some times we get sucked into trying to teach a dog what not to do i.e. stop obsessive barking by trying to stop the behaviour, bark collars, shake cans, yelling... but we don't think to teach them what TO do. It's some times much more effective to stop a nuisance behaviour by offering an alternate acceptable behaviour. Teach your dog what you expect of them, don't' just keep telling what you don't want without offering alternatives expecting them to figure that out.
