If it’s your dog, here are some quick tips to train him not to bark anymore or at least to stop barking when you are present and when you call him:
Firstly, if he doesn’t come after 10 minutes of incessant calls, avoid praising him just because he has finally shut his mouth, thank God … because for that he should have come at the first call !!
Start by training him to come immediately to you at the first call if you want your dog get rid of Out-of-Control barking behavior
Then, put him in situations that usually make him bark like asking a friend to ring your doorbell and as soon as your dog barks, call him and the sooner he comes to you, the more treats and petting he will get, until he understands that he must stop barking and come to you as soon as you call him for the first time.

Quick Dog training to make him stop Barking in the house and Outside on the leash
According to Cesar Milan , You will expose your dog to excessive barking triggers, such as the ringing of the doorbell, the sound of cars, when he hears other dogs barking…etc.
You always over-condition your dog by telling him for example “Shut” as soon as he starts barking when he is exposed to the barking trigger, ask him to sit down too.
You will gradually replace the excessive barking triggered by each of the previous situations by a state of calm, you must each time reward your dog of course.
If your dog barks when he is on a leash, when you walk him for example, start by loosening the leash and do not pull on it, then touch your dog with your hand or foot everywhere to distract his attention from the barking trigger (you can use its favorite toy ) , in the back of the train for example by giving him the command “SIT”.
You can also take your dog in your arms and calm him down if he is of a small breed of course.
PS: If you are using treats to distract your dog’s attention from the barking behavior , make sure first that your dog understands that you are giving treats when he stops barking , not before that !!!
To sum up and make it short & simple , here’s what you can quickly do to keep your dog quiet:
1-Ignore him if he just wants to attract your attention as when you put him in his crate, and as soon as he stops barking and calms down, wait a few minutes and go to praise and reward him without taking him out of his crate or freeing him from his leash … basically, without giving him what he barked for !!!
2-Remove what motivates him to bark if it’s possible like hiding the view of the road, close the window to prevent noise from outside to excite him …
3-Desensitize your dog to what pushes him to bark, by confronting him more and more to this incentive, to this stimulus and by rewarding him every time he refrains from barking and give him the treat just before he barks… don’t give treats after the stimulus has disappeared !
4-Replace the barking by another calmer behavior, to train him to do this, you will have to ask him to sit down just before he barks and you will have to reward him just in time, as soon as he obeys ! so, he will eventually replace the barking in the presence of the stimulus by the new behavior you taught him.
5-Tire your dog by giving him enough time to stimulate him physically and mentally with outings and games in order to remove the need to express himself with the excess barking “this is my favorite method”.
Here’s now in practice, how to quickly and effectively train your dog to stop excessive barking depending on the case and the different reasons that pushed him to do so:
1-How to stop your dog Excessive Alert Barking ?
To stop or control the number of times your dog will bark when it comes to alerting you to something like someone ringing your doorbell, you will prepare some high value training treats, stand next to your dog and use your phone to ask a friend to ring your doorbell.
Be quick and as soon as your dog barks once or even before he does it “according to your wish” you will attract his attention and give him the treat and pet them so that he doesn’t bark.
So, you will gradually replace barking with another behavior, like the one where your dog will just come towards you when he hears someone ringing the doorbell…
2-How to stop excessive territorial dog barking ?
If your dog barks when people or other pets pass by, outside your home, know that this means your dog has extended its territory beyond the limits of your house and backyard, which is not right.
So you are going to delimit its territory by asking a friend that your dog doesn’t know to turn around the limits of your house.
Right now you are going to work with your dog to desensitize it to what is going on outside these limits; here is a quick guide on how to train your dog:
Ask your friend to come by so your dog can see him (and if your dog barks at people, use them as a trigger for this training).
As soon as your dog sees a passer-by or your friend and before he barks, give him treats one after the other until the passer-by or your friend helping you is no longer visible and then you stop giving treats.
