When people think about dogs, one of the first ideas that come to mind is the act of them barking. Just about all dogs bark – there is actually one that doesn’t, an ancient hound breed called the Basenji – and it’s one of the things that can drive people craziest about them.

Some dogs can also bark quite a lot. Often their barking has a perfectly good reason, but sometimes it can get excessive or become nothing more than a hobby for your dog. This is where barking becomes something of a behavior problem and steps need to be taken to minimize it as much as possible.
Understand that you never want to completely stop dog barking – it is a completely natural behavior for dogs, just like talking is a natural behavior for humans. No doubt there are people you would like to stop talking occasionally as well – fortunately, training your dog to be quiet is actually a lot easier to achieve.
