When other dogs bark in the park or neighborhood, some dogs will chime in with a few barks. They don’t need the other dogs to greet them with their bark. Barking can also be used as a warning signal.
If you see another dog barking at you, it’s a good idea to turn around and see what’s going on.

Why does my dog bark non stop at other dogs?
Dogs bark and lunge at other dogs because they’re experiencing some big feelings, but they’re not trying to be dominant, naughty, or protective. They don’t understand that their actions are wrong. They’re just trying to make the world a better place.
It’s important to remember that dogs are social animals, and they have a lot to learn about how to interact with other people and other animals. If you want your dog to behave in a certain way, it’s up to you to teach him.
How do I get my dog to stop pulling on other dogs?
If you can, avoid the first response that occurs to most humans, which is to stop moving, tighten up your dog’s leash and pull him close as the other guy passes. If you don’t stop the dogs from pulling you the opposite way, you’re going to have a bad time.
If you can’t get the dog to move, try to get him to look at you. If he doesn’t, then you’ve got a problem, and you need to figure out what’s going on.
How should I react when my dog barks at other dogs?
When you see another dog, try to distract him with a few tricks, such as “sit,” “down,” “shake,” or “play dead,” to keep him focused on you. He will probably grow out of this behavior after a year or two, but it’s a good idea to work on it now. If you can’t get your dog to sit, down, shake, or play dead, you may need to train him in other ways.
For example, if you have a dog who is always barking at you, it may be a sign that he’s afraid of you. You can teach him not to bark by putting a treat in his mouth and ing, “Sit.” If he doesn’t do it, then you’ll have to try something else, such as playing with him or giving him a toy. If you’re not sure what you should do, talk to your veterinarian or a behaviorist.
Why does my dog go crazy when he sees other dogs?
A lot of the dogs that bark and lunge at other dogs are stressed out. They could be frightened, aggressive, or excited. Seeing another dog without being able to escape, attack, or go hi is upsetting, so the dog is more likely to bark. Barking can also be a sign of anxiety. If you see your dog barking, it’s a good idea to check in with him to see if he’s feeling anxious or stressed.
You can do this by asking him what’s bothering him and what he wants to do about it. It’s important to remember that barking is not the same thing as aggression. Aggression is when one dog attacks another. Barking, on the other hand, is a response to a perceived threat, such as a dog that’s barking at you or someone else who’s approaching you.
How do you socialize a reactive dog?
Walk your dog during “slow” times of the day, rather than when everyone else is out and about. You should keep your dog close to you when going through doors and turning corners. If your dog is aggressive around other dogs, leave her alone while she’s eating.
If you have a small dog, you may want to keep your pet in a crate or kennel for the first few weeks of your new puppy’s life. This will help your puppy develop a strong bond with you and keep her safe while you’re away from home.
Your puppy will also learn to associate you with the crate, so it’s a good idea to place it in the same room as your other pets. You can also place your crate on the floor in your living room or bedroom.
If you do this, make sure the door is closed and the dog is not allowed to come in or out of it.
How do I stop territorial barking?
Attach a long leash to her collar, and have a bowl of high value dog treats at hand. Wait until she starts barking. When she barks, quiet once in a friendly, upbeat voice. Wait until she stops making noise. If she doesn’t stop barking, repeat the command.
If she continues to bark at you, continue to the same command, but it louder and more assertively. Repeat this process until you are confident that she has calmed down and is ready to go home with you.
Why does my dog bark at other dogs when walking?
The dogs bark to protect their territory. If your dog starts barking when other dogs walk by the house, he might be letting them know that they’re getting too close. If you have a dog that is aggressive toward other animals, such as cats, you may want to take him to a veterinarian for a check-up.