After a few repetitions, your dog will no longer bark and will instead look at you and expect you to give him treats, which you should continue to do for the first few times and replace the treats with petting or his best toy afterwards.
You can also use the same training if your dog barks because of outside noise or any other sound or visual trigger.
Here are some other quick tips to get any dog to stop barking
- A dog that exercises and tires, will bark less often and less loudly.
- Divert your dog’s attention from barking triggers.
- Never yell at your dog when he barks, he will only think that you are barking with the pack too.
- A dog may bark just because he smells the danger and wants to warn you, so show him that there is nothing to be afraid of and be calm and relaxed as well.
Why won’t a dog that barks excessively stop barking on its own?
Like chasing after anything that runs away and the behavior of chewing anything and everything; barking is an other self-reinforcing dog behavior “ naturally gratifying and rewarding ” behavior in dogs.
“Your dog doesn’t need treats to make him love to bark !!! , he loves to do it by instinct” ; which means, the more your dog will bark, the more he will want to bark even more.
So, why he won’t stop Barking till he cuts your ears LOL ?, cuz the more your dog will bark, the better he will feel !

Why do dogs bark?
How to Determine What’s Making Your Pooch Woof ?
First of all, disease can be behind a dog that develops a new barking excessive barking behavior just out of the blue .
It is rare but Dementia and cancer are not to be excluded as reasons why a usually calm dog suddenly starts barking for no apparent reason!
A visit to the Vet is highly recommended in this case.
We have to agree !! a dog barks, ok ? and we’re talking about excessive barking and dogs that don’t stop barking anymore !!
Among the causes and reasons that cause dogs to bark excessively is when they get bored, feel fear, anxiety or simply loneliness.
Separation can also cause excessive dog barking when left alone and without its owner, which is very common in puppies and dogs that have just been adopted into a new family.
There are also compulsive barkers, who only do this because they love the sound of their voice !
It’s weird but yet true !
A happy dog can also bark to let people know
On the other hand, a dog that barks while wagging its tail is a dog that is looking for a play partner, this is called a happy bark.
Usually, when the barking is of short time, the dog is just saying Hey !!
A dog can also bark for hours to defend its territory (its own space), the dog will continue to bark as long as the intruder has not gone and left its space.
A dog that barks for no apparent reason and without stopping, is maybe just in pain.
Older dogs can also become impulsive barkers if they become senile.
While it would be enough to encourage your dog to exercise and exert himself in order to tire him out just before you leave him alone and go to work, this will prevent him from barking in your absence…etc.
Is there a relationship between food and excessive barking in dogs?
One of the other reasons for excessive barking in dogs is when they are fed with the wrong or poorly balanced food, which would make the food a great source of intake and extra energy for the dog.
And if this dog doesn’t get enough exercise to release all this energy and overdose of calories, he will use this excess energy to bark and without stopping of course !!!
To stop your dog from barking excessively, start by giving him a balanced food adapted to his needs and especially to the daily exercise he does.
The 10 Common reasons of Dog barking :
When it is not a health problem, there are many other different types (reasons) of dog barking and notice that some dogs are more vocal than others :
1- The most common reason dogs go crazy with barking is when the dog becomes too territorial and protective.
You will recognize this type of barking, when the dog barks deeply and slowly two or three times in a row, then will stop for a moment and listen if the danger is still present and he will bark two or three times … etc
2- Aggressive barking like those related to food guarding.
3- Joyful and excitement related barking such as when a dog goes completely nuts , when seeing its owner in the evening after work , it’s a natural barking by the way !!! .
4- Demand Barking this type of barking is when your dog wants something from you, a treat, an outing, his toy, just a little attention “hey I’m your dog and I’m here!!! ” ….etc
It is in this kind of barking that you should never pay attention to your dog so as not to reinforce the behavior!
Once he has calmed down, give him what he asked for, but not before he remains quiet and calm.
5- Play related barking Growls and Snarls as well , like you often hear in the park.
6- Fear barking; this usually follows a state of fear in the dog, such as just after being frightened by fireworks.
