A persistent bark is one of the most common issues that owners encounter with their four legged friends.
Unfortunately, no one has yet mastered the art of canine-human communication and so interpreting dog barking remains a challenge for both parties.
Dogs may bark for a variety of reasons and it is one of the ways that they attempt to communicate with you. Before considering Jordan Dog Training’s professional behavioural services for a barking dog, first please check your dog’s essential needs are met. Consider these common causes:
- Is your dog hungry or thirsty?
- Is our dog in need of exercise?
- Is he sick or injured?
- Is he bored or seeking attention?
However, when the barking becomes excessive, this can create a public nuisance subject to council intervention. If you cannot pinpoint the reason why your dog is barking, in-home dog training services can help you solve your problems quickly and effectively, with gentle, but firm, methods.
When your dog’s excessive barking also becomes a problem for your neighbours – whether they complain directly to you or file an official complaint, it is always a good idea to let them know you are trying to solve the problem.
Dogs barking at each other is a natural phenomenon and so the question is not how to stop dogs barking, but to learn effective bark control methods. Using physical punishment is not recommended – please avoid potentially harmful solutions such as shock collars.
