Be a leader
Dogs are social, pack-oriented animals who respond best to a leader figure whether dog or human. The best pack leaders are the ones who are the most consistent. Dogs react to consistency because they know they can trust the consistent leader.

The good leader doesn’t praise, and, therefore, encourage the response, by stroking the dog, telling him it’s OK, you’re a good boy, etc., while the dog is acting out.
