Labradors are notorious for barking. You do not want to stop your dog’s barking completely. After all, this is how he communicates. However, after he warns you of the killer squirrel invading the yard he should not continue to go on-and-on about it. You need to identify why he is barking. If the cause is territorial, he needs to know you are the leader, and he can relax. If he is barking because he is excited to see you when you get home, wait until he calms down and stops barking to acknowledge him. Otherwise, he does not know he is doing something wrong. Determining the cause is the first step.
