Dogs communicate with barks…
…and if your dog is barking, there is usually a reason for it.
This training exercise in no way teaches your dog to attack but to use a simple method to make your dog understand you.
Dogs may hear something that we can’t, or they may just bark out of boredom, they may bark just to hear sounds and stay busy!
Start his training with his collar and leash, if he barks while on the leash a sharp jerk and a firm “no” will show him that his barking is wrong.
You can teach your dog to bark on command even if you don’t expect it to actually protect you. A barking dog is a superb protection and an outstanding burglar alarm, but you need the ability to control your dogs barking.
