Nonstop Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are procedures to control most of the sounds that come from dogs. Dogs in Racine 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 Racine County door but you should teach them that an OK command from you means everything is fine and your protector can stop growling.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the barking at objects such as a broom or tractors. These are all items a dog can learn to live with quietly. Running the property lines and barking at your Racine 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. 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 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 canine when it's time to be quiet when they hear the proper command.
