Those forms of barking are hardly ever a nuisance and don’t last for very long. That's the reason why nuisance barking generally has the same cause and the same solution. When a dog barks too much, it’s almost always telling you that he's bored and is searching for stimulation or a challenge.

The barking is the sole method the dog has to inform you something is wrong. This eBook will try to help you, dog owners, to figure out why your dog is barking excessively and what you can do to handle the situation.< Less
