The perfect anti bark collar can make all the difference with stopping your barking dogs fast... and with so many dog bark collars to choose from, we figured we'd cut through the clutter and show you the ones we were most impressed with. This page shows our recommendations for controlling nuisance or excessive barking.
Let's face it, dogs bark. It's the way they communicate. However, like humans, some dogs communicate much more than others. We're not here to tell you whether your dog is a nuisance or not, that’s for you (or your neighbor) to determine. Nonetheless, if you are dealing with unnecessary problem barking then that's probably what lead you to us in the first place. Nuisance barking can usually be attributed to a few different factors such as boredom, loneliness, or simply a bad habit. But, thankfully, excessive barking can usually be corrected with the right collar.
What Exactly Is a Bark Collar?
A dog bark collar is basically a device that uses sensors to detect barking and then uses a form of correction to train your dog to stop being so noisy. The most effective types of collars have both sound and vibration sensors. If the device only uses one form of detection then the device could pick up other sounds from your dog or from other animals and just puzzle your dog. Most quality bark control devices fit into this category. When it comes to barking collars you usually get what you pay for.
Types of Collars & How Well They Work
There are three main types of effective bark devices that use both sound and vibration to detect barking: the static collar, the ultrasonic collar and the citronella or spray collar. Many bark collar user reviews can often be confusing and misleading so we will try to break it down so you can understand exactly what each type of device actually does and which unit would be most practical for your situation.
The most effective type of bark device is the static collar. This device uses a static "shock" similar to the sensation you feel when you touch something and are “shocked” by static electricity, like touching a metal object. It scares you but, it doesn’t really hurt. The static collar usually has several levels of intensity so if you have a sensitive or stubborn dog the settings can be adjusted to customize the device for your dog.
The second most effective collar is the citronella or spray collar. This unit sprays an unsavory citronella scented liquid towards the dog’s muzzle. It does not hurt the dog but, they sure hate the smell and the taste.
The third and least effective dog barking collar is the ultrasonic collar. This device emits a high frequency tone that only dogs can hear. Quite frankly, and from what we see in customer reviews, this is one of those hit or miss devices. It either annoys your dog and the dog stops barking or it doesn’t. It’s too hard to tell without actually trying the unit out.
Choosing the Right Device to Stop Nuisance Barking
Knowing a bit about what a bark collar is and the types of collars that actually work, filtering through the clutter and choosing the correct bark collar for your needs is actually pretty simple. First, choose the right size unit for your dog, usually by weight, breed and neck size. Then determine which type of device (static, sonic, or spray) you think will be most effective for your dog. The last step is choosing between the many brands of collars. We feel that Petsafe, SportDOG, and Garmin offer the greatest anti bark devices on the market. Don't forget to take a look at the reviews before you buy, because you'll usually learn something from someone's experiences with that product. Remember, you usually get what you pay for.
Finally, when using any type of barking device, please follow the instructions that come with the collar to insure that you do not cause additional stress to you beloved pet, and always be patient... The barking will not stop overnight. Your dog needs you to understand that barking is a natural part of who they are and when properly trained, whether using a bark collar or not, your dog should learn the correct usage of their canine chatter.
