Dog Barking Getting on Your Nerves?
While a barking dog can be annoying, one way to control this behaviour is with a leash and collar correction. When your dog barks during a walk, give him a correction and tell him “quiet”. As soon as he stops barking, praise him with physical and verbal praise. It is also important to keep your dog moving until you are past the distraction.
When your dog barks when you are away from home, it can be annoying to your neighbours. If he has access to a window, it is likely he will bark at something that happens outside. The easiest way to prevent this behaviour is to deny your dog access to the window but putting him in a crate or other confined area in your home.
