Excessive 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 man's best friend. Dogs in McHenry 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 McHenry County door but you should teach them that an OK command from you means you have the situation under control and your protector can stop growling.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the whining at objects such as vacuum cleaners or rakes. These are all things a pet can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your McHenry 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 home. 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 your car coming from over a block 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 proper command.
