Step 1: Correct the dog consistently and repeatedly Correct your dog when they bark by giving them a stern look, making a loud, sharp sound, or physically touching your dog to distract them. Keep correcting if the dog starts barking again and do this consistently and repeatedly until they stop. Tip Never, ever hit your dog. A light touch is all that is needed to distract your dog. Step 2: Stay calm Stay calm while you are repeating the corrections. Don't get frustrated, and don't break away from the consistent correction. Know that your dog will pay attention and mirror your energy. Step 3: Be assertive Be assertive in your physical posture. Focus your body and calm energy on blocking the dog from the stimulus that seems to be causing the barking. Concentrate and remain calm to let your dog know that you are in charge and that the dog doesn't need to worry about the stimulus. Tip Reinforce good behavior by giving your dog affection, like belly rubs or hugs. Withhold affection when the dog is doing something bad like barking or begging. Step 4: Give your dog more exercise and activities Give your dog more exercise and mental activities to let them have an outlet for their energy. Take them on an uphill walk or a hike instead of the normal daily walk. Train your dog in herding or agility activities for mental stimulation. Step 5: Consult a professional dog trainer Consult with a professional dog trainer if you aren't able to control the bad behavior. Know that your dog -- and your neighbors -- will appreciate it.
