How to Stop Dog Barking When I Eat Eggs

My Dog Barks When I Eat Eggs

To stop dog barking when you eat eggs:

  1. Teach your dog the “quiet” command to use whenever they bark when you eat eggs or at any other time you need them to pay attention and become silent.
  2. To accomplish that, take your dog somewhere you know they’ll want to bark like the park with lots of small treats.
  3. When your dog starts barking, say “quiet” in a positive, calm voice. If they respond and get silent while also giving you their full focus immediately reward them with praise and a treat.
  4. But if your dog keeps barking or soon starts back up, then hide a treat in your fist.
  5. Put your fist right by your dog’s nose. They’ll still be able to detect the scent even inside of your fist and should stop barking to sniff it.
  6. Once they’ve quit barking and are paying you their complete attention, again say “quiet,” and then open your hand to reward them with a treat and praise.
  7. If they keep being silent and are paying you their complete attention, keep rewarding them with praise and treats.
  8. But if they again begin barking or are not giving you their attention, repeat the steps of placing a treat inside of your fist, placing it near their nose, and waiting until they quit their barking and focus on you.
  9. Always be sure to wait until they’ve quit their barking and are giving you all their focus, and then say “quiet” before you reward them with any treats or praise.
  10. This forms a positive connection for your dog with the “quiet” command, and with staying silent and giving you their focus.
  11. With repetition, consistency, and patience, you will be able to get them to respond with only the “quiet” command, and it won’t be necessary anymore to place your hand next to their mouth.
  12. When your dog is doing well with only the command, then you should start increasing the amount of time you wait before you reward them.
  13. Begin by waiting for 2 seconds, then as they do well increase that to about 5 seconds, and so on.
  14. you’ll no longer need to reward your dog with praise and food, and they will be quiet and pay attention to you just by you giving the command.

This will get your dog to stop barking when you eat eggs, but you’ll still need to do something about their misbehavior which is rooted in their underlying issue with dominance. Not doing anything will just lead to your dog continuing to think that they are in charge and that they make the decisions, and things will only get worse for the both of you.

They’re currently displaying this through demand barking. This is when your dog has learned that if they just bark long enough, you’ll get annoyed and give them whatever they want. But while it may get you the silence you’re after, it also serves to reinforce your dog’s beliefs that they are the dominant one in your household.

To properly address how to handle this way of thinking from your dog, we must first talk about what makes them function deep down. I’m sure you’ve heard before that dogs are pack animals, and that in every pack there is a pack leader.

But when your dog barks when you eat eggs, they are definitively telling you that they don’t respect you in this leadership role.

If they did, they wouldn’t bark when you’re eating eggs and then refuse to quit until you give in. They wouldn’t engage in any other types of dominance-related misbehavior. And they would immediately obey your commands at all times, and they would do so happily.

Make it clear to your dog that you are not just their pack leader, but a capable one worthy of respect, and you’ll make all of these terrific transformations a reality.

You’ll be better off for obvious reasons. But your dog will be too because they’ll no longer have to deal with all of the worry and confusion that their dominance problems are currently burdening their little shoulders with every moment of every day.

That sounds terrific, wouldn’t you agree?

Why Does My Dog Bark When I Eat Eggs?

Your dog barks when you eat eggs because they want some of what you’re having too. When they do this and then refuse to quit until you’ve given them some, it is known as demand barking. You’ll see this frequently with dogs who feel dominant over their owners.

Basically, your dog has learned that if they’re just annoying enough, you’ll get sick of it and will give them whatever they’re after. But this has taught your dog that it works (meaning they’ll continue to do it) and also confirmed their beliefs of being in charge.

And when you think about it, it actually makes sense that your dog would come to that conclusion. After all, they gave you an order (through barking), and then you complied (by giving them eggs or other things). With each passing day that this continues to happen and you continue to relent, their dominant beliefs become even stronger in their mind.

That’s why you need to begin working to correct your dog’s disobedience immediately. Each day that you wait only makes it harder on you in the future, and your life in the meantime will continue to be filled with frustration, misbehavior, and incessant barking.

Your dog will be barking when you eat bacon, barking when you eat hamburgers, barking when you eat sausage, and barking when you eat steak. They’ll bark for other foods and objects also, and in many cases, they might even be doing so just to assert themselves — not because they actually want what you have.

You can correct all of this much faster than it took to get to this point, thankfully. To learn how to stop your dog barking when you eat eggs (or anything else) while also finding out how to correct their dominant beliefs and demand barking by getting to the root of the issue, go back to the first section now.

Can Dogs Eat Eggs?

Dogs can eat eggs. They’re a great source of healthy nutrients like protein and vitamins for them. Just make sure to only let your dog have eggs in moderation — one whole egg per day is plenty (always cooked, never raw), and make sure to forego any salt, pepper, or spices.

Though it’s not common, some dogs can have problems like vomiting or diarrhea after eating eggs. If your dog has never eaten eggs before, test things out by only giving them a very small amount and keeping an eye on them before upping things to a whole egg at a time.

Can Dogs Eat Scrambled Eggs Every Day?

Dogs can eat scrambled eggs every day. Regardless of the method you use to cook the eggs, you should limit your dog to just one whole egg per day. Make their egg especially for them so that you can avoid the use of any salt, spices, or pepper. These can be bad for your dog’s long-term health or possibly cause an upset stomach.

I’m sure you’re looking forward to eating your eggs without being bothered, so I’ll let you get started on things now. Good luck, and thank you for checking out our article “My Dog Barks When I Eat Eggs.”