7- The barks of despair and distress, it’s like crying in fact, like for separation anxiety very hard to hear ! an abandoned dog for example or injured …
8- Howling may be a sign of Separation anxiety , Sickness or Depression
9- Whines, Whimpers and Yelps could be signs that a dog want to go to the bathroom , maybe he wants just a treat or some of what you are eating !! , could be just to get your attention but it could also be a sign of pain !!
10- Baying is deep prolonged barking, most often heard when a dog is challenging an intruder
These types of barking are called communication barking, the dog tries to communicate his emotional state or needs, fears or joy… to his owner.
But dogs can also bark ( high pitch tone ) just because he is bored or he is looking for some attention from his owner or even from passers-by ; think about hiring a dog walker or mental stimulation using toys like KONGS…
it could also be a barking to delimit or defend its territory or living space as it could also be an alarm or warning barking, when it is a guard dog for example.
In some cases, and I’m going through one right now as I write this article.
In fact for a long time, probably more than a hour, I hear a dog ( MAX ) barking non-stop, 8/9 short barks, very fast, he breathes for 5 seconds and he emits the other 8 … and it goes on ….
Guess the reason … this dog is barking because there is an empty house in front of him and the echo of his voice amplified by this house quickly, he likes it and it’s also like a pack, it’s as if another dog was barking with him …
That’s why he barks, I don’t see any other reason. I knew his owner and he takes care of him very well but he works at night and the dog stays alone all night long …
Another study has shown that women are more sensitive than men to dog barking and they are the ones who can better distinguish one type of barking from another.
What you should never do if your dog won’t stop barking
The mistake that many dog owners make is to yell at their dog !to shut them up
The dog will then bark even louder, because he believes that you have joined him as the dogs of the same pack would, when one dog starts barking, the others will quickly do the same !!
So under no circumstances should you shout at your dog when he barks.
Bark Collars do not work, especially Chock collars, they only make the dog more depressed and even more aggressive.
The best way to cure this bad habit in your dog is Stop barking training or Obedience training in general, to get rid of all the other bad behaviors.
How to train my dog to stop excessive barking?
There are many ways for your dog to stop excessive barking.
The best way is to train your dog and teach him the command “Quiet”, after you have dealt with the real reasons for the behavior.
So you will do this in two steps:
How can you stop your dog’s excessive barking or help your neighbor to do so?
Step 1: Understand what caused your dog to bark excessively
There’s probably a reason for this, your dog may be unhappy, anxious, you may have just bought him and separated him from his mother and other brothers.
And you didn’t even think to bring at least a piece of cloth or an object from the cage and that to the smell of his mother and brothers, this smell will reassure him when you are not near him … etc…
Your dog may hear a sound that makes him nervous or frightened, the sound of cars may be, machines if you live near a workshop … etc…
A raccoon has just moved into your garage and your dog can’t tolerate it !
So start by finding the reason that caused or triggers this behavior and eliminate the trigger.
Step 2: Train your dog and teach him the “Quiet” command
Here’s how to train your dog or even do your neighbor a favor by training his dog that won’t let you take a nap to stop excessive barking:
1- Prepare a handful of valuable treats for the dog (special training and the ones your dog loves the most).
2- Wait until your dog starts to bark, approach him and tell him once, calmly but firmly ” Quiet !
3- Prepare the treat and as soon as he stops barking even if only to catch his breath, take the opportunity and give him the treat.
4- You will continue to do this until he associates the word (command) “Quiet” with the reward and finally understands that stopping barking is what you want him to do.
Just be patient and never reward him if he doesn’t stop barking for at least a few seconds after you give him the command.
5- Continue this training over several days, and do a reminder every month after that, so that your dog does not bark again without a valid reason.
What factors increase barking in dogs?
A study was able to determine some environmental and dog-related factors that may cause dogs to bark excessively and the results show that the dogs most prone to excessive barking are :
- Younger dogs, the younger a dog is, the more it barks.
