    No Bark Dog Collars: Are They Harmful Or Harmless?


    Today, there are three different methods that are used in no bark collars. They all give good results, but you might be wondering if using them is ethical. If you have a dog, you should know some basic information about no bark collars before getting one for your dog.

    Citronella Spray Collars

    Some no bark dog collars work by emitting a spray of citrus smell if the dog barks for a while. Because the smell of citrus is not pleasant for dogs, they will eventually stop barking. These collars often come with a design that makes them give out a hissing sound before they release the citrus smell, so a dog that stops when it hears the sound can avoid the release of the smell. Trainers and professionals consider the use of these collars ethical, as there is no pain inflicted on the dog.

    Sonic and Ultrasonic Dog Collars

    Ultrasonic or sonic dog collars will emit a high pitched tone if the dog barks. This tone is similar to the dog whistle sound. This sound can't be perceived by humans, but it can be perceived by dogs, who learn to stop barking so as to avoid the sound. Dog trainers and veterinarians see no problem with these collars, as they aren't harmful. Dogs only get a bit annoyed, and they learn how to avoid that eventually. Note: This type of no bark collar is considered the least effective, as the dog can become used to the sound over time.

    Electronic No Bark Dog Collars

    When the electronic collar ?hears? the dog bark, it gives the dog a mild electrical shock. The shock is not harmful or painful, imagine the static shock you get when you handle fabrics. However, there are a lot of people that think that this type of no bark collar is unethical. The main reason why these people consider this collar unethical is that it actually causes a physical stimulus that can be felt by the dog. That's why some animal lovers think that's bad. But does it work? Yes, it does; so condiser it an option if your dog tends to bark too much.

    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. Most people have no problems with spray collars or sonic collars, but the idea of an electrical shock makes them think that shock collars aren't good for dogs. None of these methods are considered dangerous for dogs.

    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.
