  • Bark,bark, bark....how do I stop it?

    25 May at 19:14 from atlas

    Dogs will be dogs, which means they sometimes bark, but you can teach your dog to control their barking so that it's not disruptive. These three tips will make your training easier and more effective. Each scenario has specific reasons why they bark.  Sometimes they are feeling abandoned or lonely.  Could be they are reacting to a neighbour's dog or a noise that they don't like, but here are a few shared tricks:

    Be Consistent: Reacting the same way each time your dog does or doesn't do what you want helps him better learn how to respond to your commands. Like always turning away and not giving attention when he barks or jumps.

    Reward Quiet: When your dog is quiet, like when he stops barking while in his kennel, reward him with praise and treats. Over time, he'll associate not barking as a positive behaviour that gets him attention and food.

    Exercise Patience: Some dogs take longer to train than others, and even quick learners are likely to take a few tries to understand what you're teaching them, so be patient. Know that the time you invest in training your dog will eventually result in the behaviour you want, even if it takes them a while to learn.
