    Anti Bark Collars - How Do They Work?


    Before you buy an anti bark collar for your dog, you need to do some research. What types of dog collars are there? How can you choose the right one? Are they necessary for all barking dogs?

    Options in anti bark collars

    Anti barking collars come in three types: spray collars, sonic or ultrasonic collars, and electric collars. All of these are safe for the dog and can help the dog learn to not bark as much.

    The spray collar will spray the muzzle of the dog whenever it starts to bark, Because dogs hate the smell of citrus, they want to stop being sprayed with the citrus smell. Very often, collars of this type will hiss before releasing the citrus spray, so that they eventually learn to stop the barking before the spraying.

    The second type of collars use sound. The principle of these collars is that they emit a sound that is not detectable by the human ear, but it is detected by dogs. Eventually, the dog learns to link the sound to the barking and that by stopping the latter, he can stop the former.

    anti bark dog collars that are electrical give out a mild shock or sting sensation when the dog 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 doesn’t hurt – but you also don’t want to repeat it anytime soon!.

    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 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. Eventually, the dog will stop the bad behaviour on its own, given enough time.

    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.
