With Halloween approaching this week, you may be worried about how your dog will react to constant doorbell chiming. Never fear! Colleen McDaniel offers advice on how to train your dog to stop barking at the doorbell.
- Train your dog to go to a spot away from the door, using rewards.
- Then phase in ringing the doorbell as you send the dog to his new spot.
Of course, it may be a little late to start the training process for tonight, but if Hurricane Sandy pushed trick or treating back to this weekend, you’ve got the time!
