Some dogs bark excessively when they're bored or lonely, especially if they are left alone for a long time. A change in your dog's environment, the addition of new toys or chew items, or changes in routine can be helpful in minimizing the barking behavior. Increasing the amount of exercise and owner attention the dog gets may also prove helpful. If possible, consider enrolling your dog in a playgroup during the day if you must be away during the week.
