How do you stop a small dog from barking?


I live with a chihuahua (not my choice), and all she ever does it bark! Her real owner, who also lives with us, refuses to do anything about it. Do you know of any ways to humanely stop a dog from barking at every little thing?

    You could always try a bark collar too, they work WONDERS!

    I used the squirt bottle method years ago before I knew about behavior change through positive reinforcement training. I would only need to say, "I'm going to get the squirt gun." It worked, but not the most effective way to change behavior.
