How do I stop my dog barking at other dogs?
Should I let my dog bark it out at other dogs? Even if the dog was originally fearful or timid around other canines, once she learns that barking is the way to ward off the other dog, her behavior may become more offensively reactive and barky.
Why does my dog bark at some dogs but not others? Dogs are always in alert mode when someone new arrives on the scene. However, they sometimes immediately start to growl or bark at some people, but not others. This momentary temper could indicate aggression, a defensive attitude, or simply some form of anxiety.
What are dogs saying when they bark at each other? Dogs will also bark at other dogs outside their door to tell them that this is their territory. It’s their way of saying, “I live here and I’m protecting my home.”
