    How do I stop my dog from barking at bad people?

    Well, I rescued a dog a few weeks ago, and I'm not sure how old she is, but I'd guess around 3 or 4. Anyway, she is a Chilean street dog, so she had been used to just roaming the streets and being abused.

    She magically appeared in front of my house one day, and let me pet her, and then became attatched to me and my family, so I decided I'd take care of her and what not. She is getting spayed next week and I'm also going to get her vacinated as well, and register her with the government.

    Anyway, she is fine with most of the neighbors, it seems she can sense good people and bad people. She hates bad people. She is very loud and vicious when it comes to them. Luckily she doesn't bite them, but she scares them, one guy LITERALLY shit his pants, it was fucking hilarious, but at the same time I can't have her going around terrorizing people.

    I know I have the internet, and can google it or something, but I don't want to, because the only community I'm apart of is the cannabis community so I'm trying here first. If no one can help, then I'll resort to google and perhaps the dog whisperer.

    I need to know how I can train her to stop loudly barking and chasing people without hitting her, and preferably without yelling at her either, as loud noises scare her.

    Does anyone have any advice? I usually have to grab her by the collar, pet her, and hold her back, multiple times a day.

    As I'm chasing after her while she's chasing after people, I say "shhhh" and "Don't yell at the neighbors". Obviously I don't think she understands english or spanish, or at least those orders, so I think that's futile.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who might have any suggestions.

    I doubt she will calm down until the guys properly greet her and show their not a dabger for her, if she feels them getting annoyed by her barking she will just get worse. And if you do anything forceful to her she will also get worse. Thats what i belive

      Well, the main neighbor she hates, I have witnessed him kicking her, and have been informed by other neighbors as well. He hates animals. So, I don't think he will be nice to her. So, he is making it worse.

      Should I perhaps force myself to be friendly to said neighbor so she thinks that he's my friend and not a threat?

      I've considered beating his drunkin ass, but she would probably just jump in and help me and tear him to shreds, so that's not something I want to have to deal with.

      Perhaps I can force him out of the neighborhood by making alcohol rehabilitation posters and taping them to his door every single day? All of the other neighbors hate him as well, so I'm really not sure what to do.

      Also, I decided I will need to invest in a security camera, that way I can catch him in the act abusing her when she's outside, and present it to the proper authorities and hopefully he will learn his lesson, but I fear then perhaps he will try to poison my dog.

        Your dog needs trained. That's all. Probably why it ended up abandoned. I trained dogs professionally for over 15 years.

        Most any dog can be trained but without being there, I don't want to give wrong advice. Generally, a leash correction and a word command (hush or stop) will normally solve the problem in a very short time.

        One thing I can predict and I'll bet I'm right. You say she likes some people and doesn't like the 'bad' ones. That usually developers into the dog simply not liking anyone outside her pack. The dog most likely needs socialized (properly) and trained.

        Seek out the assistance of a qualified trainer in your area (stay away from big box trainers like Petsmart or whatever) and take a short 6 week course. In most cases, the issue will be gone or at least, manageable.

        Good luck. Got a picture?

              You can get a collar that reacts to barking by spraying citrus oil which the dog will hate so will stop barking.

                I don't actually recommend any kind of anti-bark collar. They generally don't work without the proper training. And, with the proper training, you don't need a collar.

                  Helped my wife rehabilitate and re-home 52 dogs over a 7 year period. They ALL responded the same, since none of them had brain damage.

                  All dogs want the same thing. The want to know who the pack leader is, and what the rules of the pack are. When they don't have a leader or set of rules, the dog will become the leader and make their own rules. Tip: Most dogs suck at leading a pack and making their own rules by instinct. Let's keep that job with the owners, yeah?

                  So, super basics, dogs respond to a 'bite' from the leader when they're doing something wrong. You can simulate this by poking a finger into their ribs, just behind their front foreleg. Not hard, just enough to get their attention away from what they're barking at.

                  At the same time you poke them, make a tss! or Chh! or other sound. Make this sound every time you correct the dog. Later, you'll be able to use this noise when you're too far away from them to poke them.

                  Exercise the dog until they are tired, then go to a place where you know LOTS of people the dog barks at will be. Sit with the dog quietly and correct them EVERY time they react in a way you don't want. Repeat this daily, or every few days, until the dog will respond with only the sound. You'll be surprised how quickly even the most stubborn dog will respond.

                  It takes time, it takes dedication and it takes consistency, just like kids. lol When you're done though, the dog will be MUCH happier and healthier due to the reduced stress they have through knowing the rules.

                    I don't know where you live but in Indiana if you have beware of dog and no trespassing signs on your property and somebody gets bitten it's their fault not yours or your dog. I train my dog at a very young age, I imagine training a grown dog will not be easy.

                      Old dogs train just as well as young dogs. Doug is right. Although, I wouldn't poke a dog (he knows it's you. And, some dogs might respond by trying to nip/bite your hand). I would use a leash correction. It simulates the nip in the neck that Mom would do. And, it doesn't become a contest to make sure you get your hand away from poking him before he nips you. Otherwise, Doug had it pretty much spot on. JME YMMV

                          lol, very important info, yes. lol The leash works very well indeed. Ceasar "The Dog Whisperer" and such shows have a lot of great info on leash training and it's benefits.

                          Over this time period we had several red-zone cases which were violent toward everyone. Those dogs you did not poke, you are quite correct. With cannabis sedation and leash training, it's amazing what you can accomplish, and with one exception they all came around quickly.

                          We had one dog... didn't understand english, hated kids, people wearing ball caps, anyone with a cane, mothers holding babies, the list of triggers went on and on. This is not a dog you handle without understanding dog training. After 6 months, we finally broke down and ordered a shock collar which is something I ONLY recommend for cases like this. If you're not a professional or very well educated on dogs, please stay away from shock collars.

                          15 minutes of proper use and that dog was nearly 100% better at listening. Absolutely amazing response, and within weeks she was paying attention, leash training properly, not attacking animals or people, just awesome.

                          We'd hold up the collar and she would get all excited. lol She loved the thing. She'd go off barking at one of her triggers, we'd give her the Ch! noise and a mild shock, and she'd sit and look up like "Oh! You're talking to me? What do you want?" with a big ole grin on her face. lol

                          Dogs are simple. Do some research, take your time, be patient and consistent, and they'll love you for it.

                            A female dog tends to be more "over protective" of their owner, plus, dogs can smell "fear",or, what you call "bad people"
                            The problem is caused sometimes by the owner, by over peting/spoiling the dog,especially when a puppy

                              Dogs are the best!

                              im guilty of such things as spoiling/overfeeding I used to blame it on my butcher giving such great deals on meat bundles .....frozen hamburger balls just seemed appropriate lmao. I digress now that she has a better exercise routine her hips are better. Theres alot to be said about positive interactions with other dogs/owners and just plain being active with the dog. After four years with my current knucklehead i am now allowing her to"navigate" our walks as long as her prey drive does not show up we usually do ok. A well interacted dog gives that satisfied look in their eyes like "this human fuken gets it"......and i love her with all my heart believe that!
