Is excessive barking a sign of dog anxiety?

Excessive Barking

Dogs who suffer from separation anxiety may bark and whine in an attempt to call their owners. If your pooch barks upon your departure in conjunction with other behaviors such as attempting to escape, showing signs of panic, and urinating in the house, it is possibly separation anxiety. However, dogs also frequently bark for other reasons including protecting their homes, vocalizing to other dogs, out of boredom, and during play.

Our 5 month old Beagle barks at us when we reprimand him or sometimes just sits in front of us and barks for no reason. How can we determine what he may want and how do we control the barking as it becomes quite annoying?
