Types Of Remote Training Devices
Electric anti-bark trainers are on the retail market as well as the aforementioned hand-held remotes. Anti-bark collars work well, providing that the dog understands how to shut down the stimulation. As with all remote collars, primary training is essential prior to using an anti-bark device.
Another issue is learning when and why the dog is barking. Dogs that are barking from stress or anxiety may stop barking while wearing a remote anti-bark device but will almost certainly displace their stress and form other undesirable behaviors. It is recommended that owners of barking dogs look into the causes of the barking before using an anti-barking tool. Addressing the cause can often supply a less drastic and long term solution.
Monitors: When first training your dog to be responsible in your home, you want to be aware the moment an inappropriate behavior occurs because corrections long after the fact are worthless. As a behavior is occurring is the time you can teach your dog right from wrong. There are commercially manufactured motion sensitive devices that blurt out a sound to let you know that Rover is in the wrong place and there are even seen elaborate camera systems designed to "spy" on mischievous pets. If your dog is sneaking up onto counters, tables, and furniture, these sensor devices might be worthwhile.
Audible: There are a wide variety of audible remote devices on the market. Some have ultrasonic frequencies that are inaudible to humans, while others are detectable by the human ear. There are audible hand-held units that are pressed by you for off-leash control, and others that emit the sound when motion sensors are remotely triggered by your dog.
The distance that each unit will be effective should be taken into account. Ultrasonic units are most effective at the shortest distance and lose efficacy as distance increases. Keep in mind that the units that squelch audible sounds will scare you too when you press the button. A friend of mine used to use boat horns to get focus from dogs that were running away from him during dog shows. The problem was that he ended up getting focus from everyone within a one-mile radius.
