how to stop dog growling
If you want to know how to stop a dog growling, it’s easy. First, you must stop your dog from barking or growling at all. This can be done through training your dog properly and through patience.
If you catch your dog outside and he barks at someone or something, you need to turn around quickly and get away. If you’re outside and your dog barks at someone, get out of the area and let your dog know that it’s not acceptable to bark. If your dog has barked at someone, yell at him.
If your dog does bark at someone, yell and scream at your dog and then give him a firm, “No!” Also, if your dog starts growling at someone, make yourself very visible by crouching down and walking slowly towards the person. If you’re using a loud noise, hold your dog close to you with one hand and a sharp object with the other hand.
You can actually punish your dog by limiting what he can eat. That will teach him how to behave. If you do this consistently, your dog will understand and you won’t have to punish him. However, if you’re on a tight budget, this method is less effective.
You can try treating training, too. I don’t know about you, but I eat way too much food, and it is far more satisfying to just use your fingers to take food from my dog. If you do this, make sure you give him treats at least once a day, sometimes more. If you let him have some sort of reward, it will act as a form of punishment.
To train your dog to stop howling at you, simply walk in front of him and stop. You can also try moving to a position where you and your dog are approximately the same distance away. If your dog whines, try approaching him slowly while he’s still walking.
Never approach him while he’s growling. Growling is a natural behavior for your dog, so you must continue to ignore him. Also, whenever you’re next to him, take his attention by smiling or giving him a small treat.
Dog owners know that most people like to pet their dogs. This is a natural reaction, so your dog probably wants to play with you as well. The easiest way to win this game is to keep your dog distracted.
Give him lots of praise and not only the quiet sounds of dogs barking and deep, calming gurgles. If you allow him to be with his own toys and chewables, he will soon begin to associate them with praise. It won’t take long to see how it makes him feel good. On the other hand, if you leave the house when he barks, your dog will begin to associate all the noise with the time he has to be gone.
Use positive reinforcement. Praise him and say hello whenever he barks or learns a new command.
These are the easy ways to learn how to stop dog growling. You’ll soon learn that you can really eliminate your dog’s aggression when you use these simple steps.
