Non-stop Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are steps to correct most of the sounds that come from dogs. Dogs in Charlie Bluff that bark at the sound 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 a stranger comes to your Charlie Bluff door but you should teach them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your protector can stop growling.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the whining at objects such as vacuum cleaners or walkers. These are all things a dog can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your Charlie Bluff neighbors and their dogs is not acceptable inappropriate dog behavior either. This "distance" barking can be corrected through training sometimes needing a mild shock collar so you can correct your pet from inside the home. It really doesn't take long for them to learn.
It's important for you to remember that a dog's hearing is over 200x 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 canine when it's time to be quiet when they hear the proper command.
