As I knew my dogs would love this window before I moved in, I booked a week off work so we could practise enjoying the window without barking.Living with window barkers can be extremely stressful. The repeated random barking throughout the day. Well it can turn even the most patience and calm people into an entirely different version of themselves. Combating this takes time and patience, prevention is easier but what happens when you have a window barker and a new pup who hasn’t learned this? I’m a lazy dog trainer, I like to make things as easy as possible for both myself and my dogs. This has the added bonus of being less strenuous on my body, as I live with a disability, so if there’s an easy way to do something I’m going to find it! Something passing the window can trigger your dogs Meerkat resulting in a burst of different emotions within our dogs. Excitement, frustration, fear and anxiety can all play a role when they're barking. These exercises help your dog to learn how to manage their Meerkat not just how to train your dog. We can teach them an incompatible behaviour - not barking, or settle away from the window, but here we're not treating the underlying emotion, we're not controlling the meerkat before we train our dog. We want a relaxed emotional state when our dogs are in the window. That's the goal. So we start small and build up, we cant expect calmness straight away. If your dogs are fearful or anxious, you will need additional support to help control your dogs Meetkat in the window. They're not ready for these exercises just yet. For frustration and excitement alert barkers...this is for you !" "Something passing the window can trigger your dogs Meerkat and can result in many different emotions within your dog. Excitement, frustration, fear and anxiety can all play a role when they're barking." Please note that my dogs are not anxious, they are not bored, they ‘alert bark’. It’s a ‘stuff and things’ when they get excited and see something. If your dog seems upset at the window this is not the program for you….but get in touch as I can help, you just need some additional groundwork to help your dogs Meerkat before you get to this stage.
