    When Selecting Bark Control Dog Collars

     

    If your dog barks too much ? and you?re ready to do something about it ? you probably should get a bark control collar. Selecting the collar that's best for your dog will depend on your dog's situation.

    Why So Much Barking?

    The first thing you should do is find out why your dog is barking more than usual. The dog might be trying to indicate through barking that it's ill, scared, or lonely. If your dog is barking because of one of these, then the bark control collar isn?t the answer. The solution to these situations lies elsewhere. However, some dogs bark because they are bored or plain spoiled, and they could benefit from wearing a bark control collar.

    Choosing an Appropriate Bark Control Collar

    If you?ve decided to use a bark control collar, you have three basic choices of method of deterrent. bark control collars also come in models that use a couple of these methods in combination.

    First of all, there is the citronella collar that emit a strong citrus smell whenever the dog starts to bark. Dogs don?t like this smell, and, over time, the dog will avoid having the smell around them. Some of these collars will hiss before releasing the smell, so that dogs can learn to avoid the smell.

    There are also some collars that will give small socks to the dog's neck whenever it barks. The shock is harmless and not painful, just like the one you get when you handle fabric, but it is enough for the dog to stop barking. Most of these also have a failsafe mechanism to shut off after a certain amount of time.

    Finally, there is the sonic or ultrasonic sound, which emits a high pitched sound that only dogs can hear. The sound is emited when the dog barks so that dogs will stop in order to make the sound go away.

    An advantage of these bark control collars is that they will train the dog even when the owner is not around. It's specially useful if you are away at work or asleep at night.

    If the reason your dog barks is because it's sick, hungry, or lonely, then don't use a control collar. bark control dog collars work best for the dog who barks out of boredom or habit. They work using citronella spray, sonic or ultrasonic sounds, or electronic static pulse.


    bark control collars help you reduce excessive barking, specially at night. Just make sure that your dog isn't barking because it's sick or hungry. But when the dog is just misbehaving, then bark control dog collars can be the solution.
