To stop your dog from barking at strangers, let it bark 3-4 times, then stand over it and calmly give it the command, “quiet.” go to your dog and gently hold its muzzle closed with your hand and “quiet” again, then release its muzzle and step back.
If you have a dog that is aggressive toward other dogs, you may want to use negative reinforcement to get it to stop barking.
For example, if you are walking with a group of dogs and one of the dogs starts to bark at another dog, and the other dog starts barking back, the first dog can be rewarded by getting a treat from you.
You can also reward the second dog by giving it something to chew on, such as a bone or a piece of meat.

Why does my dog bark at some strangers?

How do I get my dog to stop barking and snapping at strangers?
Put your dog on a leash, with a head halter or well-fitting collar to help control his movements and prevent the dog from attacking your assistant. Your stranger should approach your dog slowly. If the dog shows signs of fear or aggression, have your assistant stop and wait.
Wait until the dog calms down and is no longer in danger. If you have a small dog, you may want to use a harness or leash instead of a collar. Your dog may not be able to walk on his own, but he will still be safe.
Why does my dog constantly bark at visitors?
If your dog barks whenever a visitor arrives, it means that they have a claim to their territory. Most dogs are wary of people venturing onto their territory and can see them as a threat to their well-being. However, if you have a dog that is fearful of strangers, you may want to consider the following tips: 1.
Make sure that you and your visitor are familiar with each other. This is especially important if the person you are visiting is unfamiliar with your pet. It is also important to be aware of the dog’s reaction to unfamiliar people, as well as the presence of other dogs in the area.
Be sure to ask the visitor if they have any allergies, and if so, how they will be handled. Also, make sure you know what time of day the visit will take place, so you can plan accordingly. You can also check the weather forecast for the day of your visit to ensure that it won’t be too cold or too hot.
How do I train my dog to be calm with visitors?
If your dog gets excited when a guest is in your home, give him a break. He needs to be in a back room away from the noise and confusion. When you put him in his crate, give him something to chew on or at least a few treats.
He has done something wrong and you want him to learn from it. If you’re not sure what to do, ask your veterinarian or a dog behaviorist for help.
What to do if your dog barks at visitors?
If he barks when you open the door, practice opening and closing your door. You can reward your dog for being calm when a door is opened by having a friend or neighbor stand at your door. If you don’t have a dog, ask your friends or neighbors to help you with this task.
You can also ask a neighbor or friend to sit on the other side of the room while you do it. If you’re not sure how to do this, you may want to ask someone you trust to watch over the dog.
