Yeah, it doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter if you are American, Mexican, and Jamaican or even German, I guarantee that you will be barked at. I want to tell you that dogs do not like everyone and some people just seem to walk with a bad omen. Once that pooch smells that bad omen on you it will react by barking at you to let you know that you and him are not cool.
Now as it relates to it’s owner, the dog will bark for many reason. It will bark to alert you. It will bark to try get your attention. It will bark when it is playing with you.
Dogs may be man’s best friend, but who is a dog’s best friend? It certainly isn’t other dogs. Dogs will go into bark mode wacko at the sight of other dogs. They will bark from now until thine kingdom doesn’t come. You see, when dogs see other dogs they think two things.
- The other dog wants to get rid of him to eat his food
- The other dog wants to get rid of him to eat all of his food.
3. Cats/ Other Animals
Many pet owners like myself have/had a mix of animals living together such as cats. Dogs, ponies, birds, Bigfoot etc. But on a normal circumstances without trained cohesion. Dogs have no tolerance for other animals especially cats. They will chase them around and bark at them until the cat is too far up the tree to realise it can’t get down. But aside from the infamous puss. Dogs will bark at any animal insight. They care zero. They will bark at grizzly bears, mountain lions, wolves, etc.
Have you ever seen your dog staring in the mirror, twisting their heads side to side and using their paws to touch the mirror trying to see if they can connect with the other dog they see? Well, dogs will bark at themselves in the mirror as they have no idea of what a reflection is and that the image they see is of themselves. So they think it’s another dog and hence the barking begins.
Yep, dogs will bark at their toys. Especially those dog toys that are mobile. Dogs love movable and fun toys and they will bark at the toy they are playing with because they feel excited.
