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 Johnstown Center that bark at the noise of the family'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 Johnstown Center house but you should teach them that an OK command from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop barking.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the whining at objects such as a broom or wheelchairs. These are all things a pet can learn to live with quietly. Running fence lines and barking at your Johnstown Center 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 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 two hundred 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.
