Non-stop 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 your pet. Dogs in Rock County that bark at the sound of the house's doorbell or a knock on the door need to be taught your preferred doggy behavior. It is their job to bark when a stranger comes to your Rock County door but you should teach them that an "okay" from you means you have the situation under control and your dog guardian can stop making noise.
Another concern we hear from dog owners is the barking at objects such as vacuum cleaners or wheelchairs. These are all things a dog can learn to live with quietly. Running fence lines and barking at your Rock County neighbors and their dogs is not acceptable inappropriate 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 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 200 times better than your hearing. He can hear your car coming from over a block away. 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 proper command.
