Train to Stop Barking?
Ever since Ariel's injury a few months ago, I've noticed that she barks more often now -- especially at people. She would sometimes bark at random strangers when at the park & even bark at family members. Any ideas on how to stop this?
I've done "Quiet" in a firm voice and she does stop in THAT moment, but she'll bark again after awhile.

I am bumping this bc I have the same problem with Daisy. Ever since we got Pixie Daisy has become a barker and it is a bark that is high pitched!
I tried what the dog whisperer said praise every time she barks and say good girl bark and only give a treat if she barks and then whe she gets use to that wait till she barks and say quiet firmly and only give a treat when she is quiet. It helps but she still barks for every lil thing!!

My 3 month old has started to bark when I tell her NO!!. My sister took her dog to puppy training and they told her to hold her mouth shut. Not squeeze just don't allow her to open her mouth, then put her down and if she barks repeat. She said it works, Molly's barking is so shrill it about makes my ears bleed.

Hi, I have stopped most of the barking when Daisy hears someone walk past or an outside noise by teaching her to come to me when she starts to bark,so now she give's just one bark then runs to me, sometimes she just stands on her back legs and I stroke her and she soon forgets about the noise,if I think a noise needs investigating I then carry her while I check it out.the only time she forgets to come to me is if something comes through the letter box she then gets so excited and barks continuously while running round in circles then I have to shout come here.If someone is at the door she barks with excitment she loves visitors so before I open the door I tell her to get in her bed which she does this stops her barking and maybe running out the door in the excitment she is a tiny 4lb little girl.
She is a quick learner and makes me laugh as she tries to control me, she makes fast little stamping movements at me, to get my attention, if I dont take any notice she will add a little gruff noise I say" what do you want " she might then repeatly put out her tongue which means food.or take me to her coat, which means walkies.or to the back door if she wants to go in the garden.or indicate she wants to go to bed .which means she takes me to the back door and when she has been out takes me to her crate where she sleeps.and then never a peep till morning in all the two years I have had her.

Share with us how you trained your dog to come to you when she barks. I really like this approach, because I want Millie to let me know when something is spooking her or someone is here. But I need her to quit when I tell her to.
Millie will bark at everything outside while the door is open, but it is much worse when anyone comes to the door and/or the kids have friends over.
I really need to get a handle on this before we are the ones people won't come to see because of our little yappy dog.

Does anyone else have a Yorkie who barks at the oven? and anything that comes out of it (pans, etc.)! He 'attacks' anything I leave in there, barking all the time, and keeps on til I put whatever back. I've tried everything - even putting the pans, etc., on the floor for him to investigate and pronounce safe!!

Most of these cases sound like your dogs are taking control, or they think they have to take control bc they don't feel that you are handling the situations properly.
You have to make yourself more alpha in their eyes. If they are at a door barking, walk over and place yourself between them and the door and take little steps to get them to back away. You are claiming the door and foyer. If alert barking, position yourself as above, tell the dog 'thankyou' and teach the dog to go to his/her spot, bed, or somewhere away from the door. When they see you are controlling the situation, they should stop the barking.
As for the oven, sometimes you just really have to put your foot down and let the dog know this behavior is unacceptable. Mine will go after the vacuum, if I let her. I use a very firm 'No, go lay down' which normally works, when it doesn't, I have to turn off the vacuum and repeat the command. All depends on her mental status that day. Maybe it would help to teach the dog to stay out of the kitchen while you're cooking and/or having meals. Place him in the doorway and teach him sit stay there. Maybe if he's further away he'll be less inclined to bark. If you must have him in the kitchen, only allow him in when he's quiet, and take him out when he starts barking. But you can't allow the slightest bark ever, he'll begin to think it's okay again.
