Nonstop Barking, Barking, Barking...
How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are procedures to control most of the sounds that come from your pet. Dogs in Newville 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 a stranger comes to your Newville door but you should teach them that an OK command 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 walkers. These are all items a canine can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your Newville neighbors and their dogs should not be tolerated bad dog behavior either. This "distance" barking can be corrected through training sometimes needing a mild shock collar so you can correct your dog 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.
