Why do Dogs Bark?

When our ancestors first domesticated dogs they valued the barking ability of dogs as a built in alert system; even today many people have dogs in the home to alert them in case of intruders. When comparing modern breeds for barking tendencies, those breeds bred to be watch or guardian dogs are the heaviest barkers.
There are many additional reasons why dogs bark; they bark to get attention, they bark to alert, they bark to greet you when you come home from work, they bark to say “hi” to Bowser down the street, and then there are dogs that simply seem to enjoy talking. There are about as many reasons for dogs to bark as there are dogs. There are dogs that suffer from obsessive or pathological behaviors that lead to incessant, extremely problematic barking.

Before Training Can Begin

OK, We know that Sasha Barks at External Stimuli- What Now?
Often a little common sense can take care of barking problems causes by external stimuli. Say Sasha barks every time someone knocks on the door, but not when they use the door bell.

But what if Sasha Barks because she wants Attention?

Tip: Did you know that your dog may be talking back to you? If you give your dog a command and he barks at you right after the command, he is talking back! This is a sure sign he views himself the Alpha.
