How to fight, what to do when a dog barks at other dogs?
- Start a special "fence" training at once, as soon as you notice that the dog began to show curiosity to the fence and the dogs behind it. To begin with, stand away from the fence and beckon to yourself when showing interest in the fence. Did your team - praise.
- If, during your walk with the dog, a neighbor's dog has suddenly started screaming, and you know for sure that now and yours is rushing to dog talks in high tones - immediately beckon to yourself, switching the dog's attention to obedience to the master. The goal is to train you to pay attention to yourself, and not to the fence and the dog behind it.
