You want to enforce some rules whether your dog is in the house or out with you on the park. So it’s most likely you already know, the hard way, how much trouble an undisciplined dog can bring – from the excessive barking to the biting things and chasing people.
Enter the no-bark collar.
These are, at best, temporary, and require some time on the dog owner’s part to get the dog used to the collar. Among various collar types, the dog shock collar stands out as one of the most effective.
Some Info for Shoppers
There are three categories of bark collars. These three types are easy to remember – static, sonic, and spray. A dog shock collar is the static correction type, as it sends out a low volt shock as the corrective stimulus. The sonic type emits a high-pitched sound that is outside the range of normal human hearing, but which is within the dog’s. The spray type of collar uses a scented liquid as deterrent, since a dog has a well-developed sense of smell. The shock or static correction collar remains, by far, the most popular.
Bark or no-bark collars are also of the automatic type, meaning they trigger based on the sound or vibration they receive from the dog. This is how the dog shock collar triggers when your dog engages in that unruly behavior – barking.
As for whether static correction collars are inhumane, assuredly there are. The static shock one can get from carpets, one needs to keep in mind, is of the same intensity as that of the shock in static collars. The reason why static collars enjoy a popularity among dog owners is due to the results in brings in curbing a dog’s barking.
The electric shock is usually enough to constantly stop a dog from barking, and it’s this constancy that owners look for. Many websites selling dog supplies show satisfied customers’ testimonials about the effects of shock collars on their dogs – a noticeably more bahaved one because of the shock stimulus.
However, there’s a limitation to no bark collars – they can only respond to and therefore address on kind of behavior – barking. Training collars are what’s recommended when one needs a more genera obedience training regimen, which is what’s applied to hunting and working dogs. Remote training collars belong to this category, of which there is also a static correction type. Remote training collars that use shock as stimulus are different only from static correction types because of the remotely activated stimulus.
