CANINE TRAINING
DOES YOUR PET BARK AT EVERYTHING THAT MOVES?


First understand why dogs bark. Chronic barking is usually due to a behavior problem.

Dogs which are left alone for long intervals tend to get lonely and bored and thus bark excessively. Do NOT be to scold it, because your dog is seeking your attention. When you scold it, you will only fuel the barking menace and every time your pet seeks some attention, it will bark.

The solution—to shower your pet with more ‘positive’ attention. Take turns with the rest of the household to play and take your pet for walks. When your pet is left alone, give it some toys to play with.

Suppose the habit of barking is hard to break through, try this trick. Squirt the dog's legs with a squirt gun, accompanied by a firm "quiet" command. This must be done while the dog is barking, but avoid yelling and screaming at all cost.
 

ARE YOU KEEPING YOUR DOGGY ENTERTAINED?


You are away at work and suddenly get disturbed by a frantic and irate neighbour who is disturbed by your dog's continual barking. No matter how you try to appease him, Mr. Angry Neighbour just won't buy your excuse and finally you are left with little or no option but put the dog for adoption or in the crèche.

Here are a few tips to tide over such trying situations:

• As a pup the dog should be trained in staying by himself. S/He must be used to hours of seclusion. Once the animal gets used to it, s/he won't be nervous when left alone.
• Boredom and excess energy are the main reasons for excessive barking. Ensure that your dog works out both.
• Walk your dog in the morning, hire help to walk him in mid day and take him for walks in the evening. The walk and the exercise ensures that the dog works out his excess energy and is less irritable.
• Toss in enough toys, food and water in the house when you leave for work. So long as the dog is pre-occupied and well-fed he is not likely to get into barking bouts
