Excessive Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are steps to control most of the sounds that come from man's best friend. Dogs in Mallwood that bark at the sound 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 an unknown person comes to your Mallwood house but you should teach them that an OK command from you means everything is fine and your protector can stop barking.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the barking at objects such as a shovel or walkers. These are all things a canine can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your Mallwood 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 pet from inside the from a distance. 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 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 pet when it's time to be quiet when they hear the proper command.
