Nonstop 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 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 an unknown person 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 barking.
Another concern we hear from pet owners is the whining at objects such as vacuum cleaners or rakes. These are all things a dog can learn to live with quietly. Running the property lines and barking at your Racine County neighbors and their dogs is not acceptable bad dog behavior either. This "distance" barking can be corrected through training sometimes needing a mild shock collar so you can correct your pet from inside the from a distance. It really doesn't take long for them to learn.
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 correct signal.
