Uncontrollable 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 man's best friend. Dogs in Afton 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 an unknown person comes to your Afton house but you should train them that an OK command from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop making noise.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the whining at objects such as a shovel or wheelchairs. These are all things a canine can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your Afton 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 dog from inside the home. This unacceptable dog behavior can be corrected in a short period of time.
It's important for you to remember that a dog's hearing is over 200 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 dog when it's time to be quiet when they hear the proper command.
