The use of puzzle toys and ample exercise before they are confined can really curb their barking. Wait until they’ve stopped barking for a second to open the crate door or reward them with a treat. If they continue to bark, it’s time to take them out of their crate and place them in a different one.
This is especially important if the dog has a history of aggression toward other animals, such as other dogs, cats, or other people. It’s also important to keep in mind that if your dog is barking excessively, you may want to consider taking him to a veterinarian for an evaluation.

Why is my dog barking so much?
Dogs may bark to get attention, because they are alert to something going on around them, because they are bored, anxious, frustrated, or feeling defensive of a situation. Barking can also be a way to communicate with other dogs. If a dog is barking at another dog, the other dog may respond by barking back at the barking dog.
This is called “dog-to-dog” communication, and it is one of the most important ways that dogs communicate. Barking is also a good way for dogs to tell each other what they want and need. For example, if you want your dog to go to the bathroom, you can tell him to bark and let you know when he is going to do so.
You can then let him go when you are ready to leave the room. The same thing can be done with a cat. A cat will bark when it wants something, such as a treat or a toy, but it will also bark if it doesn’t get what it needs or wants. In this way, cats and dogs can communicate in a variety of ways.

Bark collars are cruel in that they inflict discomfort and/or pain as a method of stopping barking. The reason for the barking is not addressed by the bark collar.

It is a simple piece of metal with a loop at the end. The loop is attached to the collar by a metal clip. When the clip is pulled tight, the loop snaps shut. You can purchase a bark collar online or at your local pet store. If you can’t find one in your area, ask your veterinarian to recommend one.

Your veterinarian can help you figure out what’s causing the hearing loss and what you can do about it.
