    About Electronic Dog Collars

    Before you go out and purchase an electronic dog collar, you should know what an electronic dog collar is. Actually, there are several different kinds of electronic dog collars, and they are used for two main purposes: barking and containing a dog within the parameters of a yard.

    Dogs, will, of course, bark. However, how much they bark depends on what kind of breed they are. For example, there are some smaller dog breeds that bark more than larger dog breeds. So, for those dog owners who cannot stand incessant barking, they purchase an electronic dog collar.

    The main purpose of the electronic dog collar is to stop a dog from barking. There are two main ways this is achieved. In the first way, sensors in the dog collar can tell when the dog is barking, and each time that the dog barks, the electronic dog collar emits a high pitched noise that only dogs can hear, thus making them stop barking.

    For the second kind of electronic dog collar, you first need to have an electronic fence installed in your yard. Although there are packages that allow you to do this yourself, it can get complicated, so unless you have experience doing that, hire a professional to install it.

    Electronic fences are invisible fences that restrain a dog from leaving the property. They have the benefit of being invisible for those people that donít like the look of fences. When a dog wears an electronic dog collar and goes too close to the outside perimeters of the electronic fence, the dog is met by an electric shock.

    There are two ways that electronic dog collars are operated, either on their own, or by a remote that is directed at the collar by the owner. These kinds of collars have been useful in training dogs, but one must also think of the humane aspects of it. Although the electric shock they receive is not immense, there are still alternatives to teaching a dog not to do something, such as squirting water at them with a spray bottle.

    However, electronic dog collars are alright to use during the training process, as long as they are no longer used once the dog has been trained. If you would like to purchase an electronic dog collar, visit your local pet supply store or go online. With the proper research, you are sure to be able to find one that will get your dog trained.
