Nonstop Barking, Barking, Barking...

How Can You Stop The Noise?

Heredity gave dogs voices but there are steps to correct most of the sounds that come from canine pets.  Dogs in McHenry County that bark at the noise 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 train them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop making noise.


Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the whining at objects such as a broom or rakes. These are all things 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 bad dog behavior either.  This "distance" barking can be corrected through training sometimes needing a mild zap collar so you can correct your canine from inside the house.  It really doesn't take long for them to learn.

 

It's important for you to 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 pet when it's time to be quiet when they hear the correct signal.

 

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