How Long Will my Dog Need to Wear a Bark Collar?


More About Using Bark Collars (We have answers for you)

Assuming you got the right bark collar for your dog and the correction level is just a bit above your dog’s comfort zone (because we don’t want to completely get rid of the barking by setting it to the highest level) - this is how you teach your dog that some things are not worth the barking.

After a few consistent training, your dog will realize that the correction is caused by the barking -- the dog will then resist the urge to bark at normal neighborhood activities.

Now, since you have seen the dog’s discipline towards barking, you decided to remove the bark collar. And you realized that your dog is barking at almost everything - AGAIN. The length of time the dog needs to wear a bark collar is dependent on the dog’s motivation when it comes to barking.

So, it is best to plan ahead on how to train your dog to stop the nuisance barking; for example, we have customers that put the collar on their dog every night, consistently. This changes the dog’s behavioral pattern. After a few weeks, they remove the bark collar and they are satisfied with the result.

Others do a weekly refresher, which is very effective because it will remind the dog about the bark control training. Thus, the amount of time your dog needs to wear the bark collar depends on your dog’s personality… and on your bark collar training technique.

Do Bark Collars Really Work?

Nuisance barking is one of the most common dog behaviour problems. It is considered a nuisance barking when it is incessantly occurring, which results in the inconvenience of a person - do noise complaints from your neighbours ring a bell?

A responsible dog owner can stop a dog’s excessive barking by using a stop dog barking collar. It is proven to be a safe and effective tool to train any dog from barking inappropriately. So, YES! Bark Collars can train your dog to lessen the barking. This is even truer if you have to find the right dog bark collar.

The best way to use the barking dog training collar is through proper, consistent and persistent training. In this way, you will effectively teach the dog to bark at acceptable levels and forget about nuisance barking.

Apart from using the training collars on your dogs, you may want to consider distracting them with entertainment toys.

For best results, you can use the barking dog training collar with entertainment toys or yummy treats  - both perfectly go hand in hand. So, as the correction is delivered by the collar, the dog will then divert its attention in playing with the toys. Your dog will forget whatever unnecessary thing he/she is barking at when you keep your dog mentally active and busy with toys.