- Not coming from a pet shop (professional breeder).
- When there are one or more other dogs in the house or surroundings
- Who have free access to their owner’s house
Do dogs outgrow barking?
As I said at the beginning of this article, dogs love to bark because the more they bark without anyone or anything stopping them, the better and more fulfilled they feel !
Barking is like chewing , dogs love this behavior, it keeps them busy and relaxed in fact.
Your dog will therefore become more and more addicted to barking and don’t expect him to forget this excessive barking when he is older, on the contrary, he will bark even harder, more often and for longer periods of time !
What if the neighbor’s dog won’t stop barking? Use a dog whistle …
Before going to see what your city code says about this kind of nuisance, I recommend that you talk to your neighbor, maybe he will listen to you and train his dog to stop barking for no reason.
If not, I also advise you to try to use the dog whistle ( Link to Amazon ) , which emits ultra sounds that humans can’t hear but which will be really unpleasant for the dog, without hurting him of course.
You will adjust the frequency of this whistle so that it is effective and use it every time the dog starts barking.
After a few days, the dog will normally calm down because he will understand that it is his barking that triggers these ultra sounds that are disturbing him.
What does the U.S. law say about excessive dog barking?
I’m not a lawyer , but here’s what I found : The law in the Article ” 6.08.020 ANIMAL CONTROL REGULATIONS GENERALLY Nuisance-Excessive dog barking ” is clear :
No one has the right to own a dog that barks or howls so continuously or incessantly as to unreasonably (more than 20 consecutive minutes), without it being provoked by a passer-by or another animal ; disturb the peace and tranquility of the neighborhood.
To be excluded from this prohibition, the dogs that do a job as herding in a farm for example…
If the neighbor’s dog barks in such a way and you have proof, such as a video recording for more than 20 minutes, the animal control officer shall investigate after you have contacted him.
The owner of the dog will be made aware of the situation and asked to do whatever is necessary to stop the excessive barking of his dog.
If within 6 months, the dog wont stop excessive barking behavior for at least a second time.
So the animal control officer shall investigate again, and the owner of the dog could be summoned to appear in court .
The fine could be from $100 to $500 ( the same in New Zealand, by the way )
There could even be 6 months in jail as punishment if the barking is repeated, and the owner of the dog has done nothing to stop it…
Can dogs really bark very loudly?
There are dogs that can bark really loud, a Golden Retriever in Australia has reached 113.1 decibels, German Shepherds have very loud barking too, which can easily reach 100 decibels.
Here are also the breeds of dogs that bark more than others
- Basset hounds
- Westie ( West Highland White Terrier )
- German Shepherd
- Miniature pinchers
- the Bichon
- Lhasa Apso
- Siberian huskies and malamutes

You may notice that the smaller the dog is, the longer he will be able to bark without stopping ! It’s a kind of defense system, in order to overcome their small size.
Do Puppies Get Tired of Barking ?
You should know that a puppy, like an adult dog, will not get physically tired from barking, he may just get bored of doing it when he doesn’t attract the attention of anyone or any other dog, but if he wants to, he can continue to bark for hours.
Why do puppies bark ?
A puppy may bark for different reasons, here are the most common:
- When the puppy is hungry or thirsty
- When he wants to do his business
- When he is playing and having a good time (play barking)
- When he wants his toy that he can’t reach
- When he wants to get out of his crest
- If he is sick or in pain
- If he has just been separated from his mother
- If he is afraid at night or a noise has scared him
- When the puppy is bored, he can also bark.
A puppy that suffers from excessive barking is a puppy that has not been trained.
Don’t ask a puppy to stop barking altogether!! but only to bark when it’s right to do so.
A puppy might never get tired of barking, the reasons for barking at this age can be very numerous, separation anxiety, excitement, joy, thirst and hunger, fear, cold, he wants to pee, he wants to get out of his crate, he wants to play, he just likes his way and the fact that he can make noise …etc
At what age do puppies start barking?
