Dog Issue - November 7th 2018, 12:16 AM

I don't know what it is that triggers my Pomeranian excessive barking behavior. I am getting a lot of negative feedback from my neighbor, they keep on telling me to use dog shock collars to solve the problem. I am so scared to see my dog get hurt and is jumping into the conclusion that it might traumatize him in the future. Please help me out, are there any other options aside from using e-collar?

Pomeranians are very noisy dogs and often excessive bark and triggers vary. They park when they want to play, when they want food or water, a leaf blew by.
They're very energetic as you can see. Is there anyone who can give them walks in the morning? Maybe before school, you can play with the dog and play with them after school. Are there dog parks nearby?

Most chain pet stores and shelters like Petco or SPCA offer training courses and you can mention this to your trainer.
Our family believes that in a few situations, shock collars are okay (like boundaries when you own a plot of land) and many have the shock adjustable but people use it for unnecessary things. In this case, I don't recommend a shock collar.
We used kennel training for when we are away (we have one of the cousins of the Pomeranian. American Eskimo, almost as chatty) which takes a LOT of time to perfect. Kongs and bones are great and will keep them busy.

So wear the dog out and ask a trainer for additional help if you need it.

Good Luck

Hey,
So we have five dogs and a couple of them are barkers, and we hate barking dogs unless there a reason(like someones at the door, in our backyard those type of things). What we do is everytime they are we make a noise that they know means to knock it off, or if it's outside in your background then open the door and tell them no bark and if they don't stop make them come inside, if you have a dog door that you can close and they continue to bark then bring them inside and close it off.

We have also used air cans and all it is, is a can of air and when you spray it, it make a loud noise. Another thing that has worked with my moms dog is a bark collar, which isn't a shock collar(which I am totally against no matter what reason), this collar sprays them with spray when they bark and if it happen enough they will most likely not bark anymore. If they bark in the house all the time you can just have spray bottles around the house filled with water and every time they bark you just spray them with water.

We have a dog door and if the neighbors are outside in there backyards we will shut the dog door so they can't go outside and bark. We also have crates for 4 out of 5 of our dogs so when were aren't home they are inside them so they don't bark, or we just shut the dog door if we are going to be gone awhile.

I hope this information is helpful and one of these things will work for you.

Your Friend,
Frankie<3

Very cool breed of dogs, but they are a bit noisy, but I do not like them less

Thank you for providing me this insightful tips, I will try to see if it will work and if not, then that will be the time that I will use another type of bark collar. I really appreciate the meaningful insights that you guys have given me.

Hey. Maybe your dog is worried about something and is trying to tell you about it in this way. Try to take your pet to the vet and examine it.
