvis årsaken. Løsning: Vær ute lengre, og ikke gjør noe som får valpen gira mens dere er ute. Har du hage, så ta en runde rundt kvartalet. De fleste liker å tisse i hagen, men vil lenger bort for å bæsje – renslige som de en flok vil der derfor ofte være en leder, som tager initiativ til det, som der skal foregå i flokken. Der vil endvidere være rangorden blandt medlemmerne, som bestemmer, hvilke individer, som har forrang til de ressourcer, som der er knaphed på. Hos mange dyr er forholdet mellem medlemmerne i en flok dog ikke afgjort en gang for alle. Blandt hundene i en flok er det ikke altid den samme hund, der optræder som leder ved at tage initiativet, når der skal ske et eller andet. Desuden vil forholdet mellem hundene afhænge af den situation, som de er i, og deres indbyrdes rangorden kan ændre sig med tiden. Hvis en hund ikke længere vil acceptere dens position i flokken, vil dette midlertidigt give anledning til stridigheder inden for flokken.

Flere hundpsykologer beskriver, hvor meget roligere hunden bliver efter at have anvendt bältet et stykke tid. Effekten som gør at du kan stoppe hunden kommer med det samme. Den beroligende effekt kan tage lidt længere tid.

Det virker måske omvendt, men denne metode indledes med at du lærer din hund at gø på kommando. Giv hunden kommandoen ”tal” (eller et andet enkelt ord) og lad hunden gø et par gange, hvorefter du lader den snuse til en godbid, og når hunden så holder op med at gø, kan du give den godbiden. Dette gentages, indtil hunden har lært at gø på kommandoen ”tal” (eller andet). Nu kan du så lære din hund en ”stille”-kommando. Find rolige omgivelser og giv kommando for at gø. Når din hund så gør, skal du sige ”stille” (eller et andet enkelt ord som ikke minder om det andet ord for at gø) og placere en godbid foran hundens næse. Ros hunden, når den bliver stille og giv den godbiden.

Hunde forbinder alle slags følelser til bestemte områder (hvilket driver dem til at reagere), hvor der sker bestemte ting. Hvis du arbejder med en specifik problemadfærd, og den bliver stresset, eller den mister gejsten, flyt til et andet område og træn noget, din hund har nemt ved. Det vil give din hund en oplevelse af succes.

Uheld kan nemt opbygge en uheldig præcedens og derved skabe dårlige vaner, som kan være svære at bryde. Konsekvensen heraf er at du for enhver pris må forebygge uheld. Når du ikke er hjemme, efterlader du din hund i dens opholdssted – det sted, hvor I også, når du er hjemme, med regelmæssige mellemrum laver sjove og rare ting sammen og hvor hvalpen også bruger lidt tid alene, når du er hjemme, således at hvalpen ikke ser stedet som at skulle være alene. Alt dette for at skabe tryghed ved stedet. Stedet kan fx være et enkelt rum inden døre med gulve, der er nemme at rengøre (badeværelse, køkken eller bryggers) med barnegitter, trådnetdør eller lignende. Stedet kan også være en transportabel hvalpegård, hvori sættes en transportkasse som hule (uden låge). Giv din hund frisk vand og som beskæftigelse ca. 3-6 stykker tyggelegetøj fyldt med foder, en behagelig seng i et hjørne, og et hundetoilet i hjørnet diagonalt modsat fra sengen. Din hund vil naturligt ønske at gøre sig ren så langt væk fra sin seng som muligt og vil hurtigt udvikle en god vane i forbindelse med at benytte sit toilet.

If the problem barker is your own dog, you might be considering a training collar. Ultrasonic is an alternative option to citronella spray collars and of course, to cruel shock collars (which I NEVER recommend).

51 REDSKABER OG HUSDYR. Vore Markredskaber var efter gammel Skik. Ploven var jo en forældet, klodset Hjulplov. Det var helst en krumvokset Egegren, der blev dannet til Handved, til at holde Ploven ved; derigennem var der stemmet et langagtigt Hul, hvorigennem Bemen gik, og som var forsynet med 2 Kiler, Gamle Redskaber (Sønderborg Slot). en for oven og en underneden, saa at Bømen kunde kiles op og ned. Bømen var et temmelig langt Stykke, for det meste af Asketræ, bagtil firkantet og fortil rundt; bagtil var stemmet et langagtigt Hul til Sulen og lidt længere fremad et mere ligesidet Hul til Langlærnet: saa var der boret Huller i det runde Stykke af Bømen til at sætte Dvbstikken i, det var en Jernbolt, der brugtes til at holde Ploven fast ved Forploven. Paa Sulen var e Muldfjel fastheftet saaledes at den kunde hæves og sænkes; den holdtes i en vis Afstand fra e Handved med en Jærnvinkel for at give en fure.

Der er helt sikkert nogen former for gøen, hvor det kan betale sig at anerkende hunden siger til, når blot det ikke handler om kedsomheden. Men der hvor hunden faktisk siger ”hey, der kommer nogen”, kan det være godt at sige noget, for at fortælle hunden at man har hørt den siger til. Det er min oplevelse at det mest handler om inden døre, når nogen banker på eller er meget tæt på døren.

”Hvis man tager disse hensyn til forholdet mellem hund og barn, vil de med 100 procents sikkerhed komme til at elske hinanden,” siger Erik Døj. ”Hvis man derimod selv er så nervøs for, at det kan gå galt, og man hele tiden vil gribe ind på en forkert måde, så skal man nok nøjes med barnet og droppe tanken om hund, indtil barnet er vokset op.”

nej, gardere sig kan man ikke, men du kan jo ikke spise NOGET som helst, der ikke er skadeligt idag, noget bare mere skadeligt end andet, noget mere tydeligt end andet, noget med større risiko end andet, man må selv vælge, og jeg må sige at du kunne få GODE bøffer MEGET billigt sidste gang der var kogalskab, og jeg køber det gladeligt, for jeg får ellers sjældent en god bøf af oksekød, og hvem siger ikke jeg er blevet kørt ned, styrtet ned med fly, kvast i en togulykke eller dræbt i en lavine/jordskælv/tornado/syndflod inden da?

