Dog Bark Control & Remote Training

Teaching your dog to obey commands or to not inappropriately bark can be a whole lot easier with the help of a little technology. If you simply need a solution to stop your dog from uncontrollably barking every time someone walks by the house, or when she gets riled up, a bark collar or stationary unit could be the answer. These devices are triggered by the sound of your dog’s bark, sometimes in conjunction with the accompanied vibration of the bark. When a bark is detected, they emit a correction that startles your dog and helps you train her that the barking is not allowed. If you’re looking for a training aid to help teach your dog certain behaviors, such as boundaries, appropriate separation during unleashed walks, and more, a remote dog collar could be handy. These solutions grab your dog’s attention and work in conjunction with positive reinforcement. After your dog receives the correction via one of these collars and takes the desired action, it’s your job to reward her with a treat and praise. There are several different kinds of bark collars and remote training collars on the market, each designed to either curb unwanted barking or aid in the training process. Static collars emit a gentle static charge to get your dog’s attention. It is important to understand that this charge is not a harmful electric shock, but rather a static charge not unlike the one you might feel after walking across a carpet in socks and touching a metal doorknob. Many of these collars have varying degrees of intensity—some that automatically calibrate to the lightest effective charge and others that you will need to calibrate to the lightest effective charge. Static collars are best for dogs who are not skittish, as they could frighten your easily scared pup rather than help teach her. If you think a static collar is too intense for your pup, you could try a vibration collar. Vibration collars act just as you may suspect, they vibrate to get your dog’s attention. The vibrating will likely have positive results with finicky dogs, but brave or easily distracted pooches may not react or even notice it. Another third option is ultrasonic collars. These collars emit a high-pitched, ultrasonic tone only your dog can hear. A fourth option is spray collars. These solutions are a bit larger than static and vibration collars because they need to accommodate a liquid that is then sprayed towards your dog’s face. Not to worry though, the liquids are safe and often include natural calming pheromones to help your pup relax.
