    Because they can't talk.
    Barking is their primary way of communicating.

      actually, amongst themselves, body language is their primary method. barking is used in communicating with humans because humans arent very good at reading body language. barking can mean warning, excitement, hunger. owner knows best what dog says.

    Dogs have very sensitive hearing. They will often alert us to something they hear that we didn't hear. Barking is their voice. Sometimes these warnings are welcome, but often they are not because a car roaring up the road may get the same response as one coming in our driveway.
