Helping Jack not to bark
by: Barbara

I literally just posted this video for someone else. I found it very helpful for getting my Jack not to bark at the vacuum cleaner.

Begin by exposing your dog to an intensity level of noise that doesn't frighten him and pairing the noise with something pleasant, like a treat or a fun game. Gradually increase the volume as you continue to offer her something pleasant. Through this process, he'll come to associate "good things" with the previously feared sound. THe youtube video I posted does a good job of explaining this.

Good luck!
