Remember to keep some tips in your mind while training your dog to stop barking: How to get my dog to stop barking

Do not yell at your dog to be quiet as it just sounds like you are barking along with him.
Keep your all of the training sessions positive and upbeat.


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

Remove the motivation

Your dog always gets some kind of reward when he barks. Otherwise, he would not do this. Figure out what he gets out of the barking and remove that. Do not give your dog the opportunity to continue that barking behavior.

Ignore the dog barking

Ignore your dog’s barking as long as it takes him to stop it. That means do not give him any attention at all while he is barking. Your attention will only reward him for being noisy. Do not talk to him, do not touch him, and do not even look at him. When he finally quiets, even to take a breath, do reward him with a treat.

Desensitize your dog to the stimulus

Gradually get your dog accustomed to whatever is causing him to bark at times. Start with the stimulus at a distance. It must be far enough away so that he does not bark when he sees that. Feed him a lot of good treats. Move the stimulus a little closer and feed treats. If that stimulus moves out of sight, then stop giving your dog treats. You must want your dog to learn that the appearance of stimulus leads to some of the good things

Ask your dog for an incompatible behavior

When your dog starts barking, ask him to do something that is incompatible with the barking. Teaching your dog to react to the barking stimuli with something that really inhibits him from barking, for example , lying down in his bed.

Keep your dog tired

Make sure your dog is getting sufficient enough physical and mental exercises every day. A tired dog is always a good dog and he is the one who is less likely to bark from boredom or due to the frustration. Depending on his breed, age, and also the health, your dog may require some several long walks as well as a good game of chasing the ball and playing with some of the interactive toys.
