I trained my dog this way when she was a puppy. I put coins in a plastic water bottle that i had squished up and would shake it everytime she barked and say “No bark!” She barely barks now. It’s actually something I sometimes wish I didn’t do because now she doesn’t even bark when someone is at the dark – not sure if she ever wuold have, but we live in an apt bldg and I didn’t want her barking everytime we left the apt. She does whimper sometimes when we leave, but it’s for a few seconds and then she gets distracted – and that’s only if we forgot to throw her a treat or she finished it before we ran out the door lol.

I used a water gun ~ on my own dog. It happened on accident and now he has water bottles that all he has to do is see them and he knows to hush!

@Deejayelle:  I didn’t want to be THAT neighbor — he (mini schnauzer) found his voice and thought he could talk back all the time — I blame myself; after I got him I got located to Texas and was gone about 3 months after getting him at 6 weeks & I felt so bad I’d call and leave him voicemails and the answering machine would play it as I recorded and then my mom would play it again.. he still thinks phone calls are for him.. but he CANNOT be the barker in this hood! I tried all the ultrasonic or whatever tools. Lots of dollars and was about to try a spray collar to avoid the shocking ones and this happened and it was MAGIC <and amusing!>

I will try this for my own dogs lol. We live I. An apt and whenever I walk them one of my dogs barks when he sees little kids. Sigh. Also he likes being on the balcony but he barks when he sees people. I usually get him after a couple of barks but he has a loud bark! :/
