GoodPup Webinar Surrender Prevention Series: Barking Struggles
This is the third installment of GoodPup's new webinar series: Surrender Prevention; Addressing Common Behavioral Challenges.
During the spring webinar series, GoodPup will break down how to provide some preventive management and simple solutions for addressing a variety of common behavioral challenges experienced with the welcoming of new family members. The series begins in January with House Training struggles including common setbacks and the demands encountered within different lifestyles. Then they'll dabble into other challenges during the following months including barking, jumping, mouthiness, crate concerns and reactivity to unfamiliar people.
This month's topic is: Barking Struggles.
Is your dog a talker? Barking comes in all shapes and sizes for dogs. It can be an expression of how our dogs feel or a communication tool or just a sound they like to hear. While barking is normal for dogs, if not addressed appropriately, it can become a problematic and frustrating behavior.
In this webinar GoodPup will focus on how best to address our dogs that love to use their voice. They’ll identify the different types of barking including differentiating between emotional and non-emotional vocalization. Then they’ll explore how to prevent barking from becoming a problem along with analyzing the best practices for minimizing barking when it is a problem, even when it is emotionally charged. And, lastly they’ll talk about the tactics not to use when it comes to barking.
