As dog owners, we love our furry friends unconditionally, but sometimes their barking can be a bit too much to handle. Whether it's excessive barking during walks, when visitors arrive, or when left alone, it can cause frustration and annoyance for both the owner and the neighbours.
Fortunately, there is a solution that can potentially help control this behaviour without causing harm to our pets - citronella collars.
A citronella collar is a type of bark collar, or remote training collar, that uses a harmless burst of citronella spray to deter your dog from barking excessively. The Barktec range from eDog Australia offers citronella options for both Bark Collars- trigger automatically when your dog is barking too much- and Training Collars- that you operate with a remote control. You can learn more about Bark Collars and Training Collars here.
In this blog, we will discuss some of the main benefits of using a citronella collar for dogs that need help with problem barking.
1. Safe and Effective Bark Control
One of the main advantages of using a citronella collar is that it is a safe and gentle way to help your dog learn when it’s not ok to bark excessively.
Citronella collars use a natural and harmless citronella spray to deter your dog’s unwanted, or inappropriate, barking.
This means that you can train your dog without causing any pain or distress, which is especially important for owners who naturally want to ensure the well-being of their pets while training them to bark less..
2. A Perfect Bark Collar Choice for Small Dogs
Citronella bark collars are ideal for small dogs because they are designed to be lightweight and comfortable, and not too bulky. The collar is adjustable and can fit snugly around your dog's neck without causing any discomfort.
You can rest assured that citronella collars do not cause any physical harm to your tiny dog. The natural and harmless citronella spray they use is mildly unpleasant for your dog, but not painful- even for smaller pups
3. Easy to Use
Citronella dog collars are incredibly easy to use. Simply put the collar on your dog, ensure the correct fit, and turn the receiver unit on. Then all you have to do is let your citronella collar do its job!
A Citronella Bark Collar is designed to detect your dog's barking and release a burst of citronella spray when necessary. There is no need for you to manually trigger the collar, which makes it a convenient and hassle-free solution for busy dog owners.
A Citronella Training Collar offers the benefit of you choosing the right moment to correct your dog’s unwanted barking with a harmless spray of citronella. For example, you can delay the correction until after you have verbally corrected your dog, to reinforce the message.
4. Effective Bark Control
Citronella collars are highly effective at controlling your dog's barking. The spray of citronella is unpleasant for dogs, and they quickly learn to associate the barking with the spray. This means that over time, your dog will bark less and less, allowing you and your neighbours to enjoy a quieter and more peaceful environment.
Speaking of neighbours, this is another benefit of using a citronella collar. Excessive barking can be a source of frustration for your neighbours, and it can even lead to complaints from your local authorities. By using a citronella collar, you can train your dog to bark less and avoid any unnecessary conflicts with those around you..
5. Affordable Solution
Citronella collars are an affordable solution for owners who want to control their dogs' barking- without breaking the bank! Compared to some other types of bark collars, citronella collars are relatively inexpensive and can be a cost-effective way to train your dog. They are also a more affordable option than hiring a professional dog trainer..
Citronella collars are a safe, effective, and affordable way to control your dog's barking. They are easy to use, comfortable for your pet, and humane, making them an excellent option for dog owners who want to ensure the well-being of their furry friends. If you're looking for an effective way to train your dog, a citronella collar could be the perfect solution for you.
Remember, it's important to be patient and consistent when using a bark collar, and to always prioritise your dog's safety and well-being. With the right approach, you can train your dog to bark less and enjoy a more peaceful and harmonious home environment.Check out the range of Citronella Anti-Bark Collars from eDog Australia here!
