How To Get A Dog To Stop Barking

An Easy Reading Guide For Pet Owners

How To Stop Your Dog From Barking

Your dog barks a lot, Right? And it’s annoying you and maybe your neighbors big time?

Few things in life can drive you crazy like a constantly barking dog going on from dawn to dusk – sometimes all night as well and it’s infuriating when you can’t do something about it.

It's a pity they don't get sore throats like us sometimes isn't it...

Here's one way round it...



This is the type of barking that happens when you leave, and whether they have that deep shuddering “Woof, woof, woof” or that ear piercing “Yap, Yap, Yap” it can do your head in very quickly.

The great news for you is that barking is not something that dogs need to do in the normal run of things. In fact, generally speaking barking is a sign of stress, frustration, anxiety or over excitement and none of these emotions are particularly good for your dog.

Or you as well, for that matter!

In truth, a relaxed and contented dog does not need to bark at all!


So let’s take a look at one specific type of barking and get you started on putting a stop to it…

Having your dog barking when you are not at home is a very common issue worldwide and the first time you are made aware of it is when a friend or neighbor, or even worse, the dog control officer pays you a visit.

The key to stopping this frustrating barking is understanding why it happens in the first place, allowing you to provide a remedy for the cause rather than treating the annoying symptoms.


Now bear with me on this one for a moment… You MUST remember you have to see it all through your dog’s eyes!


So think of it like this…

Your dog is a pack animal and naturally understands that there are leaders and followers in any group. And the main job of the pack leader is to protect the pack.

So when on Monday morning everybody leaves the house to go to work and leaves the dog at home alone they become stressed… and so would you if you lost your pack!


That’s the reason why they're stressed and barking. They are calling out to you to come back. They are trying to do what they feel is their purpose in life.

Think about it… If you are a parent with a youngster, one of your main jobs is to keep that child safe, so you keep an eye on them all the time, all over the house, so you know where they are. They are safe and you are relaxed.


If they suddenly walked out of the house and shut the front door behind them locking you in what would you do?

Chase after them? Of course…

But looking at it from the dog’s point of view, what if the door was locked and you couldn’t open in. And all the other doors and windows are locked. Then what would you do…

Phone for help? Your dog doesn't have that option!

The next best thing is shout for help and let anybody know? Well that is exactly what your dog is doing…

You certainly wouldn't sit down, relax and have a cup of tea, knowing your young child was wandering around the streets alone, would you?

Are you starting to see why your dog is stressed and barking when you leave now?

And all those other annoying behaviors such as chewing shoes and furniture and trying to dig under the fence, or jump over the fence that only happen when you're not around… Yep, that’s right. They are all symptoms of a stressed dog that’s desperately concerned about you not being home and safe. Remember your dog can’t speak English to tell you any of this!


So what’s the solution? How do you put a stop to it?
Well it’s almost certainly not giving them a bone to chew on whilst you are away. Imagine saying to the parent who is totally stressed that their young child is out on the streets… “Don’t worry, here’s a box of chocolates”!


You may love chocolates but it is not going to work in this situation.

In the same way toys jammed full of food and other distractions do not treat the cause of the problem. They are only treating the symptoms and so may happen to work, if you’re lucky, for half an hour or so – max – but no way will it be for the long term.

More than likely most of you will know that this doesn't work because you've already tried it!

The solution is actually very simple. You need to become the pack leader in your dog’s eyes and make your dog accept this. Once you do this correctly your dog will not see it as their job to protect you. You will be able to come and go as you please and they will be totally relaxed.

This is the real solution to having a calm relaxed dog. No tricks here, just an honest understanding of your dog’s behavior.

Now, becoming the pack leader is not complicated in any way. Anyone can do it and it does no harm at all to your dog; however it's not really something that can be explained in 2 minutes here but this Free Every Day Dog Training PDF may go some way to helping you understand.


You will see how Dogy Dan explains very powerfully how to establish yourself as the pack leader and stop dogs from barking when you leave them.

Here though are a few additional tips that you can use in conjunction with becoming the pack leader that will help stop your dog's barking.

  • Exercise you dog before you leave him - a tired dog is more likely to relax
  • Find the right space: Try leaving your dog in different areas as some dogs will relax more outside, others inside and some prefer smaller areas like washrooms
  • Always leave water down and make sure your dog is warm and fed before you leave
  • Remove any bones, but do leave toys around for him
  • Music or the tv being left on can help as a distraction
  • There are some herbal remedies to help relax your dog, although these do not in any way treat the root causes of the problem, they simply dope the dog up and cost a fortune in the long run
  • A break in the middle of the day using a dog walking service can help
  • When you leave make a point of leaving calmly so your dog stays relaxed
  • Comfort jackets have been tried, but they are expensive and do not cover the root cause of your dogs problem so are not recommended other than for very thin coated dogs

Contrary to the belief that getting another dog for company is going to stop the problem is something I would stay well away from. Remember the source of your dog’s problem barking is not boredom. After all, many dogs who bark all day when the owners leave are the same dogs who lie around the house doing nothing most of the weekend when they are at home!


So with all that said hopefully now you have a far better understanding of your dog's problem!

I would suggest if you are really serious about stopping the barking immediately for your own benefit as well as your neighbors, then take a look at this FREE Dog Training PDF and become the pack leader. That will be the end of your issue.

It’s not hard but you have to understand your dog's problem through their eyes rather than human eyes! They do not want more bones or biscuits shoved into a ball – what they want is a strong pack leader.

So get started now, check out the free pdf right now, don’t hang around. The sooner you turn things around the sooner your neighbors will be thanking you for it!
