How Can You Stop The Noise?

Heredity gave dogs voices but there are ways to correct most of the sounds that come from dogs.  Dogs in Walworth County that bark at the noise 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 house but you should teach them that an "okay" from you means you have the situation under control and your dog guardian can stop making noise.


Another concern we hear from pet owners is the whining at objects such as vacuum cleaners or walkers. 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 is not acceptable inappropriate dog behavior either.  This "distance" barking can be corrected through training sometimes needing a mild zap 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 two hundred times 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 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.