78 Hundredevis. Størstedelen af Vægerne lavedes af Garn, vi selv havde spundet og tvundet sammen. Paa hver Brikke blev de tolv Væger fastgjort. En lille Tønde, vel 6 Kvarter høj, blev fyldt nederst med kogende Vand og øverst med smeltet Talg – Talgen i en Tykkelse af omtrent 1 Kvarter. Deri dyppedes Vægerne. Naar de kun dyppedes 2-3 Gang, kaldte vi dem Praaser: de brugtes til at lyse rundt med under Arbejdet eller ved Skorstenen. De tykkere Lys, der var dyppet mange Gange, stilledes paa Bordet, naar vi spandt, og der Iaa en Lysesaks i Stagen, for at man kunde knibe Tanden af. Ogsaa i Lygterne brugtes Lys; saa blev et Lys gerne skaa ret over i tre Dele. Den første Petroleumslampe, jeg kan huske, havde en Sypige med, der gik rundt hos folk og syede Klær : det var en lille Køkkenlampe. Det var henved 1867, far købte os den første Lampe;.det var en lille en med Zinkfod, med flad Væge og med Kuppel. Vi havde den i mange Aar. Det var gerne henimod Jul, at Svinene blev slagtet. Naar Svinene skulde slagtes, blev den store Kedel Dagen forud fyldt med Vand, og der blev lagt Brændsel under Kedlen, saa vi kunde tænde straks om Morgenen. Hvis Vandet ikke kogte, naar Slagteren kom, var jeg ikke vel til Mode. Han kom i den tidlige Morgenstund og fik sin Davre med folkene, i Reglen med et Par Dramme til og senere en stor Kaffepuns, Der blev tilvejebragt et Lad til at lægge Slagtedyrene paa, og naar Slagteren saa stak Grisene, skulde vi naturligvis have Blodet, og der skulde passes godt paa, at det ikke løb sammen. Naar de saa skulde skoldes, lød der atter drøje Kornandoord fra Slagteren. Var Blodet kommet godt af Grisene, og var de skrabet fint rene og glatte, vankede der mange spøgefulde Ord fra Mesteren; men var det ikke rigtigt lykkedes, var det ikke godt at komme ham nær. – Svinekroppene blev indbaarne i Vaskerummet og ophængt under Loftet i en Svingle. Indvoldene blev taget ud, og vi fik travlt med at

NÅ! Nu til historien. Jeg kommer ud af min bil og Santos (Min hund) går uden snor på. Han plejer normalt altid at være i snor, men eftersom jeg skulle fra bilen og lige op til min mor (Der er 4 m.) fandt jeg det ikke nødvendigt – måske var det dumt, jeg ved det ikke helt. Vi kommer så gående hen imod opgangen og min hund går over på et stykke græs for at tisse. jeg står ved siden af ham og venter. Der kommer så en gammel mand ud og siger meget surt at hunden skal være i snor her. Jeg siger så, at det ved jeg godt, det plejer han også at være, men vi kom lige fra bilen af og skulle bare op. Han bliver så utrolig aggrasiv og står og råber´op og højt at min hund skal sku være i snor og om jeg kunne forstå det. Jeg bevare roen og siger at det kan jeg sagtens forstå og at jeg er ked af at han ikke er det lige nu, men som sagt at vi lige kommet fra bilen af og jeg sagde så også at han ikke gør ham noget og at han plejer at være i snor. Han bliver så ved med at være aggrasiv og siger om jeg kan forstå det og at jeg ikke en skid kunne styre min hund, hunden har lagt sig i græsset tæt ved mig (Han er 4½ måned).

Du har helt ret – det er også en større udfordring når der er flere hunde. Det handler om de ikke må være der sammen uden opsyn – netop fordi de trækker hinanden med. Det bedste man kan gøre er, at finde ud af hvilken hund der oftest starter med sin gøen, ofte er der én i flokken som er mere vagtsom og “fremme i poten” end andre. Så starter man arbejdet med den hund først, og dernæst de andre – dvs. én ad gangen i haven, med fokus på succes ved ikke at gø – som beskrevet tidligere. Når alle hunde mestrer det, kan de igen være ude sammen. Ja – en langsommelig og tålmodighedskrævende proces – men der er desværre ingen smutvej når man har mange hunde som alle gør… Nogen gange er det nok at have fokus på den hund som starter det – når det er trænet væk der, så kan det være “nemmere” at få de andre stille – men ellers er det den lange enkeltvise vej frem.

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!

63 stod der et Farek (fadrække), der var fuldt af gamle Tellere (Tallerkener) og fade, som for det meste ikke blev brugt, men sad der te Staat ( til Stads), og ved Siden af stod en Brødskære og en Messing Møse (Morter), og der hang fremdeles en Skummeske af Messing paa e Tellerek (d. s. s. farek). fra Køkkenet gik en Dør ud ad e Tuekamme (Vaskerummet), hvor der var tre Hylder til at lægge de En Dønsk III (Skovby). rene Tellere og andet, der var afvasket.

Alt for mange hunde må hvert år betale prisen for menneskets impulshandlinger og dårlige beslutninger. De heldige hunde bliver omplaceret eller havner på internater. De uheldige forbliver ulykkelige i hjemmet eller må lade livet hos dyrlægen. Spørg derfor altid dig selv, om du kan give en hund et godt liv, og om det at have hund er noget for dig? Hvis svaret er JA, så skal du bl.a. også gøre dig overvejelser om størrelse, køn og race. Vi vil gerne hjælpe dig til at træffe det rette valg. Overvejer du at købe hund – eller kender du nogen der gør – så læs disse gode råd om køb af hund, Før du køber hund!

Hylen: Du må forstå, at hvis du trøster hvalpen, når den hyler, bliver problemet kun værre. Den vil tro, at den får belønning for at hyle og gøre det til en vane. Du kan faktisk hjælpe den med at lære at holde op ved ikke at gå hen til hvalpen, når den hyler. Ved at ignorere hvalpen og kun give den opmærksomhed og ros, når den holder op med at hyle, lærer den, at det ikke hjælper noget at hyle.

All training collars, including bark collars, are designed not to hurt or punish your pet. The correction stimulation is comparable to the static generated from walking through carpet. We recommend the PetSafe Deluxe Collars as they have a patented technology that detects vibration and sound to ensure precise activation. Safely control your littlest dog’s big barks with the PetSafe Deluxe Little Dog Bark Control Collar.

