Dog Training and Puppy Training in the Columbia and Lexington Area
Keeping A Dog Quiet In A Crate - It is a command so give it a word , we use HUSH.
1. Fill a spray bottle with water and set it on stream - squirt dog in face near mouth (it’s only water!) say HUSH. Be consistent and squirt every time dog barks.
2. Bang/hit top of crate or front of door with your hand, crate will rattle, tell dog HUSH.
3. Dog is in crate with leash and collar on, run handle end of leash through door, make sure door is closed, when dog barks pick up leash and do a correction (pop and release) saying HUSH.
4. If barking is persistent and dog is very stubborn, reach in crate, grab fur behind the neck and give a firm squeeze like a mama dog does with unruly pups. HUSH
