The Sonic Bark Collar and Its Uses

A lot of people find that their dogs’ tendecies to bark without a reason need to be put under control. While there is much sympathy for this viewpoint, how effective is the sonic bark collar in creating this control?.

Professional dog trainers have a saying regarding the training of dogs: “Train the master while you train the dog,” and there’s a reason behind it. The idea is simple, it’s not enough to memorize a few movements or words, but it also requires an understanding of what the dog percieves, otherwise the instuctions will be confusing and frustrating to the dog.

However, for those owners that understand their dogs behavior, the sonic collar (also known as the ultrasonic collar) is a good training tool. What could be simpler than putting a special collar on your dog to make it quiet? In a perfect world - nothing!.

In the imperfect world we live in, some people tend to missuse the dog collar in an attempt to keep their dogs from barking. First of all, these collars shouldn’t be put on dogs 24 hours a day, as this would cause stress to the dog. The sonic collar should be used only to stop excessive barking and only when there aren’t other dogs around that could accidentally trigger your dog’s collar with their barking. In addition, the ultrasonic bark collar has different settings that you should pay attention to before making your dog wear it. These settings refer to the level of sound vibrations (the barking) that the collar needs to detect before it activates itself, as well as the intensity of the sound that the collar will emit.

A well adjusted sonic bark collar used at the right time will significantly decrease the natural drive of your dog to bark at inappropriate times and lead to a much better relationship between you and your dog.

Although it is aggreed that the best way to train a dog to stop an innapropriate behavior is to catch it then and there. Some people wonder if the sonic collar is effective in this way. Nevertheless, if you have a problem with shock or spray collars, the sonic collar is a good option.

The sonic bark collar is an effective way to train your dog into stopping inconvenient barking. They are not a fast fix though. The ultrasonic bark collar works only when the owner knows how to train his or her dog.
