Amherst Pet Blog: Solutions for Barking

It's in a dog's nature to bark. They enjoy barking, and they bark for many reasons. They will bark when they want something, when they are playing, when they are establishing their territory, when they are frightened, when they are annoyed, and when they are just saying "Hi!" Too much barking, however, can drive a dog's family--and their neighbors--crazy!
