A dog bark collar is designed to correct a dog's barking behaviour by using it for short periods of time. At eDog, we offer a wide range of anti-bark collars including static dog collars, citronella dog collars, and vibration dog collars, to help you control your dog's barking without harming them. Our goal is to maintain a positive and obedient relationship between you and your pet through our fun and interactive tools, and to reduce the stress associated with training.
How to choose the right dog bark collar?
How you select a dog bark collar depends on the size of your dog, how it behaves, and your personal preferences. Here are a few key factors to consider before you purchase anti-barking dog collars.
The type of correction your dog needs
First, determine the type of correction your dog needs. If it’s your first time using dog collars to stop barking or are unsure what to use best, we recommend you start off with a citronella collar. However, if your dog is extremely stubborn, you may be better off using a static shock collar.
A citronella dog collar releases a puff of citronella spray to discourage your dog from continuing to bark. If your dog is sensitive, doesn't like water, or is just learning how to behave around dogs, citronella is the best option. A static shock collar, on the other hand, produces a small static shock when it detects barking. However, before trying it on your dog, we suggest you try using it first, so you can adjust the settings to the level that your dog is comfortable. When all other training methods have failed, a static shock collar is a good training solution for hard-to-train dogs.
Your Dog's Size
Your dog bark collar should be the right size, so your dog will be comfortable when wearing it. To choose the right collar size, you should first know your dog’s size. Dog training collars and bark collars often have size guides based on the dog’s weight, so you can use this guide when buying bark collars for dogs.
The collar’s durability
When choosing a dog bark collar, consider your dog's lifestyle. Dogs who enjoy swimming, frolicking in the rain, and playing rough should have a collar that is durable and can withstand their activities. At eDog, we offer waterproof and submersible collars for dogs.
Your dog’s temperament
When investing in collars for barking dogs you should consider your dog’s personality traits. This is to ensure you choose a collar that is appropriate to correct the behaviour and to avoid overcorrecting its inappropriate actions.
A citronella collar is a perfect solution for dogs who are anxious, sensitive and may react negatively to feeling static shocks. It distracts them enough to teach them to stop barking excessively, but without adding to their stress.
Dogs who are stubborn or who were rescued from abusive environments are usually better suited for static shock collars. It will allow you to handle your dog's behaviour positively, and you'll soon see results. Static shock collars yield quick results for most dogs. As a result, both you and your neighbours will get some peace in no time.
How to maintain a dog bark collar?
You need to clean your dog bark collar regularly so the smell doesn't follow it wherever it goes. Additionally, prolonged exposure to dirt or water can create an ideal environment for bacteria to grow.
For a dog bark collar with a nylon material, you can either hand wash it or wash it in a washing machine using dish soap or a mild detergent. After washing, you should lay the collar flat to dry.
If you have leather pet barking collars, you have to be very careful. If you don’t take precautions, leather can break or get scratched in the washing machine if you’re not careful. This is why you should wash it by hand. Follow these steps:
- If the collar has built up dirt, you can mix a small amount of dog shampoo in a bowl of water and let the dog bark collar soak for around 10-15 minutes. You need to use dog shampoo to prevent irritation to your dog's skin.
- Once the collar has been properly soaked, rub it gently to remove any dirt that may have been stuck to the leather.
- You can then hang it up to dry naturally. It's a good idea to pat it with a towel first to get rid of excess water before hanging it up, so the drying process goes faster.
When it comes to cleaning a smelly leather dog collar, hand washing is the best way to remove dirt, bugs, and other irritants that your dog picked up on its outdoor adventures. A dog collar can be deodorised using dog shampoo, since it has all the ingredients needed to make it smell great. However, you can also use natural ingredients found in your kitchen. Take a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and mix it with some water and soak the collar in it. With minimal effort, it will eliminate any unwanted stench.
