End NUISANCE Barking For Good
Our furry friends love barking, but nuisance barking is identified as a major behavior problem that affects 1 in 3 dogs. We'll help you find a safe and humane bark control solution for your dog. The tools we review include only the best ultrasound, spray, vibration and static stimulation collars.
Our furry friends are always barking their way in and out of trouble, and this is just one of the ways in which dogs communicate vocally with humans, besides sounds like howling, whining and growling. Learn why your dog might bark too much.
As much as we love our little furballs, they require proper training at a young age to ensure that they aren’t keeping you up all night with their incessant yapping. Bark collars are a safe, humane and highly effective training tool.
TESTING BARK CONTROL COLLARS
When it comes to bark control collars, we all want to know what the stimulation actually feels like. Here you can see a real life test of 3 types of collars, a spray collar, a static correction bark collar and a remote e-collar with vibration mode. You can find the specs and features comparison of those collars, or read about each collar in detail on our website. Now, if you decide to go for an e-collar, make sure you learn how to use it properly and only use it on lowest levels of stimulation. As you can see in this video, a level 7 (highest) stimulation on a SportDog collar, for example, can definitely scare and hurt your dog, especially if you have not introduced your dog to the collar properly and cranked it up to a high level right away. In the video below you can learn what NOT to do with your e-collar: it is how you use this tool that will make it an effective training tool or a shock-machine.
E-COLLAR vs SHOCK COLLAR
There is a common misconception about e-collars being shock collars. We endorse only safe and humane training tools and want to make sure that everyone who uses e-collars knows how they work and how to use them properly. Thus, we offer you this quick overview by someone who we respect and admire - Tom McGovern, the Head Trainer at Off Leash K9 Training. They specialize in bringing military/police-level precision obedience to household dogs. If you plan to use an e-collar for bark control, do check out some training videos and make sure you can use it properly.
SPRAY COLLAR REVIEW
As dog owners, we are naturally concerned with our pup's well-being. Safety first! That is why the collars we review are harmless and have tons of safety features - nonetheless, it is possible to get hurt even with a plastic spoon, so make sure you read the instructions, test the collar on yourself first and use it properly. Options include vibrating collars, spray collars, ultrasound collars and static collars which we review here. On this video you can see a review of a spray collar from a real dog owner - Angie, check out her channel here. And if you feel like you need to see more real people test collars out, just take a look at our playlist.
