    Should You Use A Barking Collar On Your Shih Tzu?

     

    Barking dogs may put off the neighbors and may cause a disturbance, causing responsible dog owners to control their pets with the help of a dog barking collar. Putting one’s hand around the pet’s muzzle and saying “quiet” may be sufficient to quieten down the pet, and the road to success would require being persistent. This may work well with puppies, but older dogs that are set in their ways may need an anti-bark collar.

    The dog barking collar should be chosen with care and one may need to choose ones such as Citronella rather than shock collars. No doubt, the dog barking collar should only be used with recalcitrant dogs as it will effectively help put a stop to their barking, though care should be taken to ensure that the dog barking collar one chooses should be humane as well as effective in stopping excessive barking. There are different levels of correction that one may choose.

    Technology Can Sense the Vibrations of Barking Dogs and Act to Stop It.

    The dog barking collar uses technology that simultaneously can sense both sound as well as vibration and only when the two combine, will it trigger the electronic correction. Such collars are able to sense the vibrations within the dog’s throat that occurs during its barking, and so is able to prevent false corrections that may occur when other dogs bark. One should consider the weight of the dog when choosing a dog barking collar - a weight of eight pounds is generally recommended.

    There are a number of different dog barking collars that one can try, and the main consideration is that it should be humane and not get triggered by the barking of other dogs. Some of the better products will get triggered when the dog barks and will emit a harmless spray under the chin that will help to surprise and immediately distract the dog, and thus stop its barking. Such a product is very effective and also humane and may be purchased in either standard or be of a size that is suitable for smaller breeds.

    One should take care and ensure that one does not use the dog barking collar in case the barking is a result of separation, anxiety, fear or phobia. Nevertheless, the dog barking collar can be a Citronella collar, aversive sound collar, or an electric shock collar. Using one may no doubt stop the dog from barking, but they still suffer from the drawback that they do not address the underlying cause of its barking. This may result in symptom substitutions in which the dogs may take to digging, escaping or becoming destructive as well over aggressive. It may thus be best to use a dog barking collar in conjunction with behavioral changes that are based on the root cause of barking.
