Teaching a Pack of Little Dogs Self Control to Stop Over Barking

For this Council Bluffs dog training session we worked with 5 little dogs; Millie, Baxter, Sadie, Newt and Lenny (from left) – sharing tips to help them calm down and teaching them to focus on their humans on command.

Teaching a dog to focus is pretty easy and gives you an excellent way to distract them away from things they may want to bark at or react too. Considering there are sometimes up to 5 dogs in this house, training the dogs to focus can go a long ways towards creating peace and harmony.

Baxter barked for nearly 2 hours before I let him out. When I did, I used a structured release similar to the one I used in this video. By only letting the dog out when it was not barking and on the calm side, I was able to put him in a position to succeed. In this case, a position to succeed meant not biting the dog behavior expert, lol.

To help the humans remember all the tips we shared in this in home Council Bluffs dog training session, we recorded a roadmap to success video that you can check out below.
