Barking is one of the most common struggles for deaf dog parents. It can put such a strain on your relationships – not just the one that you have with your dog but also relationships with your neighbors, your loved ones and your visitors. No one wants notes from angry neighbors, or worse, your local authorities.

And the stress that barking causes can lead some folks down the path of using certain tools that make it uncomfortable, startling or even painful for the dog if they bark. I’m here to reassure you that there is another way.

In this video, I break it all down – why dogs bark, how to work out what’s causing your dog’s barking, and a three step plan to guide you to a more harmonious household. Plus, in the YouTube video description, there’s a link to some free worksheets. Write down your dog’s triggers and use this info to develop your plan. Then use the Barking Diary to track your progress over time. Each week you can look back and celebrate your wins – or see clearly what needs tweaking.

If this sounds like something your household could use then be sure to check out the video below.
