I really don't know. None of my dogs bark a lot & I have 4 of them. What kind of dog do you have? That can have a lot to do with why it barks a lot.

Raven - This is our 4 year old, Raven.  She is a mix that we got from a kill shelter only hours before she was going to be put to sleep because there was no room at the shelter.
If you dog is barking because someone is there, than be happy he is warning you. However, if you dog just barks at little sounds and barks to hear himself than say NO loudly and do not touch him when he stops and comes to you. If you say No and then he runs over and you pet him, it instills in his brain that barking is ok and you will praise him to stop.

Whats the use of a dog if he keeps his mouth shut  - Whats the use of a dog if he keeps his mouth shut off
Don't you want to hear dogs barking? Barking means a lot. There must be an intruder coming in your house, catching a house hold pest/s, a premonition that someone will gonna die, something invincible is in the area...isn't this fantastic that they stand as our guard all the time. Their barking is a way of communicating to us...

I just put a mug full of water on it and they run away from there, and obviously the barking is stopped... also, when i go infront of them with a stick in my hand, they stop barking...
