When Dogs Bark and Bark and Bark

Dogs who bark excessively cause more problems among neighbors than just about any other single neighborhood issue. A dog barking on and on can disrupt sleep, wake babies, cause other dogs to bark, and create innumerable other headaches. This is very sad because when a dog is barking continually, it is a sign that there is something wrong; either the dog is alone too much, is ignored, or is not getting enough training or exercise.

Barking dogs usually fall under city or county noise ordinances, although some localities have specific barking-dog laws enforced by the animal control department. Dog owners are normally cited once or twice, with fines escalating each time. If the problem isn't resolved, more drastic steps can be taken. In some cities, the dog will be confiscated, while in others, the owner may be arrested. The owner of a barking dog should contact a professional trainer or behaviorist for help in solving the problem.
