Barking can be useful when it acts as deterrent to protect property or when dogs need to warn us or ask to go out. However, excessive barking can increase the stress levels in a household or can lead to the neighbours complaining. No one wants that. The good news is that noisy dogs can be persuaded to be quiet again, even if, at present, the slightest thing sets them off and their habit is well established.
