constant dog barking nuisance
constant dog barking nuisance:
You’ve read everything there is to know about the dog barking. Nothing works after you’ve tried rewards, yelling, and demands. There are a few things you can try before resigning yourself to a life of incessant barking.
There are numerous reasons why dogs bark. It could be sought attention or directed at a stranger if they are feeling threatened.
A humane bark collar will be your best bet in any of these situations to keep the dog from barking excessively.
A dog barking collar can help if your dog starts to irritate neighbors or scare children with his barking.
Even after extensive training, some dogs will continue to bark excessively. If this is the case, a compassionate training collar is recommended.
Your dog will learn not to bark every second with our ultrasonic no-shock collars
and you can feel good about employing a friendly solution that avoids cruelty and won’t harm your pet.
3 Bark Collar Myths
Myth #1: Barking collars for dogs are dangerous.
Because traditional “shock” collars are more common in society, one misperception regarding our humane bark control collars is that they are also dangerous.
Many dog owners are concerned that ultrasonic or vibration stimulation will be too much for their dogs to handle, or worse, that it may damage them. This, however, is a misconception.
Good Life has gone to great efforts to ensure that our dog barking collars are completely safe for both pets and their owners.
We devised training collars that enable you to take control of your dog’s poor behavior with the push of a button — without causing any pain or harm — as part of our research and development process.
Some of our newest bark control solutions include Positive Pet™ (a remote-only vibration collar), BarkWise™ Complete (an automatic no-shock training collar), and OnGuard™(a handheld ultrasonic trainer).
Myth #2: A bark collar must be worn at all times.
Any training collar can be hazardous to your dog if worn for longer than the prescribed period of time due to the risk of pressure necrosis.
Pressure necrosis occurs when the collar rubs against the dog’s neck for a lengthy period of time, causing sores.
To avoid this, the dog’s collar must fit comfortably around his neck and be rotated frequently to avoid uncomfortable regions.
Continuous pressure from any contact points can restrict blood flow to the tissue beneath a bark collar, causing it to deteriorate.
If the collar is too loose, the dog may not be able to feel the vibrations on his skin, resulting in inconsistent training.
In all cases, the dog owner must ensure that the collar is properly set
and that the collar is removed if it is worn for longer than the prescribed time,
which is typically 8 to 10 hours per day.
Our bark control collars use rechargeable batteries that should be charged at night anyway, so the dog will get a vacation from training and wearing the collar.
To prevent bacteria from growing, wipe the contact sites of a collar with rubbing alcohol every 2-3 days.
Myth #3: Dog barking collars will stop your dog from barking in the future.
The ultimate goal is to avoid unnecessary nuisance barking, not to stop the dog from barking all of the time.
You must teach your dog when it is acceptable to bark and when it is not.
There is no way to completely eliminate all barking because some barking is completely natural and anticipated in certain situations.
When serious threats are discovered, or the owner is in distress, for example.
You can successfully reduce excessive barking with proper training, but your dog can still bark if he has to.
