    The Basics Of Anti Bark Dog Collars

     

    Before you buy an anti bark collar for your dog, you need to do some research. Which type of collar is best for your dog? What are your choices? Do all barking dogs need an anti bark collar?.

    Options in anti bark collars

    Anti barking collars come in three types: spray collars, sonic or ultrasonic collars, and electric collars. All of which are safe and perfectly harmless to use while you're training your pet to reduce barking.

    A citrus spray (citronella) works by spraying the muzzle of the dog when the dog starts to bark. Because the smell of citrus is offesive to dogs' sense of smell, they immediately stop barking. This type of anti bark collar often emits a ?hiss? sound prior to the smell, so a smart dog will stop barking at just the sound of the warning hiss.

    The second type of collars use sound. These collars emit a very high pitched sound that humans can't hear but dogs can; just like on TV. Eventually, the dog learns to link the sound to the barking and that by stopping the latter, he can stop the former.

    Lastly, anti bark dog collars that are electrical give out small, harmless shocks to the dog's neck whenever it barks. To get an idea of how strong this shock is, compare it to the one you get after walking across a furry carpet. It isn't painful at all, but it is suprising and it really calls your attention.

    Other Factors to Take into Account

    Anti bark collars can also come in a combination format, which uses more than one method. They might, for example, release a citrus smell while emiting a sound when the dog barks.

    Some anti bark dog collars have an escalation device. For instance, you can select how loud the sound is or how strong you want the shock to be. The level would gradually rise until the barking ended. This will allow you to get to a level that will call the attention of your dog without stressing it. The dog can stop barking before very much happens to it.

    Before buying an anti bark collar, know your options. They come in three varieties: spray collars, sonic collars and electrical collars. All types are safe for your dog, and they will keep the barking to a minimum.


    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.
