Barking:

Most dogs make some kind of noise in different ways. They can bark, howl, whine, and do other things. Excessive barking is regarded as a behavioral issue.

Determine why your dog is barking before you can correct excessive barking. 

  • Warning or alert

  • Playfulness and excitement

  • Attention-seeking

  • Anxiety

  • Boredom

  • Responding to other dogs

Learn to control excessive barking. Consider teaching them the bark/soft commands. 

Chew:

Chewing is a natural behavior in all dogs. Chewing is a necessary activity for most dogs; it is just one of the ways they communicate. Excessive chewing, on the other hand, can quickly become a behavioral issue if your dog makes a mess. The following are the most common reasons for dog chewing:

  • Puppy teething

  • Boredom or excess energy

  • Anxiety

  • Curiosity (especially puppies)

When you are away from home, keep your dog covered or confined in an area where less damage can be done.

If you see your dog chewing, immediately distract him with a sharp voice. Replace the item with a chew toy. One of the most important things you can do is make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise so he can use up energy and be stimulated that way, rather than chew.
