    Things To Know About Anti Bark Collars For Dogs


    It's important to do a bit of research before getting an anti bark collar for your dog. For example, what kind of collar is good for barking dogs? How much barking requires such a collar? Is it really necessary to get one for my dog?

    Options in anti bark collars

    Anti barking collars come in three types: spray collars, sonic or ultrasonic collars, and electric collars. All of these are safe for the dog and can help the dog learn to not bark as much.

    A citrus spray (citronella) works by spraying the muzzle of the dog when the dog starts to bark. This is very uncomfortable for dogs, since they greatly dislike the smell of citrus. Very often, collars of this type will hiss before releasing the citrus spray, so that they eventually learn to stop the barking before the spraying.

    Next, we have the sound based dog collars. When the dog barks, the collar puts out a very high pitched tone that only the dog can hear – most humans won’t hear it at all. Eventually, the dog learns to link the sound to the barking and that by stopping the latter, he can stop the former.

    anti bark dog collars that are electrical give out a mild shock or sting sensation when the dog barks. To get an idea of how strong this shock is, compare it to the one you get after walking across a furry carpet. That is, it doesn't hurt and it isn't painful, but it really makes you pay attention.

    Other Factors to Take into Account

    There are even some collars that use more than one of the mentioned anti barking methods. For example, it may use both the ultrasonic sound with the citrus smell.

    Other collars have a way of adjusting their intensity. It would use a quiet sound, or lower levels of shock, etc. You can increase them if lower levels aren't good enough to stop the barking. This will allow you to get to a level that will call the attention of your dog without stressing it. With time, your dog will learn to behave without the use of the collar.

    Before buying an anti bark collar, know your options. Anti bark collars come in three types: citrus spray collars, sonic collars, and shock collars. These methods can stop your dog barking from boredom, and they are not dangerous to your dog.

    It's always a good idea to learn more about anti bark collars before getting one. In addition, you'll feel more comfortable when you make your dog wear one. Just ask your local pet store for more info on anti bark dog collars.
