Let's Bark About it!!!
Show of Paw, who has or has had a dog that barks??
Dogs bark for many reasons, it is a form of communication. What is your dog saying to you??
Im scared - Fear
Come play - Excitement
Listen to me - Frustration
Hello! Look at me - Attention
There is no one size fits all when it comes to training dogs, im sure some of you out there had a trainer tell them there is. A training plan to curb attention barking will not work to treat barking that occurs when your dog is excited. Barking is a symptom of an online issue, when we identify and address the cause of barking we then can work on stoping it.
It has been scientifically proven that dogs do feel emotions such as fear. A lot of the time we see emotions of anger (even in people) when fear is present. Those of you who have a dog that "wants to attack and hurt" or is "extremely aggressive and mad" chances are they are so fearful, that biting, barking, growling is what they think they need to do in order to be safe. It is rare, but not unheard of, for a dog to be born a vicious killing machine.
Do you need help identifying and treating your dogs barking habit ?
