You could try using a no bark collar, sold in pet stores and sends a small shock to the dog when it barks.


Answer by  Lottadogs (1258)

The best way to stop barking is to start by figuring out why the dog is barking. Bored barking may be resolve with mental and physical stimulation of training and exercise. Territorial barking may be changed by limiting the dog's view of the world and leash walking. Lonesome barking can be stopped by providing companionship and exercise.

There are many collars on the market to help with an exuberant barker, such as a shock collar (completely harmless), or the spray collars work great.

Depending on your dog's temperament, barking can be a means of gaining attention, or as a way of alerting the "pack" to the presence of intruders or danger. Clicker training will foster a desire for your dog to obey your commands, then you can stop the barking with positive reinforcement.

Never yell and scream at the dog, it gives them the attention that they are crying out for. Plus your dog will think that is joining them, adding to the excitement.
