Barking dog problem? Blame the owner, not the dog!

A recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald reignites the constant battle between neighbours and "talking" pets.

Education Team member and Pet Behavioural Trainer, Tanya Dominguez states that barking is not associated with any particular breeds of dogs. Within every breed, there’s the good and the bad. Dogs can bark incessantly because they are bored, anxious or haven’t had enough experience around other dogs and people. Owners of barking dogs should try to exercise them more, make sure they have enough toys and are in a big enough backyard. Tanya says that it’s really just choosing the right dog for your lifestyle.

I'm just trying to tell you something!
