Nonstop 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 Walworth County that bark at the sound of the house's doorbell or a knock on the door need to be taught a greeting ritual. It is their job to bark when an unknown person comes to your Walworth County door but you should train them that an "okay" from you means everything is fine and your dog guardian can stop growling.
Another complaint we hear from dog owners is the barking at objects such as vacuum cleaners or wheelchairs. These are all things a dog can learn to live with quietly. Watching out the window and barking at your Walworth County neighbors and their dogs should not be tolerated inappropriate 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 house. 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 pet when it's time to be quiet when they hear the correct signal.
If your dog barks too much and this is an issue you would like to correct, please give Frank Allison, dog obedience trainer a call or click to set up an appointment. Frank would be happy to schedule a private session in your Walworth County house.
