Nonstop Barking, Barking, Barking...

How Can You Stop The Noise?

Heredity gave dogs voices but there are ways to control most of the sounds that come from man's best friend.  Dogs in McHenry County that bark at the noise of the house's doorbell or a knock on the door need to be taught your preferred doggy behavior.  It is their job to bark when a stranger comes to your McHenry County house but you should train them that an "okay" from you means you have the situation under control and your dog guardian can stop making noise.


Another concern we hear from dog owners is the barking at objects such as a broom or rakes. These are all items a dog can learn to live with quietly. Running fence lines and barking at your McHenry County neighbors and their dogs should not be tolerated inappropriate dog behavior either.  This "distance" barking can be corrected through training sometimes needing a mild shock collar so you can correct your dog from inside the from a distance.  This unacceptable dog behavior can be corrected in a short period of time.

 

Most importantly, you must remember that a dog's hearing is over 200x better than your hearing.  He can hear his dog food being taken out of the car truck in the garage.  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.

 

If your dog's behavior problem is an issue you would like to correct, please give Frank Allison, dog trainer a call or click to set up an appointment.  Frank would be happy to schedule a private session in your McHenry County house.
