How to Stop Dog Barking
out why dogs bark and what you can do
to put an end to this annoying behavior FAST!
The best way to stop dog barking is to first figure out the root cause of the problem. While barking is
certainly not as complex as human language, experts now believe that dogs use barking to communicate with humans
and other dogs.
A certain amount of barking is normal, but excessive barking is not. Although it is largely dependent upon the
breed, there are certain circumstances under which any dog will bark, regardless of its breed.
One of the main reasons dogs bark is to alert you to a perceived danger such as an intruder in your home or the
approach of a stranger. In order to stop unnecessary barking, it is important to first understand that not all dog
barking should be discouraged.

The first step in stopping excessive dog barking is to make it clear to your dog that you do not approve of the
behavior that he is displaying. One way to stop dog barking is to quickly say “No” and then walk away, ignoring the
dog. In order to stop inappropriate barking, it is important for bad behavior not to be rewarded. By the same
token, good behavior should be rewarded at the correct time.
Nuisance barking is the most common complaint received by animal services. It is considered a noise ordinance
and most cities enforce noise ordinances. Barking is probably the main reason for dog owners seeking dog training
advice or even joining formal dog obedience classes. A good way to prevent excessive dog barking is through proper
play and exercise.
So your first step is to determine the difference between your dog’s normal barking behavior and excessive or
inappropriate barking to get attention, at mealtimes, and barking at everything that moves.
Remember that ignoring your dog’s excessive barking is the best way to stop this annoying behavior. You should never yell to stop
your dog from barking as this will only increase your dog's anxiety and fear. He could also think you are
barking right alongside him! When using the "Quiet" command to stop your dog from barking, it is important that
you remain calm and in control, and don't shout, get excited or make a fuss.
Inappropriate barking is a behavior problem that can escalate into a major issue if not properly understood or
managed. However, you don't want to stop barking completely, as this can be an important way for your pet to alert
you to danger or discomfort. Understanding why and when your dog barks can help you to figure out how to stop your
dog from barking. Once you understand why your dog barks, this will assist you in learning how to prevent excessive
barking and help to eliminate the problem.
