Shockingly, some owners do debarking for their dog, which is softening the barks of the dog by cutting the dog’s vocal chords to make its barks more like whispers instead of normal loud barks, which is not acceptable at all to do. You can better train your dog not to bark without a reason. Sometimes the barking turns out to be very annoying, not only for you, it’s also for your neighbors. And here we will tell you how to train your dog not to bark in your apartment.
1- Don’t yell at your dog when it barks, it’s like you are barking back, and it won’t let him stop! If it has no reasons for barks, ignore it for as long as you can, keep quiet and don’t talk, and when it calms down and stops the bark, give it a treat.
2- Try to figure out the reason of the barks or the motivation of them, and then solve this motivation or stop it. If your dog is barking at something it sees from the window, close it!
