Dogs bark. Big surprise, right? We all know this about dogs but it can still be a little frustrating when the barking continues on for too long or happens at a time we wish it wouldn’t. So what is an easy way to decrease the barking? Let’s take a look.
Getting the barking under control in some situations can be very easy. This is where “management” comes into play. If your dog has a tendency to bark at things out of the window then you can place things on the window to cut off the visual. The obvious most common devices are blinds or shades. They work by blocking the visual stimuli. The downfall though is they block out the natural light from coming in.
At my house we installed a “frosted glass” window sticker. Our front door, which you can see in the photos is made up of a lot of windows and we recently moved into a home that has a decent amount of foot traffic in front. This sticker works perfectly to prevent our three dogs from seeing people and other dogs passing by. It also works great because it prevents people from being able to see in. And as I already mentioned, we still get the natural light through the stickers.
You can purchase these stickers online or at your nearest big box hardware store. They’re relatively inexpensive and they’re reusable!
