Stop my Barking Dog

All barking is not bad! Dogs bark for many reasons, and you'll need to find out what his triggers are and work on those triggers so he will not bark. Your goal is to stop incessant barking - not by punishing him (punishing him may stop him barking that one time) but to calm him so he will not feel the need to bark.
