Why Dogs Bark When Left Alone http://inhomedogtrainingvideos.com

A barking dog can be a major problem for the owners, the neighbors and the dog. Few things are more annoying than a dog that will constantly bark. Big dog or small (sometimes that shrill yappy little pooch can put your nerves on end) all that barking can shatter your peace, and maybe more importantly, the peace of your neighbors. But, what about the dog? A normal contented dog will be lying peacefully. It's only when something's not right that he or she voices their displeasure. One of the most common types of barking occurs only when the rest of the pack leaves. The dog lies quite and peaceful during the time you are home together, but voice's its displeasure when you leave it alone. People naturally think its loneliness and will want to get a companion, but let's explore this behavior some more before we bring in another potential problem. Maybe if we stop and think about what's going on in the dog's mind it will give us some clues.

Dogs are pack animals. A pack animal knows the pecking order within the pack. There's always a leader of the pack, which is usually the strongest, or strongest willed, member of the group. Depending on how many individuals in the pack each member of that group knows their position in relationship to each other member, from the leader down to the lowest member. Within your family the dog considers you and any other members in your household as being their pack. If they can establish themselves as top dog they will do so. So, what happen when everyone leaves? If they think they are the top dog in their pack and their pack leaves them the dog tries to bring the pack back to where they are supposed to be…at home with him. Are we humans any different? If you are reading this I will assume you are a human. We get very upset if we lose one of our pack members.

I remember my grandson used to think it was funny to hide from his mother. Once when they were in a department store he hid under one of those round clothing displays in the middle of the store. She was completely frantic before she finally found him. She was separated from one under her care. Your pack leader at home feels much the same way. She thinks her pack, that's under her protection, is out in the world and in possible danger. Does that give you some understanding of what your best friend thinks? No wonder he or she barks all day. They do not have a cell phone where they can stay in constant contact by texting all day. They are thinking maybe if I bark loud enough and long enough someone will hear me…they do, the neighbors, and they are not happy. If you will establish yourself as the leader of the pack, and relieve him or her from that duty of being responsible, they can be at peace and not worry while you are gone.

How do you become leader of your pack? You can't just pat them on the head, throw them a treat and say "take it easy I am in control now". That just does not work. Now, we do not have enough room in this short article to explain exactly how to take control in your home. But, I know a professional trainer who has made a series of videos on just about every behavior problem a dog can think of.
