Barking Prevention at the Puppy Stage

A young pup that barks at people or noises is a good indication that you have a budding nuisance barker. This is a nervous pup that worries about everything. A well-adjusted pup will not usually start barking until somewhere between 8 to 12 months of age.

If you have a pup that is starting to bark at everything that moves, discipline him by growling “BAD” at the precise moment he starts. Praise him as soon as he responds.

Clapping your hands or throwing an object onto the ground near the pup, such as a can of pebbles, (careful you don't hit the pup) and at the same time growling your correction word (BAD) should help stop any premature barking.
A puppy that persists even after your correction could need some socializing.