Hvis du ikke bor i egen bolig, skal du sikre dig, at det er tilladt at holde hund i ejendommen. I almennyttigt boligbyggeri vil det normalt være boligselskabet eller afdelingsbestyrelsen, der bestemmer reglerne for hold af husdyr. I andels- og ejerboliger vil det være beboerforeningen, der bestemmer reglerne.

92 Til Søndags havde de Hovedklæde, udsyet i Tyl, og en fin lf øl derunder med en stor Sløjfe under Hagen og i Nakken; det var et temmelig kostbar Sæt af blommere (blomstret) Silketøj. Hven de skulde true (sørge, bære Sørgetøi), havde de en sort /føl og sort Sløjfe og tæt Hovedklæde. At sy Hovedklæde gjorde Kvinderne gerne selv. Ved hver Side af det Tyl sad et lille linnen (Lærreds) Baand, og hven det var strøgen og stivet, blev det krust med en Kniv. Men naar de skulde ud, maatte de have en stor, stiv Kap (Hovedbeklædning) over Hovedklæde og Hø!; ellers faldt de sammen om Hovedet, hven det var Regn eller Tykning (Taage). De ældre Koner i Nørreherred brugte ikke det samme lf ovedsæt, som brugtes i Sønderherred. Nørreherredskonerne havde en Knippel (Kniplings) Strimmel, som blev bundet neden under Huen. De yngre havde ligesom Konerne i Sønderherred e lf oiklæ (Hovedklædet) bundet uden om Huen; i Huen var der bagpaa en stor Søife ( e Dusk eller e Fusk) af Silkebaand, og under Hagen blev der ogsaa baaret en saadan Sløjfe. Til Dagligdags bar baade Koner og Piger Huer af Sirts; men der var stor forskel paa Mønsteret, saa de, der var rigtig kendt paa Egnen kunde sige, fra hvilken By, eller i det mindste, fra hvilket Sogn Huen var. I Aarene efter Treaarskrigen undergik Klædedragten en stor forandring. Konerne aflagde deres kønne Hoved sæt og tog Kapper, som mangen Gang var yderst uklædelige. Pigerne aflagde ogsaa Hovedtøjet og gik med aaben lf oved (barhovedet) med en meget enkel flaarsætning, som for Resten klædte dem meget godt.

Bark Control

“dog will not stop barking how to make a neighbor’s dog stop barking”

Reward the absence of barking: (helpful for all barkers) when your dog opts not to bark in a typically triggering situation, make a big deal of it. Most of us are used to tuning into our dogs only when we want to correct the bad behavior and we forget to acknowledge the good. If your dog sees someone out the window and looks to you instead of barking, give him a treat. If he dashes around the yard with his best dog pal without offering commentary, praise him. If his ball rolls under the couch and he chooses to sit and wait for you to get it instead of demanding immediate help, give him a pat and fetch that ball! Even though barking is a deeply rewarding behavior for dogs, it’s possible to get a handle on it with time and patience.

Leash pulling is often successful for the dog because the person inadvertently reinforces the pulling by allowing their dog to get to where wants to go when he pulls. But you can change this picture by changing the consequence for your dog.

If you listen closely, you will eventually learn the sounds of your dog’s different barks. You may then be able to figure out what each bark means. Understanding the reason why your dog barks is the first step towards controlling the behavior.

Curb barks with scent. Researchers at Cornell University in New York found citronella collars to be much more effective in bark training. Citronella collars give a warning tone first; additional barking prompts a squirt of scent that stops the barking. Some of these collars have remote control activators.

Try ignoring the barking and waiting till your dog stops. If simply waiting silently doesn’t work, calmly ask them to “sit” or “lie down”. Once they are calm and have stopped barking, praise them with lots of fuss or a treat.

If the dog carries on barking, then go to where it is and look to see what the problem is. Do not pay attention to your dog at this point just in case it is doing it to try to get your attention on its terms (Simon Says is a game that dogs are VERY good at). Instead, show your dog that you are investigating the problem. Whether anything is there or not is not important. The main thing is that your dog sees you assessing the situation as the responsible one in the family. Give another “Thank you” and either take the dog away or just leave. Your dog sees that you have had a look and you do not think it is a problem. If your dog still continues after that, then quietly put your dog somewhere on its own until it is quiet. Your attitude is one of “Calm down”. Once you get silence, you can let your dog out again. If it goes back, repeat the process. If this happens three times then leave the dog in Time Out to show it that it really needs to chill out. This helps your pulse rate to stay low which will always have a good effect on your dog. The best leaders remain calm in a crisis.

If the “Quiet” procedure is ineffective after 10 to 20 attempts, then allow your dog to bark 3 to 4 times, calmly say “Quiet,” and then immediately make a startling noise by shaking a set of keys or an empty soda can filled with pennies. If your dog is effectively startled by the sound, he’ll stop barking. The instant he does, call him away from the door or window, ask him to sit, and give him a treat. If he stays beside you and remains quiet, continue to give him frequent treats for the next few minutes until whatever triggered his barking is gone. If he resumes barking right away, repeat the sequence. If this procedure doesn’t work after 10 to 20 attempts, please see our article, Finding Professional Behavior Help, for information about finding a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (CAAB or ACAAB), a board-certified veterinary behaviorist (Dip ACVB) or a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT) for guidance.

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!

Your dog will bark when he wants something, be it food, water, or your attention. When learning how to get a dog to stop barking, it’s important to ensure that you’ve met all of his needs before moving forward with treatment.

But first the good news. If your dog continues to keep you up at night, even after you have tried every humane method to calm it down, you’re far from alone. As the owner of two Chihuahuas, the notoriously “yappy” dogs, I have been woken up many a night from a deep and restful sleep for no good reason at all. In fact, Chihuahuas were named by the Houston Chronicle as one of the loudest dog breeds — along with breeds like beagles, huskies, dachshunds, terriers and basset hounds.

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.

Whines and whimpers are usually related to stress and/or excitment. Some breeds of dogs seem to whine more than others – German Shepherds, for example, seem especially prone to whining. Often this behavior persists because it’s reinforced by the natural human tendency to comfort a whining puppy. Like demand barking, it’s best to ignore whining and reinforce quiet. However, because it’s often stress-induced, if your dog’s a whiner, you might want to evaluate his environment to see if you can reduce the stressors in his world.

You don’t want to discourage your dog from playing, but play barking can get annoying at times. If you have more than one dog and they bark when playing together, build a set routine of times and places where it is okay. When you are playing with your dog, encourage the use of toy-based games to decrease the amount of barking.

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.

Dogs can bark excessively in response to people, dogs or other animals within or approaching their territories. Your dog’s territory includes the area surrounding his home and, eventually, anywhere he has explored or associates strongly with you: your car, the route you take during walks and other places where he spends a lot of time. How to stop a dog from barking

“dog barking ruff how to deal with a neighbor’s barking dog”

On walks, teach your dog that he can walk calmly past people and dogs without meeting them. To do this, distract your dog 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.

Talk to your neighbors and explain to them about your condition and see if they can come up with a solution first. If this doesn’t help, you may have to call law enforcement. If it is affecting your quality of life, this should be taken seriously.

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.

This behavior is more likely to annoy you than your neighbors, but it’s annoying nonetheless. A demand barker has learned that he can get what he wants – usually attention or treats – by telling you. It often starts as a gentle, adorable little grumble, and can quickly turn into insistent, loud barks – your dog’s way of saying, “I want it, NOW!”

It’s always important to consider the alternatives to no-bark collars, such as traditional disciplinary measures, or other means which avoid inflicting physical or emotional pain or stress on the dog. If it’s possible, it’s best to discipline dogs in this way, as we’re sure you’ve seen on various episodes of the Dog Whisperer, rather than to cause any unnecessary suffering by using a no-bark dog collar.

Dogs kept outside commonly bark from boredom; this is especially true for energetic breeds like German Shepherds, terriers (including Pit Bulls), and guard dogs like Dobermans and Rottweilers. Suggest that the dog needs more exercise.[2]

Most people try this but they make a crucial mistake. They yell at the dog or simply use a tone of voice that is really bad. The main thing to remember here is that you want to show the dog that what he is doing is wrong. You do not do this by shouting. In fact, when the dog hears you shout, he might become even more impatient and may end up barking even louder.

Identify a place in your home where you’d like your dog to go when people come to the door. If possible, choose a place that’s at least eight feet away from the front door but still within sight. It might be a spot at the top of a set of stairs, inside the doorway of an adjacent room, your dog’s crate, or a rug positioned at the far corner of an entryway or foyer.

A chest-led harness is a perfect training aid, as it takes pressure off a dog’s sensitive neck by distributing the pressure more evenly around the body. When the leash is attached to a ring located on the chest strap and your dog pulls, the harness will turn his body around rather than allowing him to go forward. I recommend this kind of harness for anyone who needs extra help, as safety has to come first.

Gradually get your dog accustomed to whatever is causing him to bark. Start with the stimulus (the thing that makes him bark) at a distance. It must be far enough away that he doesn’t bark when he sees it. Feed him lots of good treats. Move the stimulus a little closer (perhaps as little as a few inches or a few feet to start) and feed treats. If the stimulus moves out of sight, stop giving your dog treats. You want your dog to learn that the appearance of the stimulus leads to good things (treats!).

Block your dog’s view: (helpful for alarm barkers and territorial barkers) a quick way to get a handle on alarm and territorial barking is cutting off your dog’s visual access to whatever is inciting him outside. You can simply close your blinds or install a temporary privacy window film that obscures the view. Place the window film a few inches above your dog’s line of sight, then gradually lower it down inch by inch over the course of several weeks once your dog seems less interested in staring out the window.

Give her more exercise. Exercise is a great way to curb problem behavior, including excessive barking. Whether your dog is anxious, territorial, or simply bored, getting a good workout will probably help reduce the frequency and intensity of her problem barking.[71]

Just like any human left alone for too long, your dog gets bored, too. And as Heidi Ganahl, founder and CEO of Camp Bow Wow, explains, “If a dog is bored, they are likely to vocalize more often. If dogs are left alone for long periods of time, they can become very bored, especially if there is nothing for them to do. Dogs who are bored should be provided interactive toys such as a KONG or any of PetSafe’s Busy Buddy toys to keep your dog occupied until you get home.”

Basenjis are a primitive breed of dog from Africa. They are advertised as “barkless,” but what many people don’t know is that while they don’t bark, they do scream a blood curdling sound that evokes images of a woman being murdered. Except for this unusual breed, most dogs are in extreme stress when they scream. lnvestigate — and rescue.

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.

I mentioned the importance of your relationship and confidence not only in your own ability to handle situations but also your dog’s confidence in you. This comes through dog exercise, dog training, spending time together, setting limits and boundaries and showing appreciation for behaviors that are pleasing. Controlled walks, games such as retrieving, and learning to be patient by simply sitting or laying down by your side or relaxing in his crate will create a companion that sees no need to bark without a good reason. In this way you build a foundation of trust and confidence that lets your dog know when he can and should bark and also when he can be quiet.

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]

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]

Some dogs bark a lot when they want to tell you about something specific they have seen or heard, for example a visitor at the door, a car pulling onto a driveway, or the phone or doorbell ringing. This is called ‘alarm barking’.

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.

My year and a half old lab barks only when she goes out in the yard. She will sit by the door to ask to go out and a few seconds later she is barking her head off. I call her back inside so she doesn’t disturb the neighbors. I have trained her to respond to the come command and when she does I give her a little treat. I am worried that now she is barking so I will call her in and give her a treat. But that is the only way I know how to stop her from barking right now. What do you suggest I do instead of the come command with a treat?

Some people don’t recognize that petting a dog in the middle of barking, in the dog’s mind, is rewarding their behavior. You may think that you’re calming them down, but you’re really reinforcing that response. Remember, don’t reward what you don’t want repeated.

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?

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.

A variety of devices are designed to teach dogs to curtail barking. Most often, these are collars that deliver an unpleasant stimulus when your dog barks. The stimulus might be a loud noise, an ultrasonic noise, a spray of citronella mist or a brief electric shock. The collars that deliver noise are ineffective with most dogs. One study found that the citronella collar was at least as effective for eliminating barking as the electronic collar and was viewed more positively by owners. Virtually all dogs become “collar-wise,” meaning that they learn not to bark while wearing their anti-bark collars but revert to barking when they’re not wearing them. Collars that work on a microphone system to pick up the sound of a dog’s bark should not be used in a multidog home because any dog’s bark can activate the collar.

