Help! How do I stop dog barking?

So you want to stop dog barking? Well all dogs bark, it’s their method to communicate a message. Dog barks for different reasons: to greet, to alert, out of boredom, to attract attention or when they are excited.
 
 Even though some barking from is okay, too much barking is surely annoying, especially for your neighbors and finally leading to complains. The easiest way to stop a difficult barker is to control his barking while you are at home, So here is what you need to do:
 
 1. Set up a condition where your dog will always bark. For example, you can request somebody to ring your doorbell or knock on your door.
 
 2. When your dog charges to the door and start to bark noisily, move toward your dog, grab his collar and give the command “quiet” but without shouting on him.
 
 3. If your dog stops barking, commend and reward.
 
 4. When your dog continues barking, shut his mouth with your hand, wrap your fingers around his muzzle (use both hands if needed), and give the command for your dog to keep quiet. Commend if your dog stops barking.
 
 Most dogs would be able to learn the “quiet” command with repeated training like this. Set up similar situations to “lure” your dog to bark and repeat training whenever possible.
 
 The most times you train him to stop barking the more your dog will understand and not bark.
