Excessive 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 canine pets. Dogs in Emerald Grove 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 an unknown person comes to your Emerald Grove door but you should train them that an "okay" from you means you have the situation under control and your protector can stop barking.
Another concern we hear from pet owners is the barking at objects such as a shovel or rakes. These are all items a dog can learn to live with quietly. Running fence lines and barking at your Emerald Grove 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 pet from inside the home. It really doesn't take long for them to learn.
Most importantly, you must remember that a dog's hearing is over 200x 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 correct signal.
