Asking why a dog barks is like asking why a person talks. Dogs bark rather than talk because they came with the right parts for it, but like speaking, once barking produces feedback from the environment, it can easily acquire many new uses. Kiki will discuss how to assess the function(s) of an individual dog’s barking and how to use that information in designing customized training plans, as well as some inventive protocols that—with an understanding of the principles at work—can be adapted for addressing barking across various circumstances.
