Stopping a dog from barking when people knock at the door is a pretty popular request as Omaha’s resident dog behavior expert. I like to use a combination of desensitization and counterconditioning to stop dog barking and go over how to do so in the free positive dog training video below.

When people ask me how to stop a dog from barking at knocks at the door, this is pretty much it. Obviously I do some customization, but the secret to stopping a dog from barking is summed up in the above video.

I covered a number of other dog behavior tips in this in home Omaha dog training session. You can learn about them and get other dog behavior secrets by watching the roadmap to success video below.
