Dogs bark... that's what they do.

Unfortunately (and I'm not entirely sure why this is) little dogs seem to be wired differently and tend to bark at EVERYONE and EVERYTHING.

I have BIG dogs myself (all 6 of them), and none of them bark, bark, bark, bark like all of the little/small dogs that i see at the dog-park.

Besides getting a shock-collar (I'm not recommending this, just mentioning it because you asked), having their larynx surgically altered (I've HEARD of people doing this, but again, I only mention it because you asked and wouldn't EVER recommend this as it's cruel), or getting a muzzle of some kind... I really don't think there's any way to MAKE a dog stop barking.

Anyone else got anything?

And this is for the group... WHY is it that little dogs seem to bark A LOT more than big dogs? I know there are big dogs that bark, bark, bark all day long, but "in general", the smaller breeds seem to just bark non-stop.

Any ideas?
