Feel free to ask questions.
reduce the stress, reduce the bark.
oh, and reduce the stress, your dog lives a longer, healthier, happier life.
Consider what's making your dog yap. Does he need yard access? Is a cat taunting him through the window? Does he newly like the sound of his bark?
Check your pet's deep-seated needs: hunger, thirst or elimination. Your pup might be trying to relate you something.
Remove your dog's motivation for barking. For example, make a dog door for easy outdoor access or close the shades.
Invest within a citronella no-bark collar, which is effective and not cruel; if your dog barks, the collar sprays a small amount of citronella, which dogs dislike.
Use positive reinforcement to train your dog to yelp on command; this will help him learn how to be quieted on command as well.
Say "Good" at the exact instant your pet exhibits right behavior, followed by a reward and plenty of praise.
Consult a board-certified veterinary behaviorist or a pet behaviorist for additional suggestions if adjectives else fails.
Hope it works!
What I did to stop my dog (a beagle/aussie shepherd mix) barking was I trained her from a impressively young age not to bark. When she did bark at something, I'd pocket her by the collar and give her a stern "No." right at that moment.
Later, when she was a bit elder, she got a bark collar. This gives the dog for a moment zap of electricity when they bark a lot. Not enough to hurt, merely enough to startle them.
Try a bark collar! best way everytime unless you own the time to properly train him with out one
