I know a dog is a good pet but one should expect a dog to never bark. That’s as unreasonable as expecting a child to never talk.
But some dogs bark excessively. If that’s a problem in your home, the first step is figuring out what causes your dog to bark too much. Once you know why he is barking, you can start to treat his barking problem. Also barking is one type of vocal communication that dogs use, and it can mean different things depending on the situation.
