How To Stop Your Puppy'S Bark From Getting Out Of Hand
Puppy bark can be an annoyance, but it can be taught to stop. Consider your dog’s bark as a doggy alarm: it serves as a warning about anything unusual, interesting, or exciting. Be sure to keep in mind that some dog's mental development is similar to a young child's. Use appropriate techniques to train your dog. Be careful to remember that your dog is just a baby. It only knows what you teach it. Avoid harsh discipline; praise and kindness and other positive reinforcement can help your dog grow up to be a well-adjusted, well- behaved dog. When speaking with your dog, the tone of voice and body language are just as important as the words you use. Chew toys that reward the dog's attention with tasty treats fill up the mouth. White noise machines can mask sounds or turn the radio to static. Not all of the techniques listed above work for every dog. Most training techniques require time and consistency. If you haven’t seen improvement in three to five days using one of the anti-bark techniques, try a different approach or consider working with a professional dog trainer. . . .
