Your dog barks in vain or you would like to train it to bark when it should. What makes a dog bark? Why do they bark on command or at a tree?

When dogs are fixed they stop breeding, they stop getting cancer, they may or may not become less energetic. If the barking is purely a method of marking territory (rarely only for that reason) then yes it will stop.

If you are asking if you should fix your dog in order to stop the barking...NO. You should fix your dog for countless other reasons, and think about WHY your dog is barking. After you schedule an apointment with your vet to have your dog fixed, answer the following questions...

When is your dog barking? Is he/she left alone outside during the day/night? Is the dog left alone in the house? Do you use a crate when you are not home?

Try to tell us when, where and why your dog is barking. If you have a territorial breed that tends to bark to establish territory and frighten off predators, neutering/spaying will not solve anything. If your dog is barking out of loneliness or boredom or fear or seperation anxiety, NO neutering/spaying will not fix it.
