Like any dog owner, you want your dog behaved whether inside your home or outside it.
So you have a list, drawn, from experience, about what counts as acceptable and unacceptable behavior from your dog. It is for this reason that there a variety of no-bark collars on the market. These are, at best, temporary, and require some time on the dog owner’s part to get the dog used to the collar. There is one particularly recommended unit available – dog shock collar.
Is it your first time buying shock collars? Here’s a quick guide.
Bark collars belong to three categories. 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 collar releases a tone that’s outside of human hearing range – only dogs can hear them, and be annoyed by them. The spray type releases a harmless, scented chemical that annoys dogs, which have a sophisticated sense of smell. The most popular right now is the static or shock collar.
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. So when your dog barks, the dog shock collar activates, sending out a static correction in response to the dog’s barking.
It’s understandable why some dog owners may feel that static collars are inhumane as a method of behavioral change. 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. There’s a reason why static collars enjoy good reviews from dog owners – they bring good results in less time.
The electric shock is usually enough to constantly stop a dog from barking, and it’s this constancy that owners look for. Many dog owners report a noticeably toning down of their dog’s loud and incessant barking in just a few days.
One may have to keep in mind, also, that no bark collars are designed only to correct one type of behavior, and that is 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. In this category, remote collars are subsumed. There are also remote shock collars. The key difference between no bark collars and remote training collars is that the latter is activated by a dog owner-held remote control.
