What can I do about barking dogs?!
Now that the weather is nice, your windows are cracked open, and the neighbor's dogs are spending more time outside. As a result, you may be hearing a lot of barking, and no matter how loud you turn up your music, the barking is still there! Frustrating! What is the proper way to address your neighbors or the dog itself?
Yelling out the window or banging on the fence will only perpetuate the behavior. These things may temporarily distract the dog from barking, but these are inappropriate ways to treat the dog.
First, you need to have a civil conversation with your neighbor. They are probably at work all day, and aren't aware that their dog is barking. This conversation should happen when you are not angry or fed up with the barking; you need to be level-headed. Keep in mind that you and your neighbor have something in common: you both have dogs, and you both want to take excellent care of your dogs. It is important to work together to find creative solutions!

Please be sensitive to your neighbors if your dog is at home all day. Ask your neighbors if your dog barks during the day! If you learn that your dog is one of the barkers on the block, try some of the solutions above! Sign up for our newsletter to receive discounts for Training!