You can manage alarm barking by reducing the dog’s exposure to the inciting stimuli. Perhaps you can baby gate him out of the front room, move the sofa away from the windows so he can’t jump up and see out, or close the drapes.

Be consistent so you don’t confuse your dog. Everyone in your family must apply the training methods every time your dog barks inappropriately. You can’t let your dog get away with inappropriate barking some times and not others.

*Debarking is very controversial and is considered inhumane by many. It does not address the underlying cause of the barking. It is a surgical procedure in which the folds of tissue on either side of a dog’s larynx, or voice box, are removed, leaving dogs with a raspy bark instead of a full bark. Complications are common and can be life threatening, including breathing difficulties, higher incidents of choking, and ongoing pain. Dogs also have been known to regain their voices after the surgery. The procedure does not stop the barking, it only makes it sound different.

Dogs make wonderful companions and ideal pets, but sometimes even a good dog can become an incessant barker. There are numerous reasons why dogs bark, and that problematic behaviour is both annoying and, in many places, illegal. The first step to quieting your dog’s barking is to find out why he/she is making so much noise. Once you’ve determined why he/she’s barking, you’ll know what actions to take to get him/her to stop. Learning how to silence your barking dog can help ensure a quiet community and keep you out of trouble with the law.

Call the relevant authority to report a noise complaint. Find out what town hall/council/municipal office or other relevant authority to call so you can file a report on your neighbors for a noise complaint.The authorities will talk to the dog owner and assess the situation. They will usually inform you of the outcome. If nothing changes, call again a few days later.[5]

Talk to your neighbor. Many people jump straight to drastic measures instead of simply talking to the neighbor about their concerns. Unless you’re on bad terms with your neighbor, the best way to solve this problem is usually to just talk to him or her about it. You could casually approach your neighbor next time you see him or her outside, or write a note asking to set up a time to talk.[1] How to stop a dog from barking

Blandt hunde der har et adfærdsproblem, er der en del tilfælde hvor hunden ikke er syg. Her er den adfærd som hundeejere opfatter som en problemadfærd i virkeligheden et karakteristisk træk for netop den race de har valgt. Hunden er altså ikke syg men opfører sig helt normalt. Dette er uheldigt, hvis denne adfærd er uønsket og skaber problemer i dagligdagen. Ved at vælge den rigtige hunderace kan du sikre dig at du som ejer opfylder alle hundens behov, ligesom hunden opfylder de krav og ønsker du måtte have til din nye hund.

Prøver eller test er ok for skole elever. Ikke for hunde. Uanset hvornår du er sammen med din hund, hav i baghovedet, at du ikke vil teste, om de vil gøre det rigtige eller det forkerte. Du skal i stedet for råde og lede din hund, så meget det er nødvendigt … Altid. Det er enormt vigtigt at huske.

»Det er racer, der fra naturens hånd er udviklet til at gø meget. En dansk-svensk gårdhund er avlet til at løbe rundt på gården og gø, hvis der kommer nogen, så landmanden kan høre det,« fortæller dyrlæge Paulette Vivian Topsøe-Jensen, der har speciale i familiedyr. anbefaler at tage den dimension med i sine overvejelser, når man vælger hund og ikke kun vælger hund ud fra, hvor nuttet den ser ud.

You can adjust the sensitivity of the sensor from Low to Medium to High, and this usually comes with trial and error. If the device is going off too often, or at sounds that aren’t the target dog’s bark, its a sign to reduce the sensitivity level.

Nu er jeg vegetar – og det er jeg ret glad for lige nu hvor der er så meget bøvl med salmonella, kogalskab og andet skummelt – så jeg føler mig på den sikre side. helt 100% sikker kan man jo aldrig være med mindre man helt lader være med at indtage oksekød overhovedet, men man kan jo sige at så længe der ikke er påvist et eneste tilfælde af mennesker med Kreuzfeldt-Jacob og der er fundet to køer i dansk historie, så virker faren jo ikke ligefrem overhængende.

Vælger man en af selskabshundene som familiehund, bør man – som navnet antyder – prioritere selskab højt. De vil gerne deltage i familiens aktiviteter, og er grundet størrelsen nemme at have med. Hundene er som oftest meget samarbejdsvillige og nemme at træne. De skal have tryghed og få tillid gennem mange gode oplevelser – også med fremmede hunde i forskellige størrelser, og de skal ikke overbeskyttes! Hunden behøver ikke at sidde på armen af os. Selv de mindste hunde har fire ben, og bruger dem gerne!

Ved at kende til de mest almindelige faktorer, der udløser hundebid, kan biddene nemmere undgås. Hunde udviser nemlig altid et eller flere advarende adfærdstræk, inden de bider. Mulige advarselstegn på et bid kan være:

Herefter kan du gå over til at lære hunden “stille”-kommandoen. Find nogle rolige omgivelse uden distraktioner. Giv kommandoen “tal”. Når hunden begynder at gø, skal du sige “stille” og og placere en godbid foran hundens næse. Ros hunden, når den bliver stille og giv den godbiden. 

At smaske eller slikke sig om munden betyder for hunden venlighed, og har en særdeles tydelig effekt på samtlige hunde. Gaben kan ligeledes være tegn på venlighed. Den kan dog også være udtryk for usikkerhed.

Bark Control

“barking dog phantogram dog barking at men”

“Often, a dog’s bark means he’s bored or frustrated, and he wants us to fix it,” she says. “In situations where you’re not sure what the cause of the barking is, it’s fair to assume your dog would like to interact with you.”

As already mentioned, dogs are easily distracted. It is normal for them to hear sounds outside and start barking. What is interesting and is rarely understood is that the dog can hear sounds that you do not because of how well the sense is developed in these animals. In the event that you live in a small apartment, the dog hearing something outside is something that is quite common. Combine this with the fact that he might not have enough space to play and it is a certainty that he will start barking.

Literally THOUSANDS of you have requested this video! Unwanted barking is the reason so many people give up on a dog. Share this video so that more people know how to handle this easy to correct issue.

