I have a 10 month old french bulldog who has a barking problem whenever he sees other dogs. We have two other older french bulldogs at home and even with the oldest one, who is 12 years old, he occasionally goes into barking fits which then result in her lunging at him and putting him in his place. When we go to dog parks, he tends to start barking at all the other dogs. It isnt particularly aggressive barking... its more of a nervous bark. The big dogs typically dont care, but a lot of the smaller dogs tend to cringe back. He isnt getting into fight unless other dogs snarl at him or are aggressive, but his bad habits are drawing dogs into scuffles occasionally. I’m trying to figure out the best way to break him of his bad habit and how to socialize him at this age.

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I have been in the dog field for 25 years. I am a Therapy Dog & AKC Evaluator/trainer/ as well as an assistance/service dog trainer, specializing in behavior. It will be my pleasure to help you today. It may take a few minutes for me to type a personal response or type questions regarding your situation. Your patience is very much appreciated.

Ask Your Own Dog Training Question

What type of personality does he have, is he friendly with other dogs/people or does he shy away at first?

What type of training do you do with him and how often?

Super friendly with people. Usually goes right at other dogs. He is very excited for people and dogs. Mostly just gets too excited. We did puppy socialization and I am constantly reinforcing basic training and commands, but no advanced training or behavior training. I use treat reward training which works great with chowhound frenchies

If phone is easier I can talk either right now or in about 30 minutes

Thank you for that information. At this point being so young , there does not sound like there is much impulse control.

(The phone would cost you extra)

I might try to put a wait in place when greeting other dogs and I would put a leave it in place which should stop the barking

What’s the best way to train for that?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Correct assessment. Zero impulse control

Train the wait cue, like make the pup wait to eat until you give it a release command, use the wait before getting in and out of the car and the crate. Get some toys also that teach impulse control.

I will put a link on teaching leave it. Use a variety of objects, not just food, so the dog knows it means to leave everything alone.

I might do some practice runs with someone you know that has a dog where you can pull your dog back and turn around if the leave it is not listened to. Start at a distance from each other.

Ask Your Own Dog Training Question

Remember to reward highly the the moment the dog stops barking. I would use something like chicken slivers.

Leave it should be in here

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

AlexLos Angeles, CA

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.

GPHesperia, CA

I couldn't be more satisfied! This is the site I will always come to when I need a second opinion.

JustinKernersville, NC

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.

EstherWoodstock, NY

Thank you so much for taking your time and knowledge to support my concerns. Not only did you answer my questions, you even took it a step further with replying with more pertinent information I needed to know.

I have a 1-year old maltese. He is normally very playful and really happy and (in many ways), the king of the castle. I have him trained to come, to sit, to lie down, and to stay. He is "ok" with these, but not always consistent. Lately, he has been snapping at me, which is so uncharateristic I took him to the vet to see if he was in some sort of pain, but he checked out ok. He has been snapping more and more -- like whenever my hand gets near his face or body. But -- he USED to love being cuddled to pieces. … read more
