How do I get a dog to stop barking?! I brought home a stray puppy a little over a month ago and she has recently found her "bark" I guess you could say lol. She will sit down and bark repeatedly! Even if I'm right next to her petting her! I think she is part dachshund and she is only about 9 weeks old or so. She is sitting in my kitchen right now barking her head off and my son is trying to sleep. How can I make her keep quiet?

bah, I have a dauchshund.

We Cesar Millan style poke her and say 'cht!'.. actually, now we just have to make the magic noise and she usually stops.

Hi, That sounds stressful but I couldn't help but chuckle, thinking of a cute little puppy! I am no professional but have you tried discipline/consequences? Like pick a room (a laundry room might be good) and when she starts, go put her somewhere with a door, or where you can put up a gate. Then, she will just bark and bark, but in the beginning you may have to go in there and work with her, telling her no, stop, or use whatever word you want her to learn for the command to stop barking. Then when ever she does take a break, bring her out and praise her. Just repeat it and she should learn the consequence. Hopefully that would just teach her the command to stop when she is told, and can know when it is Ok to bark, such as someone at the door. Maybe if she doesn't stop, she needs professional training!

Good luck to you!

I'm not trying to be mean or anything...but from MY experience...all the dachshund's I've known have been seriously retarded, like to the point that I am convinced they were all a product of incest. So I'm not sure I can help at all on this one, because we lived with one of those little weasels for 6 years and it would still try to bite me if I touched it. Thank goodness I live far far away now. haha.

Thanks I will have to try that. She's doing a little better today but she's been outside most of the time.
