    The Basics Of A Dog Bark Shock Collar


    One of the most common problems that new dog owners face is teaching their pets not to bark at the wrong time. The most common solution is a bark shock collar but new owners often take a dislike to that word ‘shock’.

    Dog owners have to realize that dogs understand things like "punishment" or "reward" in a different way that humans do. Unless you try to ‘correct’ or ‘punish’ your dog at the very time it is miss-behaving, it will not know why you are acting the way you are. Some new owners might feel that punishing a dog is morally wrong, without realizing that a dog's sense of punishment and resistance is much more different from humans, If the owner is berating the dog many minutes after the ‘offence’, the dog simply gets confused because it does not associate the punishment with the offence.

    So why Does a Bark Shock Collar Work?

    A dog bark shock collar works by delivering a small static discharge to the dog's neck whenever it starts barking. The shock is instantaneous and since it happens when the dog barks, the dog is much more likely to make a better connection betweeen bad behavior and punishment. With enough time, dogs eventually learn to refrain their barking so that they can avoid the punishment. The dog's natural resistance and thicker skin prevents it from feeling pain; in fact, it's the confusion caused by the static shock that makes it stop barking while it wonders what is happening.

    Far from being cruel, a shock bark collar is the only way that an immediate message can be sent to your dog when it behaves incorrectly and, by repetition, teaches your dog how not to be punished.

    No dog bark shock collar should be used for more than half an hour or so each day and then, only at times when barking would be a nuisance. Dogs are smart and they will learn to stop "bad" barking in order to avoid the punishment once they figure out the link between the barking and the shock. If you simply follow the collar's instructions that come with it, you'll teach your dog not to bark unnecessarily in no time, and your neighbors will thank you for it.

    A bark shock collar has a reputation of being cruel. Nevertheless, the shock is rather harmless and panlessl and it only confuses the dog a little. On the other hand, using a dog bark shock collar will help you train your dog and avoid invonvenient barking.
