Bark collars are used for dogs that tend to bark excessively. These devices may be helpful in correcting dogs who become unruly due to separation anxiety, exhibit uncontrollable barking, as well as those who have not responded to other forms of training. With sensors installed around the dog's neck, these collars emit corrections in the form of vibrations, static, beeps, or a combination of these - to prevent them from barking.
Bark collars should only be applied when your dog is barking, not later. Correcting your dog in the act is key to teaching them what is acceptable behaviour and what is not. A bark collar teaches the dog that barking is associated with an annoying sensation from the collar (static shock or citronella spray), so they know not to repeat their behaviour in the future.
If you want to know which type of bark collars or products will suit your furry companion, visit eDog and choose from our wide range of models from trusted brands. Each product is carefully selected to help create a positive relationship between you and your dog while eliminating stress during the training process. We are your one-stop shop for high-quality and effective bark collars in Australia.
What are the different types of bark collars?
Bark collars Australia are primarily categorised based on the ‘correction’ they emit, which includes static, vibration, beep, and the puff of citronella. However, some models combine these corrective signals for additional potency.
Vibration bark collars: These are anti-barking collars that have sensors that detect your dog's bark and send an interrupting pulse in the form of vibration. They are a great alternative if you don't wish to use static shock collars.
Static collars: They are the most popular collars for barking dogs because of their versatility. Despite their popularity, there is a common misconception about their use, with some people assuming that they release an electric shock that may hurt your pup. In reality, the ‘static shock’ is mild and very similar to the sensation you feel when you rub your feet on the carpet then touch a doorknob.
(Note: To ensure maximum comfort and safety when using a static shock collar, visit eDog and read the product description of our electric collars dogs and our recommendations about their use, especially when it comes to the ideal intensity levels.)
Spray bark collars: Also called citronella collar, this newer but increasingly popular no bark collar dog collar emits a small burst of citronella spray near your pet’s snout to interrupt it from barking. Citronella dog collar is a safe and effective method that is ideal for small and timid dogs.
Beep bark collars: They are training collars dogs that emit a gentle beeping sound that is effective in training against nuisance barking. Oftentimes, they are combined with vibrations to make sure to get the attention of your pet.
How to fit a bark collar on my dog?
Anti barking dog collars need to be of correct size and must be fitted high up on your dog’s neck, right beneath its jawline, which is the narrowest point. A properly fitted collar does not move side to side or slip up and down. Once the product is in position, give it a quick shake up and down.
The instruction stated above also applies to spray collars; however, make sure that the spray outlet faces towards your dog’s snout and is high enough that the citronella scent reaches its nose.
By contrast, if you were to place the no bark dog collar around the thickest part of your dog’s neck (the base of the neck), it would slip up to its narrower part, preventing the product from delivering the ‘correction’. In many cases, people who claim that their dog barking collars are not effective or faulty have not fitted these products properly around their dog’s neck.
