Take a look at our Before and After video of dealing with Excessive barking, with Arnold the Miniature Dachshund. Arnold joined our 3 week Complete Training Programme for obedience training. One of the main concerns Arnold’s owners had was his excessive barking. Arnold is quite a nervous dog and would bark at people entering the house or pass by. In order to tackle this problem, we worked on building his confidence and pairing positive associations with people. Arnold had also learned that he could get attention from barking, so we taught him that when he is quiet and gives eye contact, he will then be rewarded with either a toy or some fuss. Take a look at the video and see how well he did.
