why does my dog keep barking at me
I think Fannie is spot-on. I will add some conditioning tips. I find with dogs who are very set in their ways, using a water bottle like they use in salons to spritz the barking with can help let the dog know that barking is not cool. When the dogs barks at you, also look at the ceiling. Let the dog know that barking is going to have the opposite effect. he will be shunned. If he gently sets his chin on your lap or foot. that gets petting. (I wrote this in a note on building confidence in dogs, but it can also apply to leadership)
We spend a lot of time teaching dogs to БcomeБ. But teaching them to БgoБ is really important, too. This is a thing that seems like the exact opposite of what a needy, insecure dog requires, but the payoff is big. (IБm going to use the needy girlfriend analogy again, and donБt get mad, because I was once one of these myself. ) It goes kind of like this: БOMG, since this morning I have called him like 10 times, and texted, and I left him messages, and I left some muffins at his desk where he works, and I have not heard from him!!!
He must not love me! Maybe I should have left coffee. In a thermos. Or the muffins in a warmer. I mean, itБs 9 am already! Б If your dog is always following you around, rolling around on the floor in front of you, pawing at you, climbing on you, rubbing against you like a cat, bringing you toys, licking your skin off, etc, then thatБs the dog version. Your dog feels that if she does not work to get your attention, you will never see her. Step one in ending this cycle is not to reward the texts and phone calls with texts and phone calls. At least, not with a dog. Step one is to get her to give you some space. Ask her to Бback offБ and Бgo lie downБ or Бgo be a dogБ. This must be said with a flat affect. You must look at the ceiling or into the far distance - anywhere but the dog. You must wave your hand in her general direction, like a wagging tail as you walk off. You must be very calm and committed to it. If this sounds like a disdainful monarch on a throne dismissing a peasant, yeah, itБs kind of like that.
But itБs okay. She is a dog. She will try to get into your line of vision, rub against your hand or legs. Be firm in denying her existence. It can take as long as 4 minutes, but usually wonБt. This is actually how dogs communicate with each other: БNot nowБ You can raise your upper lip a little if you want (again with the disdainful monarch, but same thing. If you want to say something to a human, you use English. For dogs, this really isn't an option. If you're wondering, БWhy does my dog bark at me when I leave the house? Б you may as well be wondering, БWhy do I speak? Б Barking is your dogБs way of communicating. How Do I Stop My Dog From Barking When I Leave?
