    ...one way to get a dog to stop barking is to put some peanut butter on your finger and hold it up for the barking dog to sniff.

    Sniff-sniff!  Mmmmm!  Slurp-slurp!

    And then the peanut butter gets on the roof of doggie's mouth, who then gets so distracted licking it off, that s/he stops barking and forgets what s/he was barking about.  

    Don't do it too often, it can become "reinforcement."  As in, "Oh boy, if I woof up a storm, that human over there will give me a treat!"
