Why do dogs bark?

It is natural that dogs sometimes bark, moan and howl. Dogs vocalize to communicate with people and express themselves. Sometimes we want our dogs to bark to warn us of possible dangers or to protect us from harm. At other times the barking is exaggerated and seems to have no real meaning.
Dogs bark, howl and growl because they are a dog’s natural means of communication. A dog can bark for several reasons: to encourage play, to warn of danger, to threaten intruders, out of fear or stress, out of curiosity or boredom. None of these reasons should lead to excessive or disturbing barking. It should be short-lived and dedicated to a specific occasion. On the other hand, barking for food or any other reward can develop into a problematic barking.
