When we started having issues with our heeler barking after he started going to a doggie daycare a few days a week, the trainer we spoke to gave us the advice to physically put ourselves between our dog and what he was barking at. By doing so, you are breaking his eye contact with what he/she is barking at and giving yourself the chance to correct the behavior at the same time. So then you would issue your correction that the dog should know means "no" while you have his attention. And continue doing so until he learns. Another option we were given was a spray collar than automatically deployed when he barked. That only worked for a couple of weeks. Then he stopped caring and kept barking. I suggest the former idea.
I have an Australian Red Heeler, he was a rescue at 5 weeks. We babied him because he was so small. He was aggressive from a small puppy. He is 2 years old now, he has been fixed and is still super aggressive. He broke my heel last August. I had to run him 3 miles in the woods 3 times a day. He is super energetic and needs lots of exercise. He is very sweet at home and snuggles. What do I do to cut the aggressive behavior?
