Facts about Dog Barking

Bookmark and Share
By Heather Andrews

Dogs barking can be a nuisance to your neighbors. Leaving dogs outside for long periods of time, especially at night, and poor dog training increases the chance that a dog will continuously bark. Dog barking can be the cause of issues between neighbors and can lead to serious outcomes. Here are some facts about dog barking:

  1. The search term “stop barking” in Google searches is at an all time high in 2012 since at least 2005. This could indicate more dogs are barking and disturbing neighbors or more owners are taking control of their barking dog and researching ways to train their dog to stop barking.
  2. Stop barking search trends
  3. Dogs living in groups are more likely to bark than individual dogs living on their own.

  4. The breeds that bark the most are Terriers and German Shepherd.

  5. The breed that barks the least is the Basenji. This breed of dog doesn’t have a bark at all, but more like a yodel/singing sound.

  6. Several counties and/or cities in the US have anti-barking laws or allow for barking dogs to fall under noise ordinances.

  7. Lawsuits over a barking dog can happen. If your neighbors won’t control their barking dog, you can sue them in small claims court. If you have a barking dog, it could cost you a lot of money. There are reports of lawsuits claiming tens of thousands in damages for the nuisance of a barking dog.

  8. A large dog with a loud bark can cause damage to human hearing.

Training a dog to stop barking is the best solution to avoid dog barking problems. Understand what is causing the dog to bark in the first place and then work with the dog to train against a barking reaction to the trigger. Use an anti-bark collar or ultrasonic bark device to alert your dog to its bad behavior and train the dog to stop. Do not reward a dog with treats after they stop barking as they are likely to not understand that the reward is for not barking. If it is your neighbor’s dog that won’t stop barking, there are ultrasonic anti-barking devices that can train dogs to stop barking from up to 50 ft away.
