Citronella Bark Collar
When it comes to quieting a noisy dog, the citronella bark collar might just be what you’re looking for. eDog stocks a wide range of bark collars for dogs that are completely safe to use and cause your pup absolutely no harm when used correctly. The collar is even more effective when it’s combined with other positive reinforcement training for your dog.
Bark collars can be very effective in reducing your pooch’s excessive barking habits or other behavioural issues. The citronella bark collar has been designed with a non-toxic citronella blend spray that is triggered when your dog barks. This collar was developed based on existing bark collar technology to help dog owners train even their most stubborn barking companions.
Bark collars have come a long way since they first came on the market, and innovations in technology have made them virtually painless for dogs now, with a focus instead on creating slight discomfort to help train their behaviour. Citronella spray is carried via compressed air when your dog barks, and it is sprayed directly into your dog's snout for maximum impact.
The spray simply distracts your dog from barking and allows you to reinforce good behaviour. Whether your dog is a German Shepherd or a Chihuahua, the citronella bark collar is adjustable to fit most sizes and breeds. Ensuring that your dog’s collar is fitted correctly is very important to ensure that you aren’t causing them any unnecessary discomfort. A citronella collar typically sits just under your dog's jawline. Once the collar is in place, tighten the tension so that it doesn't move from side to side, but don't make it too tight. Then wiggle the collar up and down once it is in place.
If you’ve got questions about the collar, reach out to the eDog team. We love our dogs and want to help all our customers find the right solution for their furry friends.
What are citronella bark collars?
A Citronella Bark Collar is one of the most effective methods to help your dog moderate their excessive barking. Painless and cruelty-free, the battery-operated collar can be a great solution to your dog’s behavioural issues.
The breed of your dog, its age, and temperament will play a role in how effective the bark collar will be. These collars work by distracting your dog with the smell, the sensation and the sound of the spray being activated. This disrupts your dog’s behaviour and reinforces that barking at certain times is not appropriate.
Try using our static shock collars if you've got a dog that's very stubborn or a working breed, that won't be impacted much by the citronella bark collar.
How to use a citronella bark collar?
Using the Citronella Bark Collar is completely automated once it’s charged and fitted. The sensor is located on the back of the collar, against your dog's throat. As the collar detects barking, it senses the vibration and fires a small burst of citronella at their lower jaw. This usually distracts the dogs from whatever they're barking at, and they quickly associate it (the spraying of citronella) with their bark. Over time, you’ll see reduced barking as a result of this association.
It’s important that you install your dog’s bark collar correctly and gently. An incorrectly placed collar can cause your dog pain, and that’s not what the citronella collar is about.
Start at the lowest setting for any bark collar you use. We think of bark collars as useful reinforcement tools and combine them with other positive reinforcement training. The device isn’t used for punishing behaviour, rather encouraging a specific type of behaviour. It’s also wise to choose a block of time in which to use the collar, and it’s not recommended leaving it on all day. We often see the collars being used at night or during special events that cause excessive barking during 8-10 hour windows.
