Stop a dog's excessive barking by squirting them with a water bottle when they bark, or if the dog stays outside, try an electric collar. Limit a dog's barking with the tips in this free video on dog training from a professional dog trainer.
Hi! This is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg with Miami Dog Training in Miami, Florida. In this clip, we are going to talk about how to stop your dog from excessive barking. First line of defense for me is a common water bottle, squirt gun, super soaker, anything that can shoot a nice stream of water at the dog when they start barking. If you are within reach, this is a great tool to use. You spray it right, you know, you put it on the stream not on the little spritzy thing so that you are misting them. You put it on the stream and you want to spray it right in their nose, eyes, mouth area. You know, as they are barking. That is a great deterrent for that if, you know, you are within reach. Now, another line of defense would be a e collar or a electronic bark collar. Which, you know, the newer models the more recent models, they do not affect the dog from another dog's bark. Which has been a problem in the past. So, with these newer models it only responds to the dog that is barking, not the dog next to it that is barking. So, you know, give it a try. If one does not work, you know, maybe you want to switch to another. But, start with the thing that is least to most. This is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg with Miami Dog Training.
