    Reluctant To Buy No Bark Collars?


    There are three different methods currently in use as no bark collars for dogs. They all give good results, but you might be wondering if using them is ethical. As a dog owner, you should know about the no bark dog collar you want to use on your noisy pet.

    Spray Collars

    Some no bark dog collars work by emitting a spray of citrus smell if the dog barks for a while. Dogs don't like this smell, so they will stop barking in order to avoid it. These collars often come with a design that makes them give out a hissing sound before they release the citrus smell, so a dog that stops when it hears the sound can avoid the release of the smell. These no bark collars are considered ethical by experts, as there is no pain involved, just a mild annoyance for the dog.

    Sonic No Bark Collars

    Ultrasonic or sonic dog collars will emit a high pitched tone if the dog barks. The sound is similar to the one of a dog's whistle. Humans can't hear this sound, but dogs can, and they soon learn to stop barking so that the sound goes away. Dog trainers and veterinarians see no problem with these collars, as they aren't harmful. Once again, there is no pain involved Ė itís just a bit annoying for the dog. To get better results, don't use this collar for long periods of time, as dogs can get used to the sound and just ignore it.

    Electronic No Bark Collars

    These collars give the dog a small electrical shock when it barks. The shock is not harmful or painful, imagine the static shock you get when you handle fabrics. Due to its name, people think that this type of collar is cruel and unethical and shouldn't be used on animals. This one isnít just an annoyance; it physically does something to the dog. Some people donít like that. But does it work? Yes, it does; so condiser it an option if your dog tends to bark too much.

    To deter a dog from barking excessively, you can choose from no bark collars that use citronella spray, sonic or ultrasonic sounds, or electronic shocking. Citrus spray collars and sonic collars are usually considered ethical, however, electrical sock collars are not universally accepted because some people think that they are painful to dogs. However, all three methods are perfectly safe for dogs.

    no bark collars are a great way to reduce excessive barking that isn't related to your dog's health. Although most people don't have a problem with them, some of them think shock collars are unethical. Nevertheless, all no bark dog collars are perfectly safe.