Don’t rush !!! your puppy will start grunts and whines as soon as he is two weeks old, and he will bark like a big one around 7 or 8 months old, some breeds of dogs can wait up to two months to start barking properly.
Even if it is cute a puppy that barks, never allow your puppy to bark for no reason and just to get your attention, train the dice his young age to bark only for a valid reason.
Can we help a puppy who barks excessively?
The only way for a puppy to stop barking, because he might never stop, believe me, I experienced it when I was little !
I was almost 10 years old, and I was given a gift of a little dog, “Layka”, a German Shepherd, I really adored her, I installed her in my room, in the corners right in front of my bed and at night, she never slept a wink.
I remember that we had to give her back, because she never stopped barking during the whole week she was with us, especially at night !
It must be said that at that time I didn’t know so much about dogs, if not I would never have let her go, I would have only trained her.
So the only way is to train him and teach him to bark only when there is a valid reason !! make sure before your puppy suffers from any disease that pushes him to bark excessively and above all don’t let the fact that the puppy is cute distract you and dissuade you from teaching him to be quiet.
If his incessant barking doesn’t bother you, you couldn’t say the same to your neighbors or even other members of your family.
Why do some senior dogs bark excessively ?
If a senior dog doesn’t want to stop barking, this could really be a more serious situation, and that dog really has a valid reason for excessive barking, he probably needs help and here’s why an old dog might bark excessively:
This Senior dog may be suffering from Canine Dysfunction Syndrome (Alzheimer’s) and he just forgot to eat, where is his water bowl? what is he doing there? where did he used to relieve himself?…and he is really confused, so he starts barking hoping that someone will help him.
A dog when he gets old, will also become incontinent and may not be able to get up by himself after a long nap , so he could keep barking until he get help.
A senior dog can also be in pain, arthritis for example, an old fracture that hurts when it is cold….and this could cause him to bark like a mad dog if his owner does not understand him and does not treat him….
An old dog will also become visually and hearing-impaired ( Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome ) , which will increase his anxiety, and this will from time to time frustrate him especially at night, because he can no longer control his environment and this will push him to bark as a preventive solution as if to warn any person or other animal who dares to approach …
How to help an old dog that barks all the time?
He just needs more attention and regular visits to the Vet, make sure he has eaten well and finishes his plate, the water level in his bowl has dropped, so your senior dog is hydrating and drinking his water, and never leave an old dog alone for a long time, well, they are no different from us ….
Are there dogs that don’t or almost don’t bark ?
All dogs have to bark, but some breeds are calmer Some breeds bark less or less loudly or for a shorter period of time than other breeds of dogs that remain champions in barking, notably the famous Chihuahuas.
Basenjis, for example, don’t bark too much and even when they do, it’s not really barking like other dogs; it’s more like yodeling.
Akitas and Australian Cattles are dynamic breeds of dogs but very calm if they get their daily dose of exercise.
There are other dogs known to not bark too much for no reason, such as the Berneses, Bonzois, Chow Chow and King Charles Spaniels.
If you want a rather calm dog, also think about breeds like :
- French or English Bulldogs
- Golden Retrievers
- Basset Hounds
- Clumber or Cocker Spaniels
- And the Newfoundlands
But the secret is in training not to bark without a reason.
A dog barking like crazy almost drove me crazy too !
It was a female, a stray dog, she was passing by and since she found something to eat she decided to settle down and go around the neighborhood …
At that time, I was suffering from a Colon disease, and he made me really nervous,I hated to hear noise and everything that made it …
After just a few days of her arrival in the neighborhood, this dog started her concert at night, she never stopped barking at night !!!
Oh my god !!! she was driving me crazy …. I called the dog catcher ( the animal control service ) and I even promised him a bonus if he could catch her, but believe me, he couldn’t !!!
One night, since she wouldn’t let me sleep, I said to myself, I’m going to find out why she barks so much and without stopping !!!
I listened well and guess what I discovered ?
