Uncontrollable Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are steps to control most of the sounds that come from your pet. Dogs in Cook County that bark at the sound of the family's doorbell or a knock on the door need to be taught a greeting ritual. It is their job to bark when a stranger comes to your Cook County house but you should train them that an "okay" from you means you have the situation under control and your protector can stop barking.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the whining at objects such as a broom or wheelchairs. These are all items a canine can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your Cook County neighbors and their dogs should not be tolerated bad dog behavior either. This "distance" barking can be corrected through training sometimes needing a mild zap collar so you can correct your pet from inside the house. It really doesn't take long for them to learn.
Most importantly, you must remember that a dog's hearing is over 200x better than your hearing. He can hear the sound of a child riding a tricycle several houses away. He will respond with his voice. You just need to learn how to teach your canine when it's time to be quiet when they hear the correct signal.
