Pro tip for dog owners having problems training their dogs not to bark.

Teach them to bark on command, and be silent on command. It may seem like the wrong thing to do, but it works. It's really difficult to get a dog to stop barking by correcting them or yelling at them, so harness that energy into a training session.

It's easy to teach a vocal dog to bark on command, and once they can bark on command, you can teach them to "shhhh" and reward them for not barking. It does wonders.
