My dog gets walk twice a day until he is warn out and gets allot of attention but he continues to bark when every someone walks past my house.

    I have a 16month GSD bitch and she is VERY protective of me and the house, she wouldn’t harm a fly but she has the tendancy to bark at every dog and anyone walking past our house! I don’t think the collars are much good to be honest, I am using clicker training, just began by clicking and treating when ever she did anything good (after being commanded or after something she did that i like without being commanded to do so) she then learnt click = treat. Now everytime she barks at someone walking past i let her for 5 seconds, then call her away (you can use other distractions like shaking stones in a pot or a pet corretor spray) then as soon as she stops barking i thank her, click & reward. I thank her for letting me know there is someone there as she is only doing her job. When she looks like she is about to bark at another dog i get her attention click and treat before she gets the chance to bark at them. Its a slow process but its definately working!

    Collars make things worse. When you’re in, thank him, if he carries on go and look at what he seems to be barking at and then just walk away without speaking to him or looking at him.
    Get “The Dog Listener” by Jan Fennell – this will tell you why he’s barking and more on how to stop it – and don’t rely on him barking when you’re out, he’s not stupid, if there’s no-one in the house to warn, chances are he’ll keep quiet until the threat goes away.

    He’s probably barking because you can’t spell SHEPHERD correctly. Contact your dog’s breeder. They can refer you to the local kennel club for obedience lessons.

    Ive heard many methods of training your dog not to bark:
    1) this one sounds a little bit mean, but you can get a water bottle and spray it at him every time he barks.
    2) like you said you could try the collars
    3) there is another way where he will probobly still bark when your not there or when you dont do it, you can try to distract him, when he barks, like a favourite toy or play with him, NO TREATS otherwise he will think you are praising him and do it even more. If he wont listen to you try the other this method
    4) you can get some stones in a bottle and shake it when he does it, it might get his attention or it might startle him

    And dont worry if someone did ever break in he would probobly still bark at them!

    It’s in a dog’s nature to bark. They enjoy barking, and they bark for many reasons. They will bark when they want something, when they are playing, when they are establishing their territory, when they are frightened, when they are annoyed, and when they are just saying “Hi!”

    Causes for problem barking may include:

    Genetic pre-disposition (certain breeds are prone to more frequent barking)
    Improper confinement (a dog in a locked room, a dog crate or enclosed yard without shelter from the elements)
    Lack of exercise (pent-up energy is released through barking – ruled out in this case)
    Environmental sounds (other dogs, passing cars, thunder, ringing of the phone)
    Boredom (long periods without playmates or toys)
    Separation anxiety (a dog may bark for attention)

    shock collars and bark collars: These devices are recommended only after other control measures have failed and should only be used as a final resort, when all other behavioral modification methods have been tried (particularly when the dog’s life is in question). Never use a bark collar on your dog if his barking is due to separation anxiety, fears or phobias, because punishment always makes fear and anxiety behaviors.

    Teach your dog a “quiet” command. When he begins to bark at a passer-by, allow two or three barks, then say “quiet” and interrupt his barking by shaking a can filled with pennies or squirting water at his mouth with a spray bottle or squirt gun.

    Have your dog neutered (or spayed if your dog is a female) to decrease territorial behavior.

    Natural Remedies
    Luckily there are many natural ingredients used to help lessen excessive barking and help address underlying causes of excessive barking in dogs. Herbal and homeopathic remedies can provide the solution!

    Herbs such as Scutellaria laterifolia and Hypericum perforatum can help treat canine anxiety and other nervous disorders, thus providing tonic benefits for the entire nervous system. Belladonna, Cantharis and Nux vom are homeopathic ingredients used to alleviate high levels of irritability, aggression and anxiety – which may all contribute to excessive barking and behavior problems.
