how do i get my 12 week old puppy to stop barking

Try to reward your puppy with their favorite food or treat when they become quiet instead.

If they continue barking, don’t engage them but instead try to ignore them or even leave the room until they become quiet.

Once they are quiet again, even if only for a few seconds pause, only then do you give a reward to them!

Puppies often bark to let you know that they need something basic, such as a restroom break.

A good rule of thumb is that a puppy can wait to relieve itself for 1 hour for every month of age.

This means that your 12-week old puppy needs to be let out or given access to a puppy training pad every 3-4 hours.
