Dog Barking 

Finding a solution to your dog’s barking behavior is something almost every dog owner has had to struggle with at some point. Dogs bark for many reasons and it can be hard to quiet them, because they are usually trying to tell you something. Whether they would like something to eat, have seen someone lurking outside your home or are simply talking back to you after you have told them not to do something, each bark has a purpose. Finding the training solution can be a challenge, because frequency and severity of barking behavior varies from dog to dog.

When is Training Essential?
If your dog doesn’t bark very often, your dog barking solutions will be very different from someone that has a chronic barker. Chronic barking usually occurs people work during the day and leave their dog in the house until they get home. In that type of situation, a dog will usually bark throughout the day from boredom, maybe loneliness, hunger and so on. Then, when the owner gets home, the dog becomes very excited and will most likely begin barking even more. If your dog is barking constantly and is disrupting the lives of others, finding solutions becomes essential.  Often times a quick remedy would be to give the dog a treat or chew, like greenies.  This will keep him occupied for a while, and over time, he will seek out his treats for comfort!
