why Do Dog Bark In The Park

Barking allows dogs to communicate and socialize with other dogs at the park in a normal way. 


Dogs may bark out of eagerness or to get attention from other park goers. It's self-rewarding.


Shy, insecure dogs may bark at the park due to feeling frightened or threatened by other dogs or people.


Dogs are protective of their space and may bark when other dogs approach or invade their personal area.


Dogs sense stress and tension. Anxious owners can influence barking. Stay relaxed!

Owner Tension

Some dogs join in group barking due to pack mentality. It's contagious at the park!
