Abstract/Summary Excessive barking constitutes 15% of all reported behavioural problems in dogs. However, no studies have previously been performed specifically examining the factors that may lead to the onset or exacerbation of this behaviour. Surveys were conducted with the aim of identifying the risk factors affecting excessive barking. Questions encompassed three areas: factors relating to the dog, to the environment, and to the owner. Factors influencing excessive barking are identified. It is hoped that this research will aid treatment of dogs showing this behavioural problem, improve advice that AMOs can give to prevent or treat barking problems, and allow owners to make an informed selection when choosing a canine companion.
