Excessive 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 Rock County that bark at the noise 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 train 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 pet owners is the barking at objects such as a shovel or tractors. These are all things a canine 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 zap 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 two hundred 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 pet when it's time to be quiet when they hear the correct signal.
