Up the Wrong Tree?

 It’s Training and Behavior Wednesday!

Q: Why does my dog bark?

A: Dogs bark for various reasons. Just as a parent can distinguish why a baby is crying, you can identify your dog’s bark and thus determine why he/she is barking.  Barking can fall into several categories:

-Alert Barking: Dog barks to let you know he/she has seen or heard something out of the ordinary.

-Defensive Barking: Dog barks to make something he/she is afraid of or does not like go away.

-Attention Barking: Dog wants attention

-Frustration Barking: Dog is confused, frustrated, or stressed.

-Boredom Barking: Dog barks to amuse himself/herself.
