Teaching the command “Quiet!”
When your dog is barking, growl a stern and guttural “Bah!”*
Then, the instant they ARE quiet, say quiet and praise heavily. You could also reward with something high value - such as dried liver pieces or some crumbs of cheese, both being stronger smelling, so usually more attractive to dogs.
Once the word association has been achieved, you can work on varying the length of the time, before you give your dog the treat for being quiet.
*Or shake a plastic bottle with pebbles in it if this proves ineffective. Or if your dog is zoning out and the barking is very intense, shake a tin (for example a Milo one) with coins in it, by your side, Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant & Dog Trainer, Dogs Best Friend.
