    What's Behind A Bark Shock Collar?


    Among new dog owners the question of training their dog not to bark at the wrong time can be very difficult to answer. The most common solution is a bark shock collar but new owners often take a dislike to that word ‘shock’.

    First of all, owners have to understand that the concept of "punishment" is different to dogs than it is to humans. Dogs don't have a good sense of the future and they live mostly in the present, so unless you correct them at the very moment they do something bad, they won't understand your actions. Some new owners might feel that punishing a dog is morally wrong, without realizing that a dog's sense of punishment and resistance is much more different from humans, If the owner is berating the dog many minutes after the ‘offence’, the dog simply gets confused because it does not associate the punishment with the offence.

    Instead, Use a Bark Collar!

    A dog bark shock collar delivers a calculated static discharge when barking is occurring. The shock is fast and instantanenous and it happens at exactly the same moment the dog incurs in bad behavior. With enough time, dogs eventually learn to refrain their barking so that they can avoid the punishment. The dog's natural resistance and thicker skin prevents it from feeling pain; in fact, it's the confusion caused by the static shock that makes it stop barking while it wonders what is happening.

    Since it's not painful, professionals agree that a dog bark shock collars is acceptable and efficient in teaching your dog to behave.

    A bark shock collar shouldn't be used more than 30 minutes a day, and only at times where barking would be troublesome. Dogs will eventually learn the difference between allowed barking and "bad" barking, and stop the bad one. A dog's bark collar comes with instructions, and if you just follow them, your dog will stop inconvenient barking in no time.

    A bark shock collar has a reputation of being cruel. Nevertheless, the shock is rather harmless and panlessl and it only confuses the dog a little. On the other hand, using a dog bark shock collar will help you train your dog and avoid invonvenient barking.