Of course with all dog training the more your dog takes notice of YOU the better! (Something I’ll explain a bit more later on…) So if your dog is not taking a blind bit of notice then we need to go back a couple of steps and get their focus and attention first!

Now add stay into your exercise. Stand next to your dog’s spot. Ask him to sit or lie down, say “Stay” and wait one second. Then say “Yes!” or “Good!” and give him a treat. After you deliver the treat, say “Okay” to release your dog from the stay and encourage him to get off the spot. Repeat this sequence at least 10 times per training session. Progressively increase from one second to several seconds, but vary the time so that sometimes you make the exercise easy (a shorter stay) and sometimes you make it hard (a longer stay). If your dog starts to get up before you say “Okay,” say “Uh-uh!” or “Oops!” and immediately ask him to sit or lie down on his spot again. Then make the exercise a little easier the next few times by asking your dog to hold the stay for a shorter time. Avoid pushing your dog to progress too fast or testing him to see how long he can hold the stay before getting up. This sets your dog up to fail. You want him to be successful at least 8 out of 10 times in a row.

I sorta feel like I caused this because when I was getting them used to the lead when they were puppies I always gave them lots of praises and made the experience seem like loads of fun. If I take one away to work with him alone the other kicks off with a mix of howling/barking which I believe is separation anxiety.

Some dogs bark excessively in a repetitive way, like a broken record. These dogs often move repetitively as well. For example, a dog who’s compulsively barking might run back and forth along the fence in his yard or pace in his home.

Dogs bark because they are dogs, they bark to alert to danger or for attention. Many bark for food. They bark because they are  happy, fearful, sad, anxious, frustrated, going deaf, scared or hurt. They howl at the sirens. Some howl at the moon. Some dogs bark to hear themselves bark and many bark because they are under stimulated and bored. There are so many reasons a dog could be barking. There are even dogs who bark because the sky is blue.  Some dogs bark more than others. I am sure by now you get the idea. Dogs bark for lots of reasons. To help your dog, it really helps to get to the root of why your dog is barking and what they are barking it, and most importantly, what you may be doing to contribute. 

Does your dog bark for attention? Don’t give him any! None at all – even stern reprimands count as attention. He has no idea what “quiet” means; yelling “quiet!” will only make it worse. He’ll think you’re joining in the barking game. Reward him with your attention when he’s calm and not barking. Teach a cue for being quiet. It’s a good trick to have in your dog’s bag for when he’s out with you and barking isn’t welcome.

Your pup’s constant barking may just be an annoyance to you; but if it starts to encroach on other people’s sanity, you may have some fines to pay for your dog’s gift of gab. This is why it’s critical for both pup and pocketbook that you learn how to find your dog’s vocal off switch. 

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.

Can someone please do an article on the OPPOSITE? Dogs that refuse to walk? I a very subborn mini bull terrier who puts the brakes on and will let me drag him rather than walk. After about 10 minutes of fighting he is fine for most of the walk and seems to like it but if he isn’t feeling it, he makes it known, which is EVERY single morning.

Dogs bark for various reasons. If you want to modify your dog’s barking behavior (either decrease it or increase it) it’s helpful to know what kind of barking your dog is doing, how the behavior is being reinforced, and what to do about it.

If your dog barks at people coming to the door, at people or dogs walking by your property, at people or dogs he sees on walks, and at people or dogs he sees through the fence, and his barking is accompanied by whining, tail wagging and other signs of friendliness, your dog is probably barking to say hello. He most likely barks the same way when family members come home.

Remember, most people actually do want their dog to alert them that something is going on outside. It’s like the doorbell. You want to be able to hear it and know something is there, but you only want it to ring once.

Sue the dog owner in small claims court. Even after getting the authorities involved, some stubborn dog owners won’t comply with requests to quiet the dog. If nothing else works, you can sue for nuisance in small claims court. The goal will be to make a case that the dog’s barking is preventing you from enjoying your own home.[7] If you win, the dog owner will have to pay a small sum of money. Prepare to sue by doing the following:

I would NOT use one. We had a sport dog no bark collar and we recently found two large holes and missing hair on our dogs neck. She just had surgery and came out with five stitches and on a bunch of medications.

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]

“control dog barking dog barking while sleeping”

Our senior Danish Dog Listener lives in Copenhagen. Down her street, every single house has been burgled, with one exception. That house is the one with Karina’s four Doberman living there. Now, I don’t know any burglars (I am not a ne’er-do-well) but I imagine that there are very, very few burglars who, upon seeing four Doberman running out into the garden and barking, will think to themselves, “I like a challenge!”

Don’t encourage your dog to bark at strangers or people walking by the door. Asking your dog “who’s that?” in a querying tone will excite their curiosity. Looking out the window or door will encourage him to do the same, and once there, he will bark.

Greeting/Play: To stop a dog from going into a barking frenzy every time you come home or the doorbell rings, you’ll need to teach him other behaviors. One way is to train your dog to go to a spot and stay there when the door opens. It’s best if they can see the door, but not be too close to it. Pick a spot and practice getting your dog to go there and stay, but don’t touch the door yet. Use lots of treats and praise, making it a game.

If you listen closely, you will eventually learn the sounds of your dog’s different barks. You may then be able to figure out what each bark means. Understanding the reason why your dog barks is the first step towards controlling the behavior.

What is interesting with the dog care or daycare centres is that they are really beneficial for the dog in many more ways than you may think. The dog will increase his agility, will become more obedient and will be able to get rid of that high amount of energy that he has.

If she seems receptive, show her this article to give her some ideas about how to modify her dog’s barking behavior. If you’re feeling generous, give her a copy of Terry Ryan’s book, The Bark Stops Here, for more in-depth information on barking.

While some of them might actually work in the immediate-term (by stopping the dog from barking while the device is being used) sadly they do little to address the motivation behind the barking, and so only act to suppress the behaviour without actually solving the real issue. 

Alarm barking does not always require a visual confirmation of the perceived intruder. Some dogs may engage in alarm barking simply from hearing a car door outside or hearing voices on the sidewalk.[45]

“Yay, Mom’s home! Mom’s home! Mom’s home!” If your dog hails you with hellos when you return after an absence, it’s time to shift into ignore mode. Stand outside your door and wait for the cacophony to subside, then enter calmly; no rousing hug-fests or “I love you! I missed you!” sessions. When your dog is quiet, then calmly greet him. If he starts to bark again, mark the barking with an “Oops!” and ignore him again.

