stop dog barking

well, first realize that barking isnt bad. Excess barking is bad. Barking to warn you that someone is trying to break into your home is great!barking about a gas leak, the baby crying or smoke or a fire is also a plus. barking because a butterfly landed in a bush a block away is nonsense. IF the dog is still barking ten minutes after the mailman left, or if he wont stop barking when you tell him to , youve got a problem.

Our neighbors dog was barking ALL the time, which is new because he had never done it before. We finally figured out that they had a new puppy and were sticking the older dog outside. Finally enough people complained that they are no longer doing it...lets hope it stays that way. Its a training issue and if your willing to put in the time you can help the dog stop the uncontrollable barking. My neighbors dog just didn't like being alone outside as he has always been an indoor dog.
