In the video below I’m going to give you on easy tip to fix your dog’s doorbell barking

Most dogs love barking at the sound of the doorbell when company comes over or a package is delivered.

Dogs Feel Like Warriors Guarding the Home

Why? The problem here is that the doorbell rings, the dog barks and the “big bad thing” goes away.

His job is done and in his mind, he’s a hero.

Yelling at the dog doesn’t work.

You can’t put the dog in another room since most times you don’t know when the bell will ring.

This means your dog gets to practice his barks at the doorbell – a lot.

All that practice means, his barking at the now hated door bell is his default behavior.

You hate this but can’t figure out an easy way to fix it.

Have you “borrowed” a neighbor’s kid to ring the bell so you can quickly grab the dog and make him sit?

You might get 3 or 4 practice runs doing it this way.

Maybe you’ve even walked around with a squirt bottle, waiting for the bell to ring so you can give your dog

a good shot of water the minute he starts to bark at the doorbell.

Technology To The Barking Doorbell Problem

In this video I’m going to show you a super simple trick to use to stop your dog from barking every
