How to Stop Dog From Barking All the Time

One of the most-asked questions that dog professionals get is, “how do I stop my dog from barking all the time?” If you’re someone who would ask that, take a deep breath and relax. We know you love your dog and want to help in any way you can. So we’ve brought you some simple ideas, training techniques, and some very cool products that we think will keep your furry friend firmly out of trouble.

So let’s dive in and see what they are!

Keep Your Canine Calm!

One thing to consider right from the start is that calm dogs are much less likely to be big yappers! So the trick is to find ways to get them into that state of mind. And it can be easier than you might think.

Some barking is acceptable as it’s a natural behavior for dogs and one of the ways they communicate. And how much your dog barks will be determined by breed, temperament, and environment. Some naturally bark more than others.

But bottom line, if your pooch is just trying to tell you that someone’s at the door or that their collar’s caught in something, but stops once they see you’re taking care of the problem, this is acceptable behavior. However, if your dog won’t stop once you tell them, you might have a problem.

Excessive barkers are not only annoying to you and your family, but they also tend to annoy the neighbors. And you don’t want any of that!

So, what works to calm those canines?


Your dog may bark a lot if they have pent-up energy or feeling bored. So challenge your pup with more exercise. That’s a pretty easy fix for most people. Need any ideas for how to do that? Check these out:
