    The Advantages Of A Sonic Bark Collar

     

    There are many dog owners who find that the natural instinct of their dogs to bark is something that needs to be controlled. Very often, the sonic bark collar is recommended for these situations, but are they really effective?

    Professional dog trainers have a saying regarding the training of dogs: "Train the master while you train the dog," and there's a reason behind it. The idea is simple, it's not enough to memorize a few movements or words, but it also requires an understanding of what the dog percieves, otherwise the instuctions will be confusing and frustrating to the dog.

    With this idea in mind, sonic collars, also known as ultrasonic bark collars are very useful for dog training if you know how to use them. The sonic collar is not a magical solution to all your dog's problems, since it still requires time and patience.

    We live in an imperfect world and the rush to quieten a dog can sometimes lead to the total miss-use of a sonic bark collar. These collars are not meant to be worn all the time. They should only be used when normal training isn't effective and when there are other dogs nearby whose bark can activate the collar even if your dog is quiet. The ultrasonic bark collar usually comes with settings that you should pay attention to. These settings refer to the level of sound vibrations (the barking) that the collar needs to detect before it activates itself, as well as the intensity of the sound that the collar will emit.

    A well adjusted sonic bark collar used at the right time will significantly decrease the natural drive of your dog to bark at inappropriate times and lead to a much better relationship between you and your dog.

    Dog trainers agree that the best way to correct a dog's bad behavior is by doing so in the same instant it happens. The question still remains whether or not the sonic bark collar is the best way to stop your barking dog. However, if for some reason you object to the electric and spray collars, you can always try the sonic one.

    The sonic bark collar is an effective way to train your dog into stopping inconvenient barking. They are not a fast fix though. The ultrasonic bark collar works only when the owner knows how to train his or her dog.
