Using Non Electric Anti Barking Dog Collars
Several things can be at fault with a barking dog. If an area is fenced off, but with a clear view of annoyances, like loud cars and noisy kids, he will inevitably bark. If you have a neighbor who regularly walks by, and perpetually yells at or scares the dog, things will only get worse. In this case, talk to the neighbor and ask him to treat the dog properly. Try fencing off the area of the yard that irritates him so much. If he can't see it, he may calm down.
I had been against anti bark collars for awhile, but eventually I decided that enough was enough. The thing about anti bark collars that bothered me most was that they were so inhumane. If you do not like certain dog behaviors, be they panting, drooling, barking, or sniffing at your bottom, I reasoned, you should not get a dog.
Getting an anti bark collar which would shock him every single time he barked just seemed like a cruel fix for your own oversight in getting an animal which you were not prepared to adequately take care of in the first place. But still, the temptation of anti bark collars was getting pretty compelling after, one single night, he awoke me no less than six times, and almost got the cops called.
I did some research on anti bark collars and found out that they do not all just use electricity. There are anti bark collars that, instead of using an electric shock, emit a high pitched noise which bothers a dog's sensitive hearing, and stops it from barking by the unpleasant sensation. Unfortunately, these forms of anti bark collars also seemed pretty cruel, and I felt like I just had to find another solution to the problem.
I discovered citronella anti barking collars, which seemed just perfect. Rather than shocking a dog or hurting its ears, these anti bark collars just emit a burst of citronella, which is overwhelmingly powerful and strange for a dog. It confuses him, and makes him temporarily stop his barking.
The Citronella version is a safe and humane way to keep a dog from barking. A light spray of Citronella in front of the dog’s nose is put out when the dog barks. Dogs generally do not like Citronella or the hissing noise that is let out by the bark collar when the dog barks. The dog figures out quite quickly what is happening and the result is less barking. There are many types of the Citronella collars on the market. The Citronella bark collar is seen as a more humane way to get a dog to stop barking. It has also shown to be twice as effective as a shock bark collar in making the canine stop barking.
