Dogs bark for many reasons - boredom, excitement, aggression, fear or in warning. Excessive barking, however, can be a nuisance to you and your neighbors.
Dog bark collars will teach your dog when it is inappropriate to bark. The collar senses barking vibrations in your dog's throat and responds by scolding the dog with an unpleasant tone, a citronella spray or a mild electric shock. Your dog will learn quickly to associate barking with these unpleasant consequences and quiets his barking.
Bark collars are available from $35 to $200 online, in the following models:
Electric Collars sense when a dog is barking by picking up the vibrations in his throat. Electric collars deliver a mild electric current, similar to static electricity from a carpet, to deter the dog from barking. The shock is not meant to hurt the dog, only to surprise him or make him uncomfortable enough to stop barking.
Dog Silencers emit an unpleasant tone in response to your dog's barking. These high-pitched tones are inaudible to humans, but clear enough to disrupt your canine's barking. Dog silencers don't attach to your dog but mount on a window ledge or an outdoor surface.
Citronella Bark Collars come equipped with a bark sensor that releases a quick blast of citronella spray in front of the dog's snout each time he woofs. The combination of the sound, sight and smell of the spray will deter your dog from barking and teach him that when he or she barks, the collar sprays! Citronella is 100% safe for dogs, people and the environment.
