Behavioural problems: barking Owner Factsheet

Dogs bark to communicate their emotions. Different barks can mean different things and variations in bark sounds are also caused by individual characteristics. A Great Dane's bark sounds somewhat different to that of a Chihuahua even when they mean the same thing. All dogs bark at sometime but if your dog is a persistent barker you should seek some professional assistance before it becomes a nuisance to other people.
