Barking is a common issue experienced by most owners. There are reasons why your dog may be barking; it may be in pain or feeling unwell, or it may be due to boredom or anxiety. Your dog may also be very excitable before going for a walk, playing with a new toy or when a visitor comes by. If you can find the cause of the barking, you can address solving the problem. Some good ways of managing your dog’s behaviour is by not giving your dog attention when misbehaving; rather reward your dog when being quiet to reinforce that behaviour. But it is important to explore several reasons why the barking may continue.
