That's enough

'That's enough'

Dogs love attention and they will take it from any person or dog in sight.   This is why we want to keep our dog's attention to make sure the dog understands this command it is necessary to use it when there is no risk.   You need to start by using the dog's name as well, to strengthen the command.

It may be used if your dog barks.   If the dog does not respond you must continue – but louder and with a hard tone.  

Listen:  Bonnie, that's enough.

When your dog responds you must reward it with a rub and clap and make the dog feel important because it has responded well.

Your dog will always respond as you are letting him know you are pleased that he did bark.  The barking dog shows his owner that he is alert, ready to protect his pack, the owner and friends or family.
