Barking! is a British children's TV series that produced two series between October 2004 and February 2006. The show was originally broadcast on ITV1's children's slot CITV. It stars Katy McGowan as Jezza, a teenage girl with a talking dog named Georgie, voiced by Will Mellor, who was given as a welcome gift by Stepfather Greg (Charles Dale) when Jezza moved with her family to Devon. Jezza is the only person that knows that Georgie could talk, as they go out on adventures around the fictional town of Stonemoor in Devon, but Georgie always causes mischief and gets Jezza in for the blame, Jezza doesn't mind though as they are still close. Other major characters in the show included Jezza's mother, Pippa (Robin Weaver), her stepbrothers Dan (Adam Scourfield) and Ollie (Tom Millner), and her stepfather, Greg (Charles Dale). The series was filmed in the small country market town of Boroughbridge in North Yorkshire.

All of the episodes of Barking! were repeated frequently on the CITV channel between 2006 and 2013.

The title sequence and design was made and produced by Hello Charlie.

The song composers and producer for the opening sequence were Rob David and Dan Delor who also did other composing for other programmes like documentaries for the BBC.

In February 2018 a similar show Waffle the Wonder Dog was released on CBeebies. It has some similarities to Barking.
