Things to Remember:
– Barking is a form of expression and and communication that can be self-rewarding to a dog. A dog should never be reprimanded or punished for barking as this can only lead to more serious consequences.
– Barking can be minimized to tolerable levels with proper management and training techniques. Dog owners should recognize the kind of barking that their dog is doing, whether it’s a single type of barking or a combination of different types.
– Keeping a detailed record of the dog’s barking is the first step in understanding and managing problematic barking.
– In cases of chronic stress related barking, the dog’s owner should understand the trigger so he can address it. Stress can come from the environment but it can also mean that the dog might be in pain or ill.
– Once a dog owner understands the type and reason for barking, he can prevent the dog from being in a situation that triggers him to bark.
– Using distraction and time outs can be effective strategies to address a dog’s barking, if used properly. Improper use of both can be translated by the dog as attention and can prompt him to bark more.
