    Is The Anti Bark Spray Collar Humane?

     

    Due to the controversy of other types of training collars, such as the sonic collar and much debated electric shock collar, the spray bark collar presents itself as a good solution that isn't as controversial as the others. Before getting an anti bark spray collar for your loved pet, you should really understand the principle behind it as well as the differences between the different models that there are.

    The spray bark collar

    Dog Owners that have pets that bark more than they would like to can use the anti bark spray collar as a good, effective, and humane solution to the problem. This collar works with detectors that can sense when the dog is barking and in turn, the collar responds by releasing a spray of cintronella that squirts the dog's face. The dog smells, feels, sees and hears the drops of spray that were spurted around. The odor of citronella isn't pleasurable to the dog, and it'll make it stop barking in order to try to figure out what happened, and with time, the dog will eventually link the spray with the unwanted barking.

    PetSafe and Innotek are the couple of popular brands of spray bark collars in the US. It's always a good idea to do a bit of research and compare the different models in the market before you decide which collar you shoudl buy. Few of the factors that influence the choice of the spray bark collars constitute the dog?s size, its type, battery backup, coverage range and additional features offered.

    When you compare the several features of the several models available with what you think your dog needs, you'll get a much better collar for your money.

    Advantages of the spray bark collar

    They are considered to be humane and hence have proven to be the humanitarian's solution to calm down pets and the scent is neither harmful to the pet nor the owner. One study that took place in 2003 at the Mesa Veterinary Hospital showed that anti bark spray collars were effective in reducing excessive barking when used in training.

    The purpose of this article is to let you know a bit more about the spray collar and how it works. It also mentioned some factors to take into account when getting a spray collar. Finally, it talks about a study that backs the efficiency of the spray collar.


    The spray bark collar is a good alternative to other types of training collars. Unlike the shock collar, there's no controversy attached to it. Finally, the anti bark spray collar can be bought online or in a pet store.
