Return to Previous Page
There are three bark control collar options available that are reliable with proven results; static correction collars, citronella or spray collar, and the ultrasonic outdoor bark control/sonic products. At DogMaster, we stock the biggest and best range of barking collars Australia wide, including the popular Dogtra and Garmin bark control collars.

Static Pulse Anti Barking collar - Best Solution over 90% successful rate

The static bark control collar is the best form of bark deterrent for all breeds of dog. These models are very sophisticated and deliver a very humane, gentle stimulation to the pet to eliminate unwanted barking behaviours. Most static correction anti bark collars have multiple levels of output. The output is adjustable automatically or manually.


The automatic barking collar for dogs controls the levels of output itself. It starts from the lowest level of stimulation and if the dog does not stop barking, it will increase the level itself every 30 seconds until the dog stops barking. This means it finds the best levels for your dog and stop there.

Manual adjustable:

This means you have the control of the output. It is great when you have a smart and stubborn dog. The collar goes straight to the levels you’ve set so it stops dog from barking straight away instead of going up through all the levels to find the best level each time the dog barks.

Bark Odometer - Garmin's Bark Limiter 2's contain a feature that no other make or model has. It can tell you how many activation the collar has had. So if you are at work, or out for shopping, you can soon find out if your dog has been testing the collar.

Bark activity monitor - Garmin's new Barklimiter2 and Delta Smart collar works with Garmin smarphone apps. The app records the date, time and how many times of the dog barks. All the information are available in Garmin user account which can be access online. (information will be updated when sync with the collar)

Safety features :

Most static barking collars have built in safety switch to shut off the collar in a certain period of time to avoid over correction.

How much voltage or power is delivered by a static bark collar?      ANSWER: About 2 volts @ 20 Milliamps.

The stimulus is triggered by the vocal chords and is incredibly easy to use. Your dog quickly learns to avoid the nuisance barking and modifies his behaviour accordingly. Many customers and veterinarians have reported that dogs become more content with their surroundings.

Every dog displays different behaviour and within the Garmin, Dogtra, Num'axes, SportDOG, Petsafe and Innotek range, we have methods designed to solve even the most stubborn barker or large dog breeds, whether it is your dog or your neighbour's.

State regulations for usage of static dog collar differs. Please contact Dogmaster or review your states regulations before purchase.

Spray Anti Barking Collar - Good Solution, over 70% successful rate on certain breeds

When the dog barks, a citronella or spray collar emits a scented spray in or near the dog nose/snout. This style of bark collar has a 75-77% success rate, in particular with scent driven dogs.

Sonic collar or Ultrasonic bark control devices - Less Effective than Static or Spray around 30% successful rate on certain breeds

Basic operation of ultrasonic devices is that every time a dog barks, the device will emit an ultrasonic or sonic sound that majority of dogs dislike. The dogs then figure out that the sound follows their barking. In order to avoid the annoying sound, they are more inclined to reduce their nuisance barking. This type of bark control device is not suited for stubborn breeds or stubborn individual dogs.

With all this in mind, we recommend that you contact us prior to selecting an ultrasonic product, so that we can advise as to which system is going to be better suited to your situation. It is important to take into consideration that the sonic / ultrasonic devices often take a month to 6 weeks before real results are seen. This timeframe can be extended if there are several dogs.
