Ryder is a very vocal boy. He barks A LOT at other dogs, especially my parents' dog and Mike's mom's dog. Any reason why he does this? He is extremely quiet with us at home, but loud when it comes to breakfast/dinner time. Is he just 'figuring' out his voice towards other dogs? He just really started barking about at least two weeks ago. Is it his way of wanting to play? Honestly, his bark is so loud that I'm amazed it doesn't scare him at all. So far, our family dogs do not show any interest and want to be left alone. I kind of feel bad for the little guy - what should I do?
