A rising bark means only one thing to your dog – it is time for you to play! This bark starts with a lower sound, which then rises to a higher pitch. The behavior just means that the dog is excited and wants to play with you, so take him outside and throw the ball around.
If you’re outside and you hear this telltale rising bark, reciprocate. That’s what your dog wants. Throw the ball, chase the dog around the yard, do anything to help the canine expend its pent-up energy and have a fun time.
When it comes to dog behaviors, this one is one that is fun to recognize and indulge.
Don’t get your dog started with the behavior on the next slide unless you know what it means.
