PetSafe Bark Control
Nuisance barking is one of the most common problems among dog owners. Because dogs usually bark most when their owners are not home, it can be a challenge to correct and stop the behavior. PetSafe bark control devices help you curb problem barking even when you're not there to witness the behavior.
The most important thing to do first is to identify the reason behind your dog’s barking. Dogs bark for a number of reasons. This is a normal behavior for them. However, excessive, unnecessary barking may be due to loneliness or boredom.
For a number of dogs, barking is a behavior that is learned and it happens when they know they will be rewarded with treats to distract them or extra attention (even if it is negative attention). If your dog is a nuisance barker, take control and start to resolve the issue. A bark control device is the top option to eliminate this problem.
Bark Control Collars
PetSafe has a long list of bark control product options to help you eliminate your pet’s nuisance barking. Whether you choose static, vibration, spray, or ultrasonic bark control collars, your dog will wear a special PetSafe collar that automatically detects nuisance barking by detecting the movement of the vocal cords in addition to the barking sound. When the collar detects the barking, it automatically issues a correction. The correction immediately interrupts the barking behavior and, through repetition, teaches the dog to stop barking to avoid the correction. Bark control collars are available for dogs of all sizes and temperaments and are compatible with indoor and outdoor use.
There are 4 correction methods available for bark control collars: static shock, spray, ultrasonic, and vibration. These 4 options are all based on the same principle. The dog’s collar automatically activates when the dog barks delivering a corrective stimulation that startles the dog, interrupting the barking behavior. As a result, the dog will associate this correction with barking and slowly learn to avoid nuisance barking to avoid the stimulation.
Static Shock Bark Collars
The static shock bark collars (a.k.a. electronic bark collars, static shock collars, e-collars) stop barking by issuing a short static shock to the dog. This type of collar detects a bark through a vibration sensor, sound sensor, or both. Static shock bark collars usually have different correction levels so you can choose the right intensity for your dog. Throughout the years, the use of shock bark collars has proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce nuisance barking.
However, a number of owners don’t prefer this collar because they feel that the static shock may hurt their pet. Static bark control collars are not only effective they are also completely safe. Static bark collars should never be left on your dog for more than 10 hours at a time. But, if you aren’t comfortable with a static shock bark collar or have a very compliant dog, there are other options.
Spray Bark Collars
Also called Citronella collars, the spray bark collars do not produce static shocks, but instead deliver a fast blast of annoying citronella spray upwards, towards the muzzle, as soon as the dog starts to bark. Like a no-bark shock collar, a spray no-bark collar uses a microphone to detect the bark, releasing the spray in response to the dog’s bark sound.
This type of collar is ideal for dog owners who feel uncomfortable with the idea of using static shock bark collars or have a particularly small or sensitive dog.
Ultrasonic Bark Control
PetSafe Ultrasonic Bark Control relies on a high frequency tone to teach your dog to stop barking. Inaudible to human ears, these tones are annoying and distracting to dogs. As soon as the microphone detects the bark sound, it quickly emits an ultrasonic tone. These tones vary so the dog would not get used to the tone that they hear whenever they bark. Ultrasonic bark control is available in collar format but also as a stand-alone unit that will detect and correct the barking of any dog within it's range. These stand-alone ultrasonic bark control devices are perfect for people who have a neighboring barking dog.
Vibration Bark Collars
The PetSafe Vibration Bark Control Collar makes use of vibrations to put off nuisance barking. The moment the vibration bark collar detects barking, it vibrates, producing a strange sensation on the dog’s neck. This is a great option aside from spray collars on very obedient dogs, but it may not be enough for strong-willed barkers.
PetSafe’s Vibration Bark Collar features the best dual sensor bark detector. It has a microphone as well as a vibration sensor to identify barking. The dual bark sensor also helps reduce false alarms, because both sensors must detect the barking for the vibrations to begin.
