Dog Barking Collar

FAQ's About These Popular Collars

If you're looking for a good dog barking collar, take some time to make sure you choose the right type.

Since dogs respond differently to different collars. One might not be affected by a spray collar, but will respond well to an ultrasonic collar.

When you're looking for a good collar, there are a number of questions you need to ask. In fact, lots of people have asked these questions already. So, let's take a look at those FAQs and answers.

  • Can these collars hurt my dog?

    Ultrasonic and spray collars are designed to work on the principle of causing an uncomfortable experience for your dog every time she barks. They aren't designed to harm the dog or even cause pain.

    Static bark control collars do have an adjustment for setting the current level. If you set it too high you could cause your dog some discomfort. That’s why it's best to start at a low setting and work your way up if you aren't getting the results you want.

    Regardless of the type chosen, they are designed to cause no harm to your dog, just a harmless diversion when it starts barking.

  • Which collar will work best for my dog?

    This may take some experimentation on your part. However, as a general rule you might find better results from a spray citronella collar if you have a dog who's a great tracker.

    A bloodhound, with his sensational nose, might be more impacted by a spray collar and the irritating smell produced by it than he would by an ultra sonic collar.

    On the other hand, if you have a German Shepherd you might have better luck with a piercing ultrasonic sound than with an unpleasant smell.

  • Is my dog trained for good or might the training wear off?

    A dog barking collar generally works within a couple barks. It doesn't take long for your dog to figure out what's causing their discomfort and stop barking.

    Usually, once your dog has gotten in the habit of not barking, the non-breaking habit is developed and becomes a part of his normal lifestyle.

    However, one fit of excitement wearing his old collar can teach your dog that he can once again bark without being bothered by that smell or sound. That may be enough to set him back in his old ways of barking too much. If that happens, all you have to do is replace his old collar with the bark control collar again and do a little retraining.

    These collars are not meant to take the place of your dogs regular collar, just to be worn for awhile until he learns that discomfort (not pain) is associated with his barking.

    It’s not uncommon for owners to have their dogs bark under certain situations only, like when guests arrive or the mailman calls. These are the times the owner should consider putting on the collar, then taking it off afterwards.

  • What if I just want to stop excessive barking and not all barking?

    If you want to allow your dog to bark but put a stop to pointless and excessive barking, you can get collars that will allow the dog to bark once or twice before actually activating. That way your dog learns that it's ok to bark, just don't keep it up too long.

    Although there are many ways to stop dog barking, these dog barking collars allow your dog to communicate with you without going overboard. He can announce that he needs to go outside and do his business without filling the house with incessant yipping.

    There are a variety of products on the market. You just have to figure out which dog barking collar is right for you and your dog.
