Ha Sandra, must be totally honest, this is a new question for me! In my experience I have never heard of an electric fence causing a dog to bark. what normally causes barking is the dog being bored/frustrated, not getting exercise and very often not getting enough stimulation by way of chew toys left to entertain them and it could be that the dog is also not getting enough human company and be lonely. If the barking is only happening when the humans are away from the home, it could be that the dogs is suffering from a degree of separation anxiety as well. thks S
