What is a Dog Bark Collar?
To find out which bark col ar is right for you and your training needs, visit:
Sometimes our four legged friends do not know when to stop barking. This can be caused by
fear, anxiety, excitement and even pain. Dogs just want to be heard, much like people do.
Unfortunately for us, sometimes they are very over talkative. There will be times when no
matter what you do, they will not stop barking. Trying to ignore them or console them does not
always work and can sometimes make it even worse. This is where bark collars can come in
handy.What are anti-bark collars?
Anti-bark collars are very similar to normal dog col ars with one exception. They have a
mechanism built in that recognizes when your dog is barking. Once your dog starts barking,
they will instantly be reprimanded by the col ar itself. The collar will either spray citronella or
send a harmless static shock to your animal. These two methods work wonders, enforcing the
behavior you want from your dog. These two types of col ars have their very own benefits.Anti-bark collars
: These types of col ars require a battery to be placed into the collar. Once a
dog starts barking they will be slightly shocked. Some col ars even include an audio signal in
the form of a loud beep. These two types of corrections per say are harmless to the dog and
have been proven to work wonders. For those who are worried about repeated shocks, there
are col ars with a shock limit. Once this limit is reached, the collar usual y shuts off for a
period of time. If you are not comfortable with these collars, there is another option.Citronella collars
: These collars are a very gentle way to stop your pup from barking. They
work by incorporating a citronella spray into a dog collar. Once your dog starts barking, the
col ar will spray citronella in front of your dogs snout. Dogs typically do not like this smell and
understand that when they bark it will be present.Will bark collars hurt my dog?
Studies have been shown that moderate use of either collar will not hurt your dog. Anti-bark
col ars are always up for debate, most dogs will never have side effects from these col ars.
However, the safer route is the citronella collar. Since citronella does not harm the dog, there
is no worry of discomfort or over shocking.
Bark col ars will be a great way to help reinforce your dog's training. However, they should be
used as a complement to a solid dog training regime. Combining solid training and bark
col ars will ensure a peaceful, quiet environment for you and your dog.
