Dog Barking At Night

The quiet of night is a beautiful perfection that every member of the neighborhood can appreciate. However, occasionally there are the unlikely sort of pet owners that are not tuned into the communal call for silence. It is during these times that a good pair of earplugs can allow your life to swing from totally torturous to tolerable and dream filled. Alarm barking is a dog's attempt to be alert, attentive, and informative to its human "pack", as regarding unusual events. This kind of barking is common within a variety of breeds. It does not signify aggression, and (although often associated with unusual noises intruding on the dog's 'territory') is not the same as territoriality type barking. It may take the form of just one or a few barks, or it may give rise to sustained barking until the dog sees that some action has been taken. Alarm barking is more likely to arise when a dog can hear, but not see the source of, some noise. Examples of sounds which commonly cause alarm barking include doorbells, cars, noises from adjacent dwellings, and the like. It is a behavior that tends to develop with age and maturity, and also can be related to whether there are others around who might need to be informed of such events - often an alarm barker will remain quiet if alone and there is nobody to 'tell'.
