What's the best way to stop your dog from barking all the time.
I have a Miniature Schnauzer who is a barker. I like it when she lets me know someone is in our yard, so I let her bark then. If she barks for no reason, I squirt her with a water bottle. She gets the message!
It depends why your dog is barking. The way to stop any behavior is to figure out why it is occurring, stop reinforcing it if possible and teach your dog what to do instead.
get a dog training whistle and use it to train the dog not to bark ... ive heard you need to have an assertive tone to get the message through.
When my dog barks, I will look to see why. I then tell him 'Enough', and tap him on the nose. You don't need to hit them, just a light tap. If they do not stop, repeat the steps. Praise them when they stop. They will get the idea and every time you say 'Enough', they will quit barking. I have always trained my dogs that way and it has even worked on yappy breeds.
Look for a reason when they bark. My mom found the dog in the kitchen barking at the refrigerator. She found out that my dad had been putting ice cubes in the dogs water dish and she wanted an ice cube in her water.
I have worked at 2 vets surgeries. We used to recommend the citronella collars. They have a canister of citrus scented fluid attached to them, and a sensor on the collar that knows when the dog growls or barks. At the point they growl or bark a light spray of citrus scented mist is fired out of the collar, which immediately distracts the dog from what it is doing. They work really well, plus your dog turns into a mobile air freshener, (at least until it stops barking).

Have you ever used a bark collar on your dog?Our dog is an extremely loud and obnoxious barker and we are surprised that we have not had complaints from the neighbors yet. Have you had any success fixing a barking problem and if so how?

How do you get a persistently barking dog to stop barking so much?He bards at everything. A leaf could blow across the driveway and he'd bark at it. When I tell him to knock it off, he stops for a minute then goes right back to it.

How do you get your dog to stop barking for no reason at all?It's not my dog but my neighbors dog that just keeps barking all night. Too sad there's no law here that owners have to keep them quiet!
