Your dog gets some kind of reward when he barks. Otherwise, he wouldn’t do it. Figure out what he gets out of barking and remove it. Don’t give your dog the opportunity to continue the barking behaviour.
Example: barking at passersby
- If he barks at people or animals passing by the living room window, manage his behaviour by closing the curtains or putting your dog in another room.
- If he barks at passersby when he’s in the yard, bring him into the house. Never leave your dog outside unsupervised all day and night.
