What To Know About Dog Barking Problems

Barking is normal and usual for dogs. You can’t do anything to stop it. However, this is not a satisfactory explanation for furious neighbors. Fortunately, there are some things that you can do to turn down your dog’s loud barking. First, you have to know the real cause of its excessive barking. Some dog owners think that dogs are only showing aggressiveness or rebellion whenever they bark. However, this is not really the case. Dog barking problems arise because of a lot of reasons.

One of these is communication. There are times when a dog barks because it wants other dogs to know its identity and where its location is. That is why it communicates with them through barking. Sometimes, it also wants to alert its owners about someone or something. So, it growls and barks. And this is what you call alert or territorial barking.

Then, dog barking problems may also be due to lack of attention. A lot of dogs bark because they want their owners to notice and play with them. Sometimes, they even want other people such as neighbors, delivery persons, mail carriers and children to notice them. This is because more often than not, dog owners tend to be very busy with their work that is why they do not have enough time to spend with their pets.

Another possible cause of dog barking problems are boredom, anxiety, stress, and asking for basic needs. These causes may be closely identified with lack of attention because the dog also barks to get noticed and be showered with affection. Well, when a dog gets separated from its owner or if it is frequently left alone in the house, it experiences anxiety and longing. It also becomes stressed or bored.

However, it may also be undergoing pain or sickness that is why it is stressed. So, the best thing that you can do in these kinds of situation is to bring your dog to a licensed veterinarian for a check-up. It may need medication or theraphy.

On the other hand, your dog may be barking loudly because it is its way of asking for basic needs. So, if you do not give its needs immediately, this could result in dog barking problems. You must realize that your dog needs to be fed at specific hours of the day, and it also needs to be walked regularly. It also needs to play and be hugged. And it also needs to be cleaned. In addition, your dog needs to be pampered once in a while. Then again, your dog may only be excited to play that is why it barks. In this case, you must play with it and give it a treat.

Nonetheless, you must also teach your dog how to behave. You must train it to be quiet by using tried and tested methods. You can consult a veterinarian or a dog trainer, but you can also buy books and manuals about dog training. In any case, you must train it with non-harmful aids. The right training generally solves most of the dog barking problems.

Do You Need A Dog Crate? Read This First

Dogs, like people, enjoy having a space they can call their own. This is possible for them with a dog crate and kennels. It is more common to use a pet crate when your dog is inside the house and to use kennels when your dog is outdoors. If your dog is going to stay outside for long periods of time, and especially if you do not have a fenced in yard, you will need a dog kennel to keep your dog safe and comfortable.

Q&A: My dog has bad flatulence help?

Question by Jeremy: My dog has bad flatulence help?
My dog (Luda) is a part-lab/part-greyhound. He has a few “emotional problems” and seperation anxiety. (A hassle I know but its my brothers dog,and he doesn’t want him,mom feels bad for him,etc)
Long story short he doesn’t eat much,so im wondering how is he having bad gas? It smells pretty awful like 10,000 dead skunks,and it comes without any sound or warning.

Despite how funny you may think it is,I feel like he has a health disorder. Any advice or solutions? Please be mature about this.
Dry food. and he is only about 2 years old.

Best answer:

Answer by Semolina
You do need to take a look at the quality of the food he gets.

Lamb shanks for instance have always had a flatulant effect on my dogs.

First of all, however, I would consult a vet and have the dog examined to make sure there is no underlying health problem.

Older dogs do get flatulant, and provided there is nothing wrong with him healthwise, a special diet and charcoal will help.

Day 318: Tablesawing

Puppy nutrition?

Question by marina: Puppy nutrition?
Do large breed puppies need special food?
I read large breed puppies shouldn’t have a high energy diet because it messes with their growth. Is this true?

I have a 9 wk old Great Pyrenees Puppy and I am planning on switching her to a food of higher quality. I am trying to decide between “Solid Gold: Wolf Cub (Large Breed Puppy Food)” and “Natural Balance Ultra Premium”, which says its for all breeds and life stages. Which do you think would be better for my dog? and why? Would you recommend something else?

Solid Gold Wolf Cub:
Protein, Min 26%
Fat, Min 12%
Fiber, Max 4%
Moisture, Max 10%
Calcium, Max 1.5%
Phosphorus, Max 1.2%

Natural Balance Ultra Premium:
Crude Protein 23.0% minimum
Crude Fat 13.0% minimum
Crude Fiber 3.0% maximum
Moisture 10.0% maximum
Omega 3 Fatty Acids 0.5% minimum
Omega 6 Fatty Acids 3.0% minimum
-Sirena D- Thank you for the suggestion, however I feel pretty iffy about feeding my dog a food with “animal fat” (what animal is it from exactly?) and corn as a first ingredient.
-Sillygoose- Thank you. Especially for the tip about the shots. I had no idea that that the distemper vaccine could do that. I will talk to my vet about holding it off.

Nutro Natural Choice Lamb and Rice sounds pretty good. I like the fact that I could find it at petsmart which is very convenient for me.
-erickal- I like Natural Balance brand too. I used to feed Natural Balance cat food to my cat who had severe food allergies and what it did for her was amazing. I just want to be sure its good for my pup since she will grow to be very big.

Best answer:

Answer by Sirena Doren
To be very honest with you, I would suggest Hill’s Science Diet, Large Breed formula (you should be able to find it for puppies). It’s the best balanced diet you can put your puppy on and I garantee you’re going to be satisfied as your dog grows. The biggest thing you’ll notice is their coat; it’s going to be shiny and smooth and soft, it won’t get waxy and dull the way a lot of dogs get as they get older. One tip for feeding, even with Science Diet, always feed about 1/4-1/8 UNDER the recommended feeding amount for your dog’s size. They always tell you to feed more because they want you to run out of food faster and buy more. I know it’s terrible but it’s the truth.
