Puppy Barking

Puppies will start to bark – it’s a natural thing. They have to find their voice sooner or later. Most of the time, the barking will decrease as they’re used to the sound. They’re just experimenting, the same way a human baby talks gibberish when they first figure out they can make sounds with their mouth.

Senile Dog Barking

Likewise, this is a natural thing. If your dog is barking because her mind is starting to go, there’s not much training can do to help. You may be able to get medicine from the vet to help sedate your dog and decrease the barking. Visit your vet and discuss your options.

Communication Barking

Sometimes barking is simply a way to communicate between dogs. It can also be a way for the dog to try to communicate information to you – that she is in pain, for example.

In most cases this type of barking is not excessive and can be controlled with training. Usually dogs won’t bark a lot when they’re comfortable with each other – so if you’re introducing two new dogs to each other, stopping the barking is simply a matter of socializing them until they’re used to each other’s presence.
