Barking In the Car

Mr. J asks:
My pup wants to go for car rides than barks the majority of the time. Any suggestions?

Mother:
Oh boy does this sound familiar. Let's hope we get some suggestions from all our friends since I deal with the same issues. Edward adores the car. He wants to get into every car for a ride. He barks nonstop until I try over and over to correct him. I am pretty sure I have tried everything. Suggestions would be wonderful

  1. I only bark when the radio is on. Maybe that's a way to avoid barking when we play only the doggie-charts in the car?

  3. Rocco rides nicely in a crate in the car. What about doing some crate training outside the car... rewarding quiet in the crate... very short sessions to start. And/or provide a good long-lasting chew in the crate in the car. Good luck!

  5. My guys are veteran car riders but despite being big barkers in the house, are pretty quiet in the car. Occasionally they will bark at a dog on the sidewalk, but I think it is all in the fun of the car ride.

  6. When Vaks barked a lot (and believe me, he did) mom had bought a collar which can make vibrations when she push a button. (Not electrical). When she gives him the collar on, he is silent as a mouse. In the beginning he barked, she pushed the button and he became so surprised that he stopped barking. After a little while he got a treat. It works. Now mom just have to put on the speciel collar and he keeps silent a once. She don't even have to push the button.

  8. Mom says we go unconscious the minute we get in the truck so she has no advice to offer.

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  10. Maybe you need some Different SONGS to play. Like ♫ How much is that Doggie that is QUIET? I do hope that Doggie's Fur Sale ♫ BUTT those might not be the RIGHT words fur the song... Or that rip roaring Favorite... ♫ Who Let the Dogs BARK?? Who Who?? ♫

  11. That is a tough one. You'd need someone to drive and someone to provide the reinforcement/incentive for "no bark".

  12. I wish loving car rides was a problem we had. We have the opposite!

  13. Our Mom would love some tips too. Ciara gets in the car and just lies quietly. Lightning can't wait to go for a car ride, but whines and cries the whole ride. What's up with that??? Look forward to some ideas.

    Woos- Ciara and Lightning

  14. Oh my..I don't remember. I barked ALL the time in the truck! I barked because I was SOOOO excited, so Ma took me on LOTS of rides til it was not so novel, and just an ordinary (yet FUN) thing to do. I still bark at doggies on the sidewalk, and if I don't like the look of someone in the car next to us, I gives them the Airedale 'oh no you don't!' bark ☺
    Butts, mostly I'm quiet now. I do gets treaties at red lights if I behave...hehehe
    that's all the advice I can give, good luck, and I hope you find what works!
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥

  17. What about crating him? Rewarding quietness in the crate in the house, then move to the car.

  18. I don't have any answers other than they are just excited. LOL!

  21. We bark at any dog we see when we're riding in the car. It's our job to protect our hoomans at all times!

  22. The girls are not fans of car rides...so we cannot be of any help...

  23. We enjoy car rides, but we very rarely ever make a peep from the back. Sorry, no suggestions.

  24. Sounds like an excited pup! We only bark occasionally, at animals we pass!

  25. Maybe change the radio station? Seriously - like what if the pup hates the song that comes on? If I'm here at the house, I can get up and leave the room. And I do. Especially when Rod Stewart comes on. I can't stand him. But in the car -- what's a girl to do? Fortunately, we have a touch-screen thingie that controls the radio, among other things, and I've learned how to control it with my nose.
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher
    PS: Mom said she doesn't have any helpful suggestions and doesn't know what my problem is with Rod Stewart.

  26. I didn't think I'd ever say this, but...my dog is finally FULLY trained! "The Online Dog Trainer " : ( dogtrainercommand.com ) is a WONDERFUL resource for learning how to effectively and quickly train your dog without ever leaving home. I learned great ways to teach my dog almost every single trick imaginable and how to correct the most common behavioral issues, such as barking. It is full of carefully compiled videos that allow you to watch and listen to their expert solving the exact problem you’re having with your dog, with another real dog and its owner. You can see the precise body language he uses, how the tone of his voice changes, and how the dogs respond, changing their behavior almost immediately. It’s remarkable to see how quickly my dog picked up on these methods. My dog behaves PERFECTLY now! From what I understand, the information on that website works for any age or breed of dog. I feel blessed to know my dog is trained properly and effectively.
