Shih Tzu Dog Training – How To Manipulate Woofing

By Jason Fowler

Shih Tzu training means controlling some behavior that is tough to get at. Excess barking might be one activity that’s terribly hard to stop. Here’s one way that may work for you and your pet.

Excess barking by any dog infrequently bothers a dog. It irritate owners and neighbors too, often just about to the breaking point. This is one of those issues that call for real planning.

Regularly the cause for the barking can be discovered with some observation and thought. It may be as simple as just solitude or boredom. In either case, extra time spent with a dog may result in additional quiet for you.

Remember that some dogs just bark a lot. All dogs bark, it’s simply when it goes on that it becomes a major nerve rattler.

A method to communicate to a pet that the noise is undesired with a training collar. The citronella spray collar could be the finest choice. Actually preferable to an electric collar which looks to be a fairly bad idea for several reasons;

This is how a citronella collar works.

Citronella oil has got this sickly sweet odor that even works as a bug repellent. Not dangerous, it actually presents an offensive smell. I will just imagine how stinky it has to be to dogs with smelling ability miles beyond ours.

The collar includes a sensor to detect barks, a reservoir for the oil and then a spray unit. All this fits in a small box with an on / off switch.

Turn it on and here’s what occurs. As soon as the dog barks, the collar sprays this cloud of mist right below the dogs jaw. Not an electrical shock results, but it does produce a shock that may border on surprising.

Our dog when presented with this device barked once, then a second time and then got quiet to think about the matter.

Those two barks were truly all it took for Belle to get the point. Not that she ever barks now. Why she even seldom wears the collar now. She quickly got the concept excess barking was a bad idea. So the collar now is on reserve for an occasional reminder that barking should be done carefully.

Shih Tzu dog training regularly can profit from the usage of a few tools. It could be that a citronella collar might be a handy tool in your box of tricks.
