Non-stop Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are procedures to control most of the sounds that come from dogs. 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 an unknown person comes to your Cook County house but you should train them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop growling.
Another complaint we hear from pet owners is the whining at objects such as a shovel or walkers. These are all items a pet can learn to live with quietly. Running fence lines 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 dog from inside the from a distance. It really doesn't take long for them to learn.
Most importantly, you must remember that a dog's hearing is over 200 times 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 dog when it's time to be quiet when they hear the correct signal.
