Uncontrollable Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are procedures to correct most of the sounds that come from canine pets. 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 everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop growling.
Another complaint we hear from pet owners is the barking at objects such as a broom or tractors. These are all things a dog can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your McHenry County neighbors and their dogs is not acceptable 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 house. 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 two hundred times better than your hearing. He can hear a squirrel running up a tree. 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 proper command.
