    Anti Bark Collars - How Do They Work?


    It's important to do a bit of research before getting an anti bark collar for your dog. For example, what kind of collar is good for barking dogs? How much barking requires such a collar? Is it really necessary to get one for my dog?

    Choices Of anti bark collars

    There are three methods that are used for anti bark collars: citrus spray, sonic or ultrasonic (or vibration), and electrical. However, regardless of the method that the anti barking collar uses, they're completely harmless to your pet.

    The spray collar will spray the muzzle of the dog whenever it 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.

    Next, we have the sound based dog collars. When the dog barks, the collar puts out a very high pitched tone that only the dog can hear – most humans won’t hear it at all. This sound is annoying for dogs, and it makes them stop barking in an effort to stop it.

    Finally, anti bark dog collars that are electrical give a small electrical shock to a dog every time it barks. The shock is very mild, comparable to the one you'd get if you walked on a thick carpet. It isn't painful at all, but it is suprising and it really calls your attention.

    What Else to Consider?

    There are even some collars that use more than one of the mentioned anti barking methods. For instance, they might release a citrus spray, emit a sound, or both, whenever the dog barks.

    Some anti bark dog collars have an escalation device. For example, you can adjust how loud the sound is or the intensity of the shock. 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.

    It pays to do a little research on your options on anti bark collars for dogs. Collars can work by using citronella spray, sonic or ultrasonic sounds, or electronic shocking. These methods can stop your dog barking from boredom, and they are not dangerous to your dog.

    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.
