Stop Dog Barks
Almost nothing is more exasperating than listening to nonstop dog barkincessantly for hours. Dogs communicate with each other and us through barking but if your dog is barking too much it is a symptom of a much bigger problem. First the dog's mental, emotional and physical needs must be met and then peace and quiet can again be found.
Nonstop barking is one of the most common complaints of neighbors and dog owners alike. Asare pack animals by nature with strong bonds to family members it is unnatural for them to be alone for long periods of time. So they bark as a way of releasing their frustration and angst. Barking is self-reinforcing and therefore must be dealt with without delay.
The three categories ofthat are problem barkers are as follows:
- The dog that is barking because he is all alone and desiring companionship.
- The dog that barks at people passing by, noises or visitors.
- The dog that barks because he wants your attention.
Whatever category your dog falls into his problem most likely stems from a lack of some basic need. Or he is being reinforced to respond incorrectly to some situation or situations.
