My healthy 13 yr old male shih tzu constantly barks

He has always been verbal and high strung, but lately his barking is out of control. He's a good boy otherwise. He will bark until he gets what he wants, a treat, or to get down from the bed, or up, he's never been able to jump up or down on his own. Sometimes he just barks it seems for no reason. I don't think he has dementia, he's very alert and hyper intumed to everything around him. I also have a 3 yr old shih tzu and 2 persian cats, they all get along.
