It is quite natural for your Scottish terrier to bark when he sees other animals, strangers or visitors to your home. It is his instinctive way of communication and should not be completely inhibited through training.
However, excessive, unwanted barking is a problem not only to you but also to your neighbors. Let’s face it: few things can be as annoying in a quiet neighborhood as a dog that keeps barking all day or all night.
As with any dog, your Scottish terrier barks for a reason that may not always be easily perceived by you. Barking is often related to boredom. Being left on his own, lack of exercise or toys to play with can lead him to start making all kinds of noise. There are several other reasons for your Scottish terrier to bark like being hungry or thirsty, needing to go out to relieve himself, or simply trying to get your attention.
Do you want to definitely eliminate your Scottish terrier’s excessive barking?
Here are three simple steps to curb your Scottie’s barking habit:
1. Keep him busy with regular exercise and toys.
2. Whenever possible remove or hide what causes him to bark.
3. Approach him and say a firm “quiet” or “stop barking” command followed by a reward or praise. This is an effective way to stop his barking. If he barks to get your attention, do not look at him. Only pay attention to him when he stops barking.
Curbing your Scottish terrier’s barking habit is not an overnight achievement. It requires constant and repeated training to be accomplished.
