Non-stop 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 Rock County that bark at the noise of the house'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 Rock County house but you should train them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop barking.
Another complaint we hear from pet owners is the barking at objects such as vacuum cleaners or wheelchairs. These are all things a pet can learn to live with quietly. Running the property lines and barking at your Rock 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 canine from inside the home. 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 200x 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 correct signal.
If your dog barks too much and this is an issue you would like to correct, please give Frank Allison, dog obedience trainer a call or click to set up an appointment. Frank would be happy to schedule a private session in your Rock County house.
