How to stop a puppy from barking

Barking is a natural thing for your dog to do just like it's a natural thing for humans to talk. However, when it comes to excessive dog barking, while it may not be a problem for you, it can quickly become tiresome for your neighbours. This article looks at how to train a dog to stop barking.

When it comes to dogs, you can expect to hear them bark. After all, it's a normal and completely accepted part of who they are. Unfortunately, it's when our dogs continually bark that it becomes a problem for owners and for neighbours. However, just like we can't stop speaking, we can't stop a puppy from barking. Dog barking is essential when your dog is trying to warn you and the family of an impending danger. While it's natural for dogs to bark, we can control the excessive barking to an extent where everyone is happy. In order to set out a plan, you need to determine why your dog is barking. Dogs which are socially isolated or confined for long periods of time need an outlet to release the pent up energy inside them and they do this through barking. If your puppy is left unattended during the day, then they are likely to have a whining puppy as no one is around to control it. Your dog may behave like this also because you have unintentionally trained it to do so. When your dog needs to go outside, they bark, when they need to get back inside, they bark, and when they want a treat, they bark to let you know. For them, barking is a way to getting what they want and a way for you to answer to their needs.
