Shelter diversion through pet retention and rehoming.
Barking is an important method of communication for dogs but this can be an issue if the barking is persistent or excessive. Below are some ideas to address this common issue.
What to Do
Identify when, where, and why the dog is barking. If you know what triggers the barking, you can come up with a plan to reduce or prevent it. For example, if your dog is barking at other dogs passing by the front window, you can block her access to the window or apply window film that will obscure her view.
