8 Best Stop Dog Barking Apps for Android

We have all been bothered at least once in our lives by the barking of a dog, whether it be ours, that of our neighbor or just a stray dog. It is natural for dogs to bark, whine, moan or groan, as it is their primary natural means of voice communication with humans. Barking is generally not arbitrary and may have a variety of different reasons.

Dogs generally bark to help you meet any of their physical, emotional or environmental needs. They may be hungry, thirsty, hot, cold, or in pain. They may also be bored, lonely or suffer from separation anxiety. Barking can be triggered by environmental signals such as other barking dogs, honking cars or strangers walking nearby, as well as due to improper confinement and restrictive attachment.

Identifying the root cause and eradicating it by responding to your dog’s needs would most likely solve your dog’s normal barking problem. For this type of barking, a dog training app that allows you to spend productive time with your dog might do the trick.

Here are our choices:

1. Dog Training & Clicker App by Dogo

(4.8 / 5 rating, 1M + downloads)

This app helps you teach your dog over 100 useful commands and over 70 cool tricks. It’s like a community of dog owners where they can share tips and tricks on training their dogs while participating in fun challenges and competitions. It’s a fun way to interact with your dog and help him to release his energy in a healthy and productive way, thus meeting his need for attention and reducing the discomfort and anxiety that could result from a lack of activity. The app also includes a clicker that will help you train your dog 40% faster and more efficiently. There is also a lesson you may want to find out how to train your dog to be quiet when prompted.

Conversely, excessive barking is considered a behavioral problem because it is not necessarily specific to an occasion, which makes it a little more difficult to manage. A quick fix to prevent a dog from barking is to use a dog whistle. It emits higher frequencies than those detected by the human ear (up to 23kHZ) and only heard by dogs because they have a stronger sense of hearing (up to 45kHZ).

The frequency of most dog whistles ranges from 23 kHz to 54 kHz. They should not be used excessively or at excessively high frequencies as the slight discomfort they cause dogs can turn into real pain. Whistle applications for dogs, in general, tend to have a limit of 22 kHz, although some reach 25 kHz or even 32 kHz. However, when it comes to barking a neighbor’s dog, using Bluetooth speakers could be more effective. Here are some of the best Android apps for whistling dogs:
