Uncontrollable Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are procedures to control most of the sounds that come from canine pets. Dogs in Bergen 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 a stranger comes to your Bergen house but you should train them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your protector can stop making noise.
Another complaint we hear from pet owners is the barking at objects such as vacuum cleaners or tractors. These are all items a pet can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your Bergen neighbors and their dogs is not acceptable bad 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 house. 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 a squirrel running up a tree. 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.
If endless dog barking is an issue you would like to correct, please give Frank Allison, dog trainer a call or click to set up an appointment. Frank would be happy to schedule a private session in your Bergen home.
