What to do if your dog barks?

April 13, 2012

Dogs are a pleasure to have for an abundance of different reasons. They are considered a man’s best friend and for really good reasons. Dogs are naturally loyal to their owner and family because they are instinctively pack creatures. Their brain is tuned to love and protect their family. That is why a pet dog is so good to have because they will always be there for you when you need them. If you are feeling like your sweaty armpits, your dog will come up to and try and make you feel better. If you are happy they will be happy as well. Unlike humans that can talk, dogs only have the ability to howl and bark. Sometimes dogs bark a little too much and it can become more of an annoyance than anything else. The following will go over how to handle the situation if your dog barks.

There are a few different reasons why a dog will bark excessively. The main reason a dog barks a whole lot is because they feel really bored. When dogs have nothing to do and are not tired, many of them have the tendency to just bark and bark until they fall asleep. Another reason why a dog barks a super lot is because they have gotten the results they have wanted from their barking. Say for instance, they were barking their heads off because they wanted to come into the house. Eventually you may have let them in the house in order to stop the barking chaos, your dog thinks that the barking worked to get the results it wanted and boom, they bark whenever they want something. In other barking cases, a lack of attention and love is the cause behind the barking. It is important to know why your dog is barking so much in order to know how to tackle the problem.

The main thing that one can do when they are facing a problem like excessive barking is to give your dog more love and attention. Go for more walks and play more fetch in order to tire the dog out so they don’t bark so much. Try and exercise the dog more so that they are more active and happy and won’t feel the need to bark to get attention. The more attention and love you show your dog, the less likely they will have a barking problem later.
