Three Things To Try When Your Dog Won't Stop Barking

Three Things To Try When Your Dog Won't Stop Barking
Three Things To Try When Your Dog Won't Stop Barking

It goes without saying that a dog’s bark is often an invitation to communicate. If you’ve had a canine companion for a long time, you’re likely able to discern what your dog wants when they bark. You’ll hear the joyful noise when you come from work and are asked to go for a walk, and you may sense a warning tone when your dog is around strangers and wants to protect you. What happens, though, when your dog barks for no reason at all, and/or all the time?

Dogs can be very vocal, and while it’s nice to hear the happiness in their voice it can get rather frustrating if your dog won’t stop. It can cause tension not only within your household, but with your neighbors should they complain. To maintain harmony at home, here are a few tips to consider to help reduce the barking.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Has your pet assumed the role of watchdog, checking the window for any suspicious movement? They may bark at delivery people, squirrels...anything in their line of vision. If so, try limiting their view of the outdoors while they are in the house. Keep curtains drawn and doors shut, and train your dog to not park beside a window for long periods. Lessen the exposure to this kind of stimuli and your dog may keep calm.

Have a Treat Ready

A reward system can help make a difference when it comes to controlling how often your dog barks. Associating an earned treat after silence or using a “quiet” command is one way to condition your pet and hopefully curb the undesired behavior. Know, however, it will take time and patience to accomplish.

Walk, Run, Play it Out

Your dog may bark more than is necessary because they’re anxious to exercise. Make sure your pet exercises regularly, be it in the backyard or at a favorite dog park. Sometimes a dog just needs to run off the excitement, and when it’s time for bed you may be pleasantly surprised to find your pet would rather sleep than make noise.

You can control excessive barking with time, patience, and discipline. Know what stimulates your dog’s tendency to bark, and show positive reinforcement when your pet quiets down. For treats to reward your pet, visit our online pet store for a wide selection.
