I say this everyday but set your dog up for success. Barking is no exception!! Here are some key tips to eliminating barking.
If your dog is already crate trained that’s perfect but if not allowing your dog access to loud hallway noise, neighbors chatting and moving trucks , it’s best for them not to be waiting at the door for noises.
Leave your tv on or the radio . This works two ways. It really drowns out the noise from outside and incase your dog happens to bark or whine it drowns them out as well.
Windows can be a huge barking problem. Eliminate the temptation by putting up the curtains. Until you have a trainer come in help slowly adjusting your dog to ignoring objects outside. The windows have to covered. ( this is a whole other topic).
So important! Make the home exciting and stimulating.
Remember you can not expect results if you don’t set yourself and your dog up for success.
