Nonstop Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are ways to correct most of the sounds that come from your pet. 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 a stranger comes to your McHenry County door but you should train them that an OK command from you means you have the situation under control and your protector can stop growling.
Another concern we hear from pet owners is the barking at objects such as a shovel or walkers. 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 bad dog behavior either. This "distance" barking can be corrected through training sometimes needing a mild shock 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 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 dog when it's time to be quiet when they hear the correct signal.
