How can I train my dog to bark?
One of my friends who is a fellow dog owner, has trained his dog to bark when he says "Say Please" How can I train my dog into doing something similar as a means to make him more obedient and well behaved?

First and foremost, you want to make sure your dog is old enough to bark. Most puppies won't bark till they are older.

If you are sure that your dog can bark, that is, it has passed the puppy stage, then you can proceed.

First, you have to select a cue word that would serve as the command. It can be 'talk' , 'speak' or 'bark'.

Next, you should have a treat for your dog. It should be something the dog likes very well like bits of chicken, liver and what have you. Also, you can get toys for the dog.

Then, you have to simulate a situation that would trigger the dog to bark. It could be a knock on the door, ringing of a bell. You could get someone to do that.

Immediately the dog bell is rung or the door knocked, the dog barks, you can say the cue word.

You should reward the dog with each successful attempts.

With time, you lengthen the period between the knock /ring and your saying the cue word. With time, the dog will come to understand and won't need the door to be knocked or the bell rung.

Alternatively, you can use the toys and hang it where they cannot reach. When you say the cue and the dog barks, you reward it by letting him (Oops, sorry, I gave a gender here) have the toy.

I hope this helps!


I think to bark, is a lesson that can be accepted by the dog itself, I myself allow my dog to establish relationships with other dogs, so they can start barking. Believe it or not, it's works.
