Teaching “quiet” command

Here`s another great article:

I just adopted a 2 year old hound mix so needless to say she can be LOUD.

She’s the sweetest thing but super territorial. She doesn’t really bark for reasons other than hearing noises outside the apartment, people/dogs getting too close on walks and for some reason when she sees/hears kids playing outside she completely loses it. She also barks at my roomba but I think she views the roomba as a threat since it’s moving, (we’ve been doing better with that when I’m calming her). She also barks when she doesn’t know where I am but that’s an anxiety thing.

I’d like to teach her the quiet command if possible. I’m fine with her barking once or twice as an alert but since I live in an apartment, I’m worried her barking for minutes at a time until the “threat” stops will cause complaints especially at night or early in the morning.

I’m trying to figure out how to form controlled training sessions around this without it being a “surprise” to me. I’ve tried playing YouTube videos of dogs barking and children playing to get her to bark so I can work on teaching the command but when it’s not a real situation she doesn’t seem to be bothered by it.

I guess I can use the roomba as a training session but I was wondering if there were other ways too?

Any advice?!
