We have all been annoyed at some point by the dog that just won’t quit barking. Whether a dog is alone or even with his owner, out in public or at home, during the day or in the middle of the night, continual barking is a frustrating experience. Barking can serve a purpose such as alerting you to something out of the ordinary or as a defense response. But dogs may also bark to get attention, out of frustration or even just to entertain themselves. Understanding when and why your dog is barking is the first step to solving this problem.
