I've read one of the dog trainer suggestion about distraction technique and wondering what everyone else thinks.
The solution is offering your dog with some yummy treats, something your furry friend not normally gets.
For example, when your dog spots a kid, immediately distract her with the treat and retreat your furry friend when encountering in closer distance.
She said from dog's point of view, there is a connection between kids and cheese (see kids = get reward). This will decrease the motivation to bark.
Do you think this is the best way to stop your dog from barking at kids?
