Excessive Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are ways to control most of the sounds that come from man's best friend. Dogs in Charlie Bluff that bark at the noise of the house'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 Charlie Bluff door but you should teach them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop growling.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the whining at objects such as a shovel or tractors. These are all things a dog can learn to live with quietly. Running the property lines and barking at your Charlie Bluff neighbors and their dogs should not be tolerated 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 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 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 dog when it's time to be quiet when they hear the correct signal.
