Excessive Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are ways to correct most of the sounds that come from man's best friend. Dogs in Evansville 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 Evansville door but you should teach them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop making noise.
Another complaint we hear from pet owners is the barking at objects such as a shovel or rakes. These are all things a pet can learn to live with quietly. Running fence lines and barking at your Evansville 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 canine from inside the house. It really doesn't take long for them to learn.
It's important for you to 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 canine when it's time to be quiet when they hear the proper command.