Dogs that are not bored will rarely bark without a serious reason. The next time you see the dog barking in the living room and running around agitated, it may be because he is really bored. Take him out for a walk. Then, try to find more entertainment options for him for other days so that the situation does not repeat itself.

Why do dogs bark? Unfortunately, there is no single reason that dogs vocalize, which means that there’s no across-the-board quick fix to stop your dog from barking. It can be frustrating to live in a home with (or next door to!) a dog that barks because it’s tough to prevent barking, and even tougher to stop it once the barking is underway. The first step to curbing a dedicated barker is discovering the motivation behind the behavior then addressing the problem with a customized training solution.

If barking is a problem on your walks, using some of the same methods utilized in loose leash training may help. Hold treats in your hand, giving some out as you walk along. The idea is to encourage your dog to focus on you and not any distractions. Let him sniff and see the palmed treats from time to time so he knows what you have. Use a special treat that your dog doesn’t normally get and keep the pieces small so your dog can chew and swallow them easily while walking. Train your dog to “sit/stay” while people pass, allowing him to say hello only if the other person wants to. Praise, reward, and consistency are very important to make this work, but after a few days or a week, you should see a marked difference and can start spacing the use of treats farther apart.

So you have a dog barking problem – What solutions are out there? Trying to stop your dog barking should start with finding out why it is barking in the first pace. This article looks at some motivations for dog barking, what works and what doesn’t!

My min Schnauzer starts barking,yowling and squeaking the moment you bring the lead in to the room. she doesn’t stop for almost the entire walk. She can bark for up to an hour on a walk with no dogs in sight.

On walks, teach your dog that he can walk calmly past people and dogs without meeting them. To do this, distract your dog 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.

One of the main benefits of the human-canine partnership is a dog’s natural ability to alert. You could say the talent for barking and guarding earned that first furry friend a place by the fire with our ancestors.

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.

Try a new tone. Tone collars emit a loud, short tone at the first “woof.” That’s often enough to make Fluffy stop and search for what caused the tone — it boredom and the barking, often within minutes. However, the collar must be adjusted properly or can “punish” the wrong dog if a canine friend is barking nearby.

At DoodyCalls, we spend a lot of time with our dogs. In fact, our dog Rusty—who looks a whole lot like our mascot Doodle—sleeps right next to me at night. Although hard to wake up in the morning, once he’s up he says hello with a good morning kiss and quickly gets ready to go to work.

Most dogs out there cannot simply stay and do nothing. They need to solve puzzles, learn new things and have their minds challenged. So many games exist for this and you can find them with a simple Google Search. You want to be sure that the dog gets the attention he needs. If you cannot offer that attention, you want to arrange someone stepping in so that the dog receives the attention. You can even hire a dog sitter if this is something that will keep the mind of the dog active.

You surely know what your dog loves to do and what makes him tired. Make sure that you offer more of that. In many cases the problem is that the dog has too much energy so the solution to stop him from barking can be as simple as taking him for walks more often than you do right now. See if this helps. If not, it might be because he is bored at home. Buy more toys and make sure that he has a space where he can play. Eventually, you will see him tired and going to sleep. As the dog is busy, he will stop barking.

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]

You can use the positive interrupt to redirect a frenzy of frustration barking. If you consistently offer high value treats in the presence of frustration-causing stimuli, you can counter-condition your dog to look to you for treats when the cat strolls by (cat = yummy treats) rather than erupt into a barking fit.

Dogs bark for various reasons. If you want to modify your dog’s barking behavior (either decrease it or increase it) it’s helpful to know what kind of barking your dog is doing, how the behavior is being reinforced, and what to do about it.

Boredom: Do you ever sing or talk to yourself when you’re bored? Your dog may do the same thing. The reason we often see the boredom bark is when dogs are left outside for long periods of time. We all know that dogs are pack animals and want to be near you. When they are left alone, they often occupy their time by barking.

Give your puppy a “bark limit.” Maybe he’s allowed to bark three times or five times — until you acknowledge his warning so he knows you can take over for him. After the designated number of barks, praise your puppy — “GOOD bark, GOOD dog, now HUSH,” and give him a treat as you praise. It’s hard for dogs to bark while chewing so this actually serves a dual purpose.

Block your dog’s view: (helpful for alarm barkers and territorial barkers) a quick way to get a handle on alarm and territorial barking is cutting off your dog’s visual access to whatever is inciting him outside. You can simply close your blinds or install a temporary privacy window film that obscures the view. Place the window film a few inches above your dog’s line of sight, then gradually lower it down inch by inch over the course of several weeks once your dog seems less interested in staring out the window.

A chest-led harness is a perfect training aid, as it takes pressure off a dog’s sensitive neck by distributing the pressure more evenly around the body. When the leash is attached to a ring located on the chest strap and your dog pulls, the harness will turn his body around rather than allowing him to go forward. I recommend this kind of harness for anyone who needs extra help, as safety has to come first.

When we adopted Rusty, he had a terrible case of intestinal worms and joining a new family must have been pretty stressful for him. It took some time, but he recovered from the worms and after he grew used to his new home, he stopped his poop eating escapades.

At the “more” end of the continuum, the scent hounds are programmed to give voice to announce the presence of their quarry. Thus Beagles, Coonhounds, Foxhounds, and others in this group are quite vocal – although they do tend to bay rather than yap. Most of the herding breeds are easily incited to bark. Skilled at telling a recalcitrant sheep or cow to back off, these Type-A workaholic dogs also delight in playing the role of noisy fun police. Many of the toy breeds also have a well-deserved reputation for barkiness as do the terriers.

Some dogs bark excessively in a repetitive way, like a broken record. These dogs often move repetitively as well. For example, a dog who’s compulsively barking might run back and forth along the fence in his yard or pace in his home.

Each type of barking serves a distinct function for a dog, and if he’s repeatedly rewarded for his barking—in other words, if it gets him what he wants—he can learn to use barking to his benefit. For example, dogs who successfully bark for attention often go on to bark for other things, like food, play and walks. For this reason, it’s important to train your dog to be quiet on cue so that you can stop his attention-related barking and teach him to do another behavior instead—like sit or down—to get what he wants.

