Dealing with Problem Barking, adapted from Dogs for Dummies, 2nd ed.
Quote:
Excessive barking is one problem that often puts dogs on the road to the shelter. What's more, it also puts them at risk from the people in your neighborhood: The poisoning of a nuisance barker is all too common. Even if your neighbors aren't the kind to take things into their own hands, a barking dog can run you afoul of the law, and not dealing with the situation marks you as an irresponsible and inconsiderate dog owner.

Dogs bark to express a variety of emotions: anxiety, boredom, territoriality, aggression, playfulness, and hunger, to name a few.[/b]
Article goes on to suggest methods for reducing excessive barking.

Bark! Bark! Bark!, Denver Dumb Friends League, suggests methods for teaching your dog a "Quiet!" command.

Barking by Dr. Nicholas Dodman--describes the causes of problem barking: to get attention; separation anxiety; territorial; and reactive barking, with suggestions for handling each type.

Dr. P's Dog Training Library, Barking--an list of additional links to articles on problem barking. Many are dead, but a few are still active and are helpful.

I give the sit command and when he sits he stops barking, once he is quiet and calm i give affection. hopefully it will convey the message i want a quiet peaceful enviroment . but he does argue a bit