There was another dog, who answered her from another neighborhood a few miles away from my house !! That’s it, she barks and he answers her, they bark in fact in turn and without stop, all night long and she spends the morning asleep on the opposite sidewalk.
I’m not hiding you, she went away on her own, I just woke up one day and she wasn’t there anymore !! thank god !
How to calm down a hyper dog who barks too much ?
Some dogs have energy to spare, this depends on the age of the dog, his breed and his diet but if your dog is hyper active, and barks more during this hyper activity periods, it is also because he is poorly trained!
Here are some tips on how to calm down a hyper active dog:
1- Adapt the duration of your dog’s outings and his games and exercises to his hyper activity by creating a routine and a schedule for your dog. The more your dog is hyper energetic, the longer the outings, the more play time (play fetch and tug of war, make him spend his excess energy). Training is also very recommended in this case.
2-Teach your dog the places and times during which he can show his hyperactivity, outside the house for example and never at night…etc
3-Train your dog to go to his place and calm down (the SIT command or lay down) and reward him every time he obeys. You can use the KONG toy to help him calm down and stop jumping and barking like crazy…

If your neighbor refuses to help his dog to get rid of this bad behavior, you can try a “Dog Barking Deterrent Device” that you will install in your garden in front of the place where the barking dog is (this device sends ultrasounds that only the dog will hear, automatically when he barks, these sounds are unpleasant and they will incite the dog to stop barking).
As a last resort, you can go to the authorities, because it is not the fault of the dog but that of his owner.
Do dogs get sore throats from barking?
No, a dog will never have a sore throat because of barking, for him it’s just talking ! A dog who barks is comparable to a human who talks ! That’s all, so a dog can bark for hours without his throat hurting him.
I’ve seen this before, but it very rarely happens that a dog loses its voice after excessive barking. It was if I remember it well in winter, I think it was because of the humidity, it was very humid, that’s the image I get when I think about it.
But I tell you right now, don’t count on it lol, do something if you want this dog to shut up a little bit, talk about it with his owner, your neighbor I think, don’t forget !! the poor dog has nothing to do with it , not its fault !! Ok !!
Sometimes , exceptionally , a dog that is addicted to barking may damage his voice box or larynx, but I think this happens rarely, maybe a little more in large dogs and during the winter “wet and cold weather”.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it best to ignore a barking dog?
No, you should only ignore your dog’s excessive barking if your dog’s reason for barking is to get your attention!
In this case, let your dog bark until he stops barking, turn to him quickly, give him a treat and reward him for his silence.
How do you get my dog to shut up?
To silence a dog that barks excessively, you must first know what makes him do it.
But generally, to make your dog stop barking, you can use one of these temporary solutions before training him definitively of course and teach him the command “silence”; you can either change his routine, distract him with a toy for example, change his place of residence, tire him … and never reinforce this behavior !!
Are bark collars cruel or a good solution ?
Bark Collars are not a good solution for a dog that barks excessively or without a valid reason, because these collars do not treat the problem of your dog at its source but just treat the symptoms, and on top of that, you will cause your dog pain, hurt him and make him more aggressive….
Same thing for a Muzzle , it will not resolve your dogs barking problem
Can I spray my dog with water to stop barking?
Spraying your dog with water will surely make him stop barking even if it’s not a solution that I recommend.
You can’t do this indoors and especially when it’s cold.
If you use this method, at least try to say the command “silence” just after your dog is watered, he will be able to understand on his own and will be able to stop barking.
When your dog gets used to the water jets and still continues to bark, you can use a mixture of water and white vinegar, but this is not a long-term solution.
Why do dogs bark for no reason?
A dog never barks for no reason, you just haven’t figured it out yet !
A dog who barks excessively has surely a good reason to do so, he is sick, he is bored, he is hungry or thirsty, he only wants to attract attention, he wants to defend his territory, he wants to play, he wants to get out of the house, he is happy, he is unhappy, he suffers from separation anxiety, ….
You see? There must be a reason if your dog doesn’t want to stop barking and it’s up to you to find it and fix it.
