Bark Training

  • Step 1

    Hold a particular toy, such as a ball or squeak toy that causes your dog to bark. Give the command BARK or SPEAK.

  • Step 2

    When your dog barks say, GOOD.

  • Step 3

    Give him the toy or food as a reward and praise him.

  • Step 4

    Repeat steps 1 through 3 until your dog understands the command to bark.

  • Step 5

    When your dog understands the command, command him to bark.

  • Step 6

    After three barks say, QUIET or SILENCE or any other word(s) to command him not to bark. Praise and reward him with the toy.

  • Step 7

    Repeat steps 5 and 6 until he understands the command.

  • Step 8

    Instead of using a toy, have someone knock on the door and repeat steps 2 through 7, rewarding him with praise and affection when he succeeds.
