The doorbell rings. Your Pomeranian puppy barks. You pick up your their food bowl. They bark. A friend comes over to the house. Your dog barks. A leaf moves nearby on your walk. Your Pomeranian barks. The house is quiet and still. But still, your puppy barks. Pomeranians are descended from watchdogs and they take their jobs very seriously, which is why it is so important to train your Pomeranian puppy to not bark from an early age.
The main thing to keep in mind while working on this behavior is you can't expect your dog to stop barking altogether. Barking for dogs is the same as talking for humans. Your Pomeranian is using their voice to let you know what is going on in their world. While you can't silence your puppy completely, you can work on minimizing excessive barking. Helping your dog learn when to bark is not just good for your stress level, it also teaches them to control their fear and feel safe and protected.
Get ready to be patient. When training your Pomeranian puppy not to bark, keep your cool and avoid yelling at your Pom no matter how much noise you hear. Your pup doesn't hear your words. They just recognize that you are matching their volume, which will only make them bark more. Stay calm and show your dog that you have control over the situation. This attitude will make them much more likely to listen to you.