Does Dog Silencer Max or other ultrasonic dog bark control work?
Look, the best thing is to find the real reason why your dog won’t stop barking and solve the problem.
I have found a device that I advise you to use only temporarily, this Ultrasonic dog bark control has received a lot of good reviews on Amazon, it has no ON/OFF button which is not a problem, but it seems that those who have tried it are satisfied and their dogs don’t bark excessively like before.
But it must not become a solution that lasts even if it is safe for your dog !
What to spray dogs with to stop barking?
If it’s hot and you’re at the backyard or on the patio with your dog who won’t stop barking, you can turn on the faucet and water it with a hose if you have one.
But if you’re in the house, you can use simple but clean Spay Bottle, or your kids water gun… they can both distract your dog and make him forget his barking for a while of course.
You can use The Pet Corrector Spray as well
Can A Landlord Make You Get Rid Of Your Dog?
If you have not signed a No-pet clause, you should know that the landlord cannot force you to get rid of your dog because of excessive barking.
Each state has its own laws of course, so be sure to check your rights with your dog if the landlord threatens to evict you because of barking.
But be aware that it is best to train your dog not to bark for no reason to avoid conflict.
On the other hand, put yourself in the place of your neighbors, there is what is called nuisance dog barking, and hearing a dog barking non-stop, especially at night and when you have a baby for example who wakes up easily …. is not really acceptable from a neighbor !
Why Is My Dog Barking At The Wall?
Don’t worry if you see your dog facing a wall and barking, it’s certainly not a ghost!!!
On the other hand, it could be a cognitive dysfunction, especially if it’s a senior dog, so you should take him to see his veterinarian.
If not, he could bark on this wall because he hears things behind it, it happens with the outside walls, which give directly to the Backyard, a raccoon or a squirrel is surely behind this wall !!!
Is there a color that could calm a dog that barks excessively?
There are of course the favorite colors of dogs, the ones that they easily distinguish , of course yellow and blue and their shades
It also turns out that the color purple is known to calm dogs, and maybe painting the dog’s cottage with this color or installing a LED of this color could have a relaxing and calming effect on the dog and he may stop barking for no apparent reason.
Why does my dog bark consistently when other dogs are barking?
This is an innate behavior in wolves and dogs too, when dogs lived in packs, as wild dogs do in Africa, they bark all together to make the pack look big and powerful and it is a message sent to other packs in the vicinity so that they stay away from their hunting territory.
Why has our dog started barking at me?
If your dog comes into your room and barks especially at night when he has never done this before, know that there is a reason for this.
He may have had an urge to go outside to pee because of a sudden illness or discomfort (diarrhea for example)
Maybe he had a dream!
He heard a noise or felt something, a danger and he wants to alert you, a rodent, a thief, a mountain lion, a bear, a coyote ….
He slept too much during the day and he just wants your attention and play because he can’t sleep
He may be thirsty, especially if it is hot and you forgot to fill his water bottle…
You should not praise him in these cases, otherwise it will become a bad habit
Why does my dog bark excessively when sees another dog?
In this case, the barking may be due to what is called “leash reactivity”, the barking dog is just sending a signal to the other dog to warn him not to approach it because he doesn’t know its intentions.
This is usually due to poor socialization of the dog who sees any other dog as a potential threat to him or his owner.
Just relax the leash and look relaxed and calm so that the dog will also lower his guard and know that there is no danger and he will stop barking.
This barking is sometimes due to the enthusiasm of the dog, especially young dogs when they meet older dogs.
Let’s Wrap all this Up !!
It’s normal for a dog to bark from time to time, for valid reasons, like when there is an intruder in your garden, your baby has come a little too close to the fireplace …etc.
But when the barking is excessive, even sickly, do not blame the dog because he is only asking for your help.
Try to understand why your dog barks non-stop, take him to see his Vet , and if it’s just a behavioral problem, train your dog to stop barking for no reason, that’s all
