Non-stop 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 dogs. Dogs in Afton that bark at the sound of the family's doorbell or a knock on the door need to be taught your preferred doggy behavior. It is their job to bark when an unknown person comes to your Afton door but you should teach them that an OK command from you means you have the situation under control and your protector can stop making noise.
Another complaint we hear from pet owners is the barking at objects such as a broom or tractors. These are all items a dog can learn to live with quietly. Running the property lines 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 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 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.