For immediate help, I recommend that you visit our website and plug in your zip code or city to see if there is a VSPDT local to you. If there isn’t, there is always the option of doing a phone consultation with one of them.

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.

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.)

Other medical problems can also cause excessive barking. For example, a brain disease or a dog who is in chronic pain. Older pets may also develop a form of canine senility that could cause uncontrollable barking. Have your pet checked by a veterinarian to rule out any medical conditions as reasons for excessive vocalizations.

If you’re in a location where neighbors won’t complain and the other dogs tolerate the behavior, you might just leave this one alone. With children, however, barking behavior is not appropriate, and the dog should be managed by removing him from the play area, rather than risk bites to children.

Very often we push things too fast and do not realise that our dogs are struggling with the speed that we are progressing. Then things fall apart and we all get stressed. By slowing the training down, dogs relax more and start to succeed!

When your dog automatically turns his attention to you in response to your cue when confronted with major real-life distractions, you have a valuable tool for interrupting his barking. Be sure you practice occasionally with mild distractions to keep the cue “tuned up”, and remember to thank him and tell him what a wonderful dog he is when he stops barking on your request.

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.

It’s really normal for dogs to bark. They bark to warn another dog to stay out of their territory, they bark when happy or at play, thy bark when danger seems near, and they bark when they are about to attack or are afraid. Admittedly, too much barking can be annoying, which is why dog owners really have to take a healthy and practical approach when learning how to stop a dog from barking. Waysandhow.

White noise machine: (helpful for alarm barkers and territorial barkers) the machine’s steady unchanging sound is an easy way to cover incidental noises from outside like delivery trucks or people passing by that might trigger an alarm barker.

If you have a nervous dog, time and patience is key! The overall goal should be to get your dog comfortable around the things that is making him nervous. If you can get a nervous dog to play a game of tug-of-war around things that seem to make them nervous, then you off to a great start! But, most dogs don’t play when they’re nervous, so having high quality rewards nearby can help. This will slowly help your dog associate something great with things that used to make him uncomfortable. Over time, (sometimes a long time,) you should begin seeing improvements.

Seriously, electric shock collars may not be illegal in the United States yet, but they should be.  Electric shock, especially for a natural function such as barking, is cruel.  I am certain that using this type of device does cause dogs to experience unnecessary anxiety and stress.  In fact, people training dogs to be vicious for illegal dog fights also use electric shocks, that should tell you what a terrible idea this is.

More exercise: (helpful for all barkers) nearly every dog can benefit from more exercise, both mental and physical. A dog that has had a good workout will be less likely to be on alert for perceived interlopers or feel the need to pester you for attention. Take the time to wear your dog out every day with a rousing game of fetch or tug and get his brain activated by introducing mind-teasers like “find the toy” and hide-and-seek. Remember, a tired dog is a good dog!

I notice that the halti or other head collars were not mentioned. I have a breed that is just made to pull and I have finally found a head collar that works for us although I would love to modify the part that goes over the nose. (I actually have purchased two of similar design and a mix of the two would be ideal) The person who makes the one I am using is a bit of an um, interesting character on the fb page and on the web but thus far the apparatus works really well for control. I really don’t want my dog at heel for the whole walk, but as the article says, the dog’s idea of walking right along and mine are pretty different, particularly as I am now more disabled and use a cane. We used to walk one to two miles a day, but that has become impossible so we are mixing a play date with a friend and shorter walks a couple of times a week. What the walk has always been for us is a time to practice those things his fluffy brain would like to forget!!

You may have heard the suggestion that if you put a behavior such as barking on cue and have it under good stimulus control, the dog then won’t bark unless you give him the cue to speak. Here are the four rules of stimulus control:

When training your dog to stop barking, you should set up training exercises rather than waiting for the mailman to ring the doorbell. Begin training by doing the basics like come and stay (check out my other blog posts in the links). Be sure to reward your dog generously so that he knows to pay attention to you. Have a friend or family member do something that would typically trigger dog barking – like knock on the door. See if you can get your dog’s attention. The second he looks or even glances at you, reward him. If you get your dog to stop barking after the trigger, take some steps backward. Wait until you can get your dog to do the simple tasks, like come and stay. Then, have your training partner lightly knock on the door or even tap the door with a finger. If you can get your dog’s attention, reward liberally! This may take several training session, so stick with it! Within a few weeks, you should be able to stop your dog barking!

Why do dogs bark? Unfortunately, there is no single reason that dogs vocalize, which means that there’s no across-the-board quick fix to stop your dog from barking. It can be frustrating to live in a home with (or next door to!) a dog that barks because it’s tough to prevent barking, and even tougher to stop it once the barking is underway. The first step to curbing a dedicated barker is discovering the motivation behind the behavior then addressing the problem with a customized training solution.

Territorial/Protective/Alarm/Fear: Because this type of barking is often motivated by fear or a perceived threat to their territory or people, it can be lessened by limiting what your dog sees. If he’s in a fenced yard, use solid wood instead of chain fencing. Indoors, limit access to windows and doors or cover them with an opaque film.

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.

You want some control over your dog’s voice, but don’t lose sight of the value of his vocal communications; he may be trying to tell you something important. If you ignore him you might find your horses on the highway, the house burned to the ground, or Timmy in the well.

I know this isn’t exactly on topic tonight, but I have been having issues with my young male rottweiler following my commands to go to bed at night. He is normally so well behaved and a great listener. I don’t know if it is because Ares is getting to the age where his hormones or kicking in and he doesn’t want to listen, or what. I understand that sometimes he gets bored in his crate when I have been at work, and I have let him take his favorite toy to bed with him, but tonight was a struggle to get him to bed. I was actually home all day today with him, and we had fun playing out doors and relaxing inside, but for some reason, he absolutely would not go up the stairs tonight. I had to carry him up the stairs, and mind you he is a 50-60 pound pup who is 5 months, but to do that seemed a bit extreme. Am I not being firm enough? I just don’t understand. I could have him outside going potty and he gets a whiff of something, and all I have to do is call him and he comes running. What could be so different about tonight?
