Barking is a way your dog communicates. It can be a pleasurable response to your arrival home or a fearful response to an intruder on your property. Dogs bark for different reasons. If your dog barks too often, you must get to the root of the problem before you can change the behavior.
Reasons Why Dogs Bark
Lonely and bored. Dogs that are left alone for too long, whether they are in the house or outside can become unhappy.
Anxious. Some dogs bark at anything or anyone until they are taught differently.
Attention. Dogs will bark to get your attention, telling you they want something.
Warn about intruders or unsafe. Some dogs bark as an alarm.
Suffer from separation anxiety. Dogs with separation anxiety can bark constantly when left alone.
Excited. Dogs often bark as a greeting or sign they want to play.
To call the pack back. Dogs communicate with each other using body language and vocal sounds.
Hunger. Dogs often let you know when it’s chow time!

“Lori is fantastic. I spent a ton of time researching dog training and where to go and who to use. Like everyone else, the internet seems to be our primary tool, but ultimately I decided to dig deeper and asked 3 different Vet offices about dog trainers. One of the things that impressed me about Bark Busters was the only company to offer a lifetime guarantee of support. I know as a business owner you can’t afford to offer it if it’s going to be used a lot. So I figured they most be pretty good with results. I also really like the fact that you weren’t in a class or you drop your dog for a couple of weeks and then try to work with whatever improvements a trainer fostered. With Lori she comes right to your house. I laugh thinking of that first visit. Sunny was jumping all over Lori, pawing, knocking things over and running around crazy style. Lori first went through training my wife and I on the system. It was kind of hard to believe it would work. Then she sprang into action. Instant success. I mean day one. Sunny no longer barks at us when we eat, she waits at the door for a guest to enter without jumping, she’s walking on a leash. She now goes to her bed and will leave an object when told instead of chewing on it. We just completed our 2nd follow up visit which is really a tune up for the owners as Lori had to reinforce a few things we forgot or simply weren’t practicing after the first visit. I feel great about our 8 month shelter puppy and highly recommend Lori. She’s also just a pleasant person on top of a great trainer. Now if I can get her to train my 7 year old son we’ll really be in business!” Brian S
