The best way to stop your dog from barking is training and patience.

Why is your dog barking? Where?

I agree with Beachdown, find out the root cause of the barking. At times I want my dogs to bark, strangers entering the yard or strange noise at night. When they play they may bark. When wife or I come home from work, they bark. Just happy to see us. Curbing the unnecessary barking is some work and time. The research I did on the collars for most part say they are useless.

You need to teach your dog the "quiet" command. Actually, you need to teach him the "bark" command first, then quiet.

Dogs bark for a number of reasons; I have two dachshunds that while in the backyard with my shih tzu will bark at absolutely nothing (they are notorious for that) and the shih tzu won't make a sound.

I've fostered numerous dogs and numerous dogs at one time and the best sort of collar to get for a dog to stop barking, without the cruelty of shock collar is a citronella bark collar.

I have a 7 month old Morkie who is a barking fiend!

He's not aggressive at all, but definitely comes off that way when he's overstimulated. In particular, on walks he goes nuts over bikes, kids or people (of his choosing). We've tried a number of different things, and he just doesn't seem to stop. During training, even the trainer had a really hard time, as he loved getting the last word in! She actually recommended a citronella collar, but I'm not sure yet if we should. In my opinion, he's a very clever dog, as he often picks up tricks very quickly.

She also recommended a muzzle for walks or periods of over-stimulation, but I've found that just makes him really depressed, and I don't want to do that anymore.

Anyone have any other techniques/advice to control barking?

Did you try clicker training?
