Uncontrollable 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 dogs. Dogs in Edgerton 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 Edgerton house but you should teach them that an "okay" from you means you have the situation under control and your protector can stop growling.
Another concern we hear from pet owners is the barking 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 Edgerton 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 from a distance. This unacceptable dog behavior can be corrected in a short period of time.
It's important for you to remember that a dog's hearing is over two hundred times better than your hearing. He can hear his dog food being taken out of the car truck in the garage. 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.
