Your dog is pretty sure that barking like this is his job and that he is proud of being able to do it. If you want your dog to bark, you need to make sure that you are not barking at the wrong thing. If you bark at something that is not a threat to you, it will only make the situation worse. The best way to prevent barking is to teach your puppy how to control his barking.
You can do this in a number of ways, but one of the most effective ways is by teaching him to sit and stay still when he hears a barking dog. This will teach him that if he does not hear the dog, he should not bark. Once he learns this, the barking will stop and you will not have to worry about him barking again.

How do I get my dog to stop barking at strangers?
Whenever your dog starts barking at a stranger, go closer to them, gently grab their muscle, and command them to be “Quiet.” This method is effective but you need to be careful not to shout as it may lead to negative reinforcement. After they remain quiet, take your hands off their muzzle and give them a treat.
If they continue to bark at you, you may have to repeat this process several times until they stop barking. If you have a dog that is aggressive toward other dogs, it is important that you take steps to prevent this behavior from escalating.

Why does my dog bark aggressively at strangers?
Dogs use aggression to defend themselves from a perceived threat and to protect their valued resources. When they are afraid, they use aggression to get the thing that scares them out of the way. Aggression in dogs is not a sign of weakness or weakness of character. Aggression is an expression of a dog’s need for dominance and control over his environment.
It is a way of asserting his dominance over other dogs, and it can be used as a means of protecting himself and his family. Dogs who are afraid of people are more likely to be aggressive toward them, because they fear that they will be hurt or killed if they do not get what they want.
This is why it is important to teach your dog that he can trust you and that you will protect him if he is in danger.
Why does my dog go crazy when we have visitors?

You can do this by ing “sit” or “stay”. If he doesn’t respond to the treat, try ing something else, such as “good boy”, “I love you” etc. Once he starts to calm down, you can give him another treat and repeat the process until he calms down.
