How to stop a dog from barking ?

Posted by Paul the Dogmaster on

How to stop a dog from Barking ? . I've been in this industry for over 20 years, and I've heard all sorts of methods. Some farmers would tell me to shoot a shotgun shell over the kennel when the dogs are noisy...... sounds a bit severe doesnt it. Some people tell me they throw rocks or sticks, obviously with these methods you must be at home but how to stop barking when left alone ?  A bark control collar is going to correct your dog within a split second after your dog barks if you are there or not. Your dog will learn quickly. Some people will comment negative things about bark control collars but remember the level of energy delivered to your dog is comparable to 2 volts @ 20 milliamps, or expressed in joules approx 0.00003 to 0.0005 of a joule, you can adjust levels to suit your dog . Citronalla and ultrasonics are other options & sometimes we get people ask Do vibration bark collars work ?. Generally speaking working dog breeds and dogs with high drive are not good candidates, but dogs that are timid and are probably the omega dogs might have a better chance of success. If you want to know for sure you are getting the right product for your dog give us a call .
