Several reasons can make your tail-wagging friends bark (though sometimes they can bark for no reason at all). For one thing, it can serve as their way to communicate and call out to other dogs. Other times making dog sounds is a way to express their emotions. Their barks can be a call of distress, a signal of danger, or simply a sign of happiness. On the other hand, as dogs can be territorial, they will growl at anyone invading their personal space. Another thing is that these needy dogs will let out a wail or soft bark when they are trying to get their owner’s attention. Can humans detect what dog bark means? According to research, there is a way to determine what your pets are trying to tell you.
So whether the dog sounds are means to alert you about something or to simply show you their excitement, a dog’s bark is surely a signal that dog owners should acknowledge. After all, our pets need love and attention. In addition, it can also serve as their way of saying they are here to protect and love us unconditionally. Next time you hear your favorite companions bark, stop for a moment and make an effort to decipher what they are trying to say. Or do the dog bark test and enjoy some bonding moments with them.
Aside from hearing other dogs bark, it can be a fun activity to do the dog bark test in alternative ways. One example can be doing some dog sounds. You can try to copy how your furry friend barks and see if they would like that. Another option can be to train them to bark using their favorite toy (a squeaky toy or plushie) or something they dislike if your dog is the type of dog that does not like certain sounds or movements such as clicking sounds or the bouncing of a ball.
