Nonstop Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are procedures to correct most of the sounds that come from man's best friend. Dogs in Belcrest that bark at the noise of the family'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 Belcrest house but you should train them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop growling.
Another concern we hear from pet owners is the whining at objects such as a shovel or rakes. These are all things a dog can learn to live with quietly. Running the property lines and barking at your Belcrest 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 from a distance. It really doesn't take long for them to learn.
Most importantly, you must remember that a dog's hearing is over 200 times better than your hearing. He can hear the sound of a child riding a tricycle several houses away. He will respond with his voice. You just need to learn how to teach your canine when it's time to be quiet when they hear the proper command.
