Barking is inevitably part of having a dog. It’s normal behavior in which dogs try to communicate with us and other animals.
And while it is unrealistic to expect your dog to be quiet at all times, excessive barking is a big problem.
If you find that the frequency or duration of your dog’s barking has become unreasonable, the cause of the barking will have to be identified and addressed for the barking to stop.
Typically, if a stimulus is strong enough to make your dog bark a little, it is powerful enough to make him bark a lot.
