    Is A Bark Shock Collar Necessary?


    New dog owners are sometimes unprepared to deal with common problems of newly adopted or bought dogs, such as excessive barking or barking at the wrong time. The most common solution is a bark shock collar but new owners often take a dislike to that word ‘shock’.

    First of all, owners have to understand that the concept of "punishment" is different to dogs than it is to humans. Because dogs live in the present almost exclusively, they don't understand that their behavior needs to be corrected unless they're punished at the very moment they misbehave. Some new owners might feel that punishing a dog is morally wrong, without realizing that a dog's sense of punishment and resistance is much more different from humans, For example, if the owners scold their dog for several minutes after the offense, the dog might get confused and fail to link the behavior with the scolding if the scolding goes for too long.

    Instead, Use a Bark Collar!

    A dog bark shock collar delivers a calculated static discharge when barking is occurring. The mild shock is a punishment delivered by the bark shock collar at exactly the right time for the dog to associate one with the other. With enough time, dogs eventually learn to refrain their barking so that they can avoid the punishment. The dog's natural resistance and thicker skin prevents it from feeling pain; in fact, it's the confusion caused by the static shock that makes it stop barking while it wonders what is happening.

    Since it's not painful, professionals agree that a dog bark shock collars is acceptable and efficient in teaching your dog to behave.

    No dog bark shock collar should be used for more than half an hour or so each day and then, only at times when barking would be a nuisance. Dogs will eventually learn the difference between allowed barking and "bad" barking, and stop the bad one. By using the bark shock collar according to the instructions that always comes with it, you will soon be able to teach your dog when not to bark while still allowing it to bark at other times.

    A bark shock collar has a reputation of being cruel. Nevertheless, the shock is rather harmless and panlessl and it only confuses the dog a little. On the other hand, using a dog bark shock collar will help you train your dog and avoid invonvenient barking.
