Reasons why dogs bark - Shoalhaven City Council

Reasons why dogs bark

Dogs bark for many reasons, for example:
  • chained to a fixed point without enough room to move 
  • kept in a space which is too small
  • provoked, deliberately or unintentionally by people, other animals or birds
  • under exercised or lacking training
  • hungry, sick, thirsty, lonely, on the wrong diet or generally neglected

How can I stop my dog from barking?

Try the following:
  • Remove direct line of sight between the dog and children or animals which may provoke barking.
  • Take the dog to a recognised animal trainer for specialised training to discourage bad habits.
  • Keep the dog in the house or garage at night.
  • Obtain advice on the correct breed of dog for the home where it is kept.
