How To Stop Dog from Barking At Washing Machine
For any of you struggling with how to stop dog barking, especially dog’s who bark at certain types of noise, I thought this video would be helpful:
What I really like about this video is when the trainer talks about how we need to realize that the reason our dog’s are barking is to communicate an underlying emotion.
Traditional training techniques seek to PUNISH the communication, where newer training strategies like the one being used by the trainer in this video, attempt to change the emotional reaction that causes the annoying communication.
So the next time you find yourself wanting to punish your dog’s communication, try to think about what the underlying emotion of that behavior is.
Treat your dog’s emotions like personal workout trainers approach working with a new client who’s never been in a gym and who’s bodies aren’t in the physical condition to go all out right away.
Our dog’s emotions are a LOT like a person’s muscles who’ve never been to the gym… they need to practice on some easy weights before they’re ready for the big stuff.
I thought this video expressed that perfectly, which is why I wanted to share it with you.
Please leave me any questions if you have them!
