Uncontrollable 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 Newville 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 Newville door but you should teach them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop making noise.
Another concern we hear from pet owners is the whining at objects such as a shovel or wheelchairs. These are all items a canine can learn to live with quietly. Running the property lines and barking at your Newville 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 house. This unacceptable dog behavior can be corrected in a short period of time.
It's important for you to 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.
