How Can You Stop The Noise?
Heredity gave dogs voices but there are procedures to correct most of the sounds that come from canine pets. Dogs in Victory Heights 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 Victory Heights 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 pet owners is the whining at objects such as vacuum cleaners or tractors. These are all things a canine can learn to live with quietly. Running fence lines and barking at your Victory Heights 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.
It's important for you to remember that a dog's hearing is over 200x 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.
