    No Bark Collars: What You Should Know

     

    Today, there are three different methods that are used in no bark collars. All of them work, but there is some debate as to whether these collars are ethical to use. If you have a dog, you should know some basic information about no bark collars before getting one for your dog.

    Citronella Spray Collars

    There are no bark dog collars that spray the dog's muzzle with citrus smell if the dog keeps barking. Because dogs really don’t like the smell of citrus, this can be very effective as a no bark collar. Some collars also give a warning “hiss” sound, so the dog can stop barking before the smell is sprayed on its muzzle if he listens and heeds the warning sound. Trainers and professionals consider the use of these collars ethical, as there is no pain inflicted on the dog.

    Sonic and Ultrasonic Dog Collars

    These collars work by emitting a very high pitched sound when the dog barks. It sounds to the dog very similar to the sound a dog's whistle makes. Most humans can’t hear it or be annoyed by it, but dogs can and will stop barking once they realize that when they stop barking the high pitched tone goes away. Is this considered ethical by the experts? Yes. All they do is create a bit of annoyance to the dog. Note: This is the least effective type of no bark collar, as dogs can get used to the sound over time, so don't overdo it.

    Electronic No Bark Dog Collars

    When the electronic collar “hears” the dog bark, it gives the dog a mild electrical shock. The shock isn't painful, it's similar to what you feel when you handle fabrics or walk over a rug. Once again, mostly just an annoyance – but this is the type of no bark collar that some people believe is unethical. The main complaint is that this collar actually has a physical stimulus to the dog. And well, some people think that's not ok. However, these collars are very effective for reducing excessive barking, so take them at least into consideration.

    There are three types of no bark collars that you can use to train your dog: citrus spray collars, sonic or ultrasonic collars, and electrical shock collars. Citronella spray and sonic or ultrasonic sounds are considered ethical, but electronic shock collars are sometimes considered unethical because of the shocking. However, none of these methods are harmful or dangerous.

    no bark collars are a great way to reduce excessive barking that isn't related to your dog's health. Although most people don't have a problem with them, some of them think shock collars are unethical. Nevertheless, all no bark dog collars are perfectly safe.
