Responsible dog ownership includes ensuring your dog is not a nuisance to others. Barking is a natural dog behavior and most people want their dogs to bark to alert them to potential danger. However, allowing your dog to bark excessively is permitting a public nusiance to occur. Many barking dogs do so out of boredom, loneliness, and frustration. Changing a canine's living conditions, finding a companion, or devising other environmental changes can address this problem.
