How to stop a Siberian husky from barking
When your husky barks, the first step you should take is to see if the behavior is appropriate. Most of the time the barking is excessive and can be controlled; however, it is guaranteed that it is your responsibility to meet the needs of your Siberian Husky. If you feel that your husky’s barking is excessive or needs to be controlled, you should ask yourself the following three questions:
When does my husky bark? What is my husky barking at? Are there specific triggers for my hoarse barking?
One method that does not work to prevent your Siberian husky from barking is to yell at you if he is barking because he is protecting his territory or is alarmed. Yelling at your husky in specific cases can result in biting or other forms of aggression. You want to train your Siberian husky to behave and not misbehave. Also, when you yell at your husky, he doesn’t understand what you’re saying, and while it can stop the barking, it doesn’t fix the reason he was barking. To better control and even prevent your Siberian Husky from barking, you need to understand why he is barking.
It becomes your job as a leader to build or create an environment where your husky does not feel the need to defend himself. You must take control of the house and become the alpha leader. Your role is to show your husky that you are in charge of protecting that specific territory. Specific things you can do around the house are to close blinds to hide the postman, put up fences that prevent your Siberian husky from seeing outside the yard, and make sure to prevent the husky from having open access to windows. Stop barking at dogs with anxiety
How Do You Stop Your Siberian Husky’s Barking When He Has Anxiety Issues? It is important to understand that the barking can be the result of something much greater. The husky wants your attention and will often bark until he receives attention. Most of the time, your husky took an action that you rewarded him for in the past and he wants that reward again. When you return home to your barking husky, you usually get very excited. You usually pay attention to them right away when you get home. To prevent your husky from associating your return with attention, which may be the cause of your anxiety, ignore your husky for about 10 to 15 minutes when you get home.
Finally, to control your husky’s barking, you must teach him commands to be quiet and how to speak. By creating these commands, you will be able to better control the behavior of your Siberian husky. You will be able to control his barking when it is not necessary, but when it is necessary your husky will not be afraid to alert you. If there is an intruder, you want your husky to alert you, but if it is a relative or family member, you may not want to.
A barking Siberian Husky does not have to be a burden to the community. If you start early enough, you can stop your Siberian husky from barking and avoid angry neighbors complaining that their beautiful, precious husky was barking all day.
