Stop barking on command

I have to laugh because of all the other recent barking posts. Seems to be a trend today!!

What I'm interested in teaching my boy is to halt the bark once I command it.

I don't want to train the bark out of him.. it's important to me, my family, our safety and his need to express However, hearing doorbells/door knocks (especially on TV) and car doors spawns a long bark session. I'd love to be able to issue a command after a couple barks and make it stop.

Is this possible? Thanks for any suggestions!

or a prong collar, treats and work on 'quiet" - this also works at least with our Baron.

Re: Stop barking on command

prong collar never worked for me. It made it Jax talk more. The clicker worked much better. Took her five minutes to figure it all out.

Re: Stop barking on command

Thanks for your responses... however, I have not clicker trained. What would the steps necessary be?

Do I allow him to bark and once he quiets say 'quiet' and treat?

Re: Stop barking on command

I trained both our dogs with the "leave it" command. No clicker, no prong, just gave them a treat after each time they were quiet. I found it works just as well for barking as it does for anything else they are doing (that I want them to stop......)

Re: Stop barking on command

Jaeger is over a year old. why did you wait so long to teach "no
barking". whenever my dog was being vocal i would hold him
around his face and say "no barking". you have to put him in situations to bark so you can teach "no barking". i'm thinking the occassional bark isn't enough to teach him no barking on command.
